This is my 2nd year in the review. Now that my kid is in the 2nd grade, she has yet another great teacher in Ms Lima. My kid is ever excited to go to school. Teacher spends a lot of time in the classroom and probably focusing on right set of skills (developing a passion for reading and writing skills). I have come to believe that this is equally important compared to STEM subjects.
Overall, it's positive experience. Starting from the folks helping to cross the roads, principal Garcia and class teacher, it's been pleasant. We were pleasantly surprised with the annual talent show which Ms Bailey made it happen even with the shortage of funds prevalent in EESD.
Millbrook leaves a lot to be desired. The teachers are hit are miss (some are ok and some are fantastic). The principal is not a friendly person. The PTA is a small, exclusive bunch. I expected a lot more for the neighborhood.
My daughter is almost graduating this school and I was shocked to hear that she wasn't going to have a graduation. She was very upset about this and so was I. I don't think I ever want to recommend this school to anyone I know who has children about the same age. There seems to be many fights breaking out at this school and my kid doesn't feel safe here. I wish I would have known about this earlier so I could have transferred her to a different school, but now it is too late because she is almost graduating. The teachers seem very kind and respectful, but I certainly do not like the principal. My child says that she has heard Mrs. Welch, the principal, say many rude things to confused parents. She refused to sell school teachers and yells a parents.The ladies who work in the office are not as nice either. I always try to avoid having to go in there. My kid dreads seeing the principal every single day. So do I.
