About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Milestones Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Milestones Charter School Reviews
Its a great school.
My son is attending this school for last two years and my daughter will be going in Pre-K this year. Teachers are really hardworking and very helpful. Its a great school.
Despite prior reviews the school is called MILESTONES and it is a horrible school.
In the one yr my daughter has gone there they have lost her during school hours, allowed a bully to cut her hair, told us her mother had signed her out already when I went to pick her up (I am her mother) AND the last day of school they tell me she will not be passed onto the 1st grade. Here is my problem, whenever I got progress reports or daily updates all I heard was she is doing great, fantastic, great job! Not once was I told there was a problem and then suddenly it is time for her to transfer to the grade that no longer requires a tuition and she cannot go, coincidence? Sounds like they want money to me, she will be going to public school now, never again will I EVER recommend anybody here.
MILLSTOE IS A GREAT SCHOOL MY TWO KIDS DESTYNEE AND SHAUNMICHAEL WENT THERE.THE TEACHERS ARE VERYGOOD WITH THE KIDS.DONNA IS BEST IN MY BOOK AND MISS ROSIE AND JAMIE ARE HARD TO FINE BETTER TEACHER.THE KIDS THAT GO THERE ARE POLITE THANK TO STAFF AND THE PERSON.WHO SAID THE CHILDREN ARE NOT CHALLENGED IS VERY WRONG.I WISH THAT WE HAD MORE SCHOOL LIKE MILLSTONE.STOP IN AND CHECK OUT THE SCHOOL.YOU WILL BE SUPRISE HOW GOOD IT IS
My three children have attended over many years and unfortunately
the quality of education has diminished. They accept too much late
work, don't hold the students accountable, and tend to ignore
discipline issues. Middle school does not prepare them for high
school. They do not expect the best from students and set the bar
too low. Great for little ones only.
All three of my children have attended Milestones over several years.
Unfortunately, thru the years the quality of education has decreased.
The children are not challenged, and there is a lack of discipline
(especially in the middle school area. The bar is not set high enough
and mediocre work is always accepted. Would not recommend it
for older children.
My two daughters have been going to Milestones for 2 years now and I couldn't be happier. The administration is top notch! The faculty is considered family, showing heart in everything they do. The Principal knows the name of each and every student and she actively involves herself every day in the morning rituals, classrooms, and even play time. They have great diversity in their programs and approaches, and really strive to offer our children a well rounded learning experience in academics, personal harmony, and community! A few of the little things that I really enjoy the most...1) each morning, students of all grades, gathers to say the Pledge of Allegiance and sing America the Beautiful together. What a way to encourage national pride and togetherness. 2) They've included two blocks of yoga per week, teaching students focus, self awareness, and another form of physical fitness. Last but not least, 3)as part of their science and community projects, they have a garden that each student gets to plant in. This is a school that is simply creative, insightful and inviting to it's students, making Milestones easily the best school in the valley!
Milestones is a wonderful school. I have found that the teacher turn over is great and that once the student reaches 7th grade the teachers seem unequipped to prepare the student for high school. I would highly recommend Milestones up to 6th grade but not for Middle School.
THE SCHOOL HAS BEST TEACHERS AND THE KIDS ARE TAUGHT TO LOVE AND RESPECT EACH OTHERS .THE PRINCIPAL CAN TELL YOU EVERY CHILD IN THE SCHOOL. IF YOU HAVE A CHILD ,SENT THEM TO MILESTONE CHARTER SCHOOL. THEY WILL BE BEST SCHOOL
