    "My child has gone here for 4 years. This is probably the worst year yet. Lacks communication with parents. The excuse is because some parents aren't responsive. Some teachers never respond even in agenda book. No homework is really given to allow kids to practice what they are learning. The reason I got is because some kids don't turn it in so they don't want the bad grades to affect the grade average. Some teachers post weekly subject and study material on the school site but that is rare. The excuse i got is because of all the testing they do. They send home study guides two days before tests instead of Friday, so kids can get a bit of studying in on the weekend. Some teachers will not post grades until right before report cards go out. They don't inform you when your child receives negative grades. Even when your up there all the time. The principal doesn't seem to take in your concerns. I asked that the tutoring work be sent home for homework. He told me to give him a couple days to start the process going. Nothing ever happened. I ended up buying workbooks and now I'm winging it through the school year. I can't stand this school. There is no organization. Last year."

    "My daughter went to Mill Creek last year for perk. I am highly disappointed in this school. Unfortunately my daughter will be there for half the year of kindergarten until we move. I feel the school lacks any organization or idea of what is going on. They do not keep parents well informed as to what is going on and how the kids are doing. There are a small handful of teachers that are just amazing and care about what the children are learning and not just constantly yelling at the children. I am looking forward to getting my child out of this school to somewhere she can actually get a good education."

    "Having 2 special needs children I find the support of both the school principle and teachers willing to go above and beyond the call of duty for the students. The support for my 'typical ' child is great. I am very glad that we have moved to Mill Creek."

    "I love Mill Creek! My daughter's teachers were very good. They worked well together to make sure the children were meeting or exceeding the standards. The children (including mine) that needed the extra help got it. Mr. Cannon is very visible at the school. He is very open to hearing from parents. Our experience with Mill Creek has been nothing but positive. I highly recommend the school. With the Reading First program the children really have a strong focus on academics. There isn't any sports or other extra-curricular activities. However the PTA this past year hosted many events that encouraged activity outside of the school. The level of parent involvement is very low. In fact it's quite disheartening to see the lack of parents involved."

    "I have come in contact with similar issues concerning this school. I feel that the focus should be more on educating the children and less focus on discipline. When you go to one class the class across the hall are learning something different. So when the 2 or 3 groups come together the children are not on the same level nor do they understand the same things. There is no structure every teacher is doing there own thing and the principal never seems to really be all concerned about our children's education. These children are getting robbed by the school system. These children would learn if it was more challenging for those who needs and want to be challenged. Those that need extra attention then give them that one on one. But to know that in the next 20yrs. These will be incharge of our future. Help our Children to Achieve."
