Mills College Childrens School Reviews
There's a reason so many children were pulled out of this school this year before the school year even ended. This school is a toxic environment. The head of school has done a fabulous job at running the once peaceful community into the ground. I would never ever send any child I cared for to this school, especially as long as the current head of school is there. What's best for your child is not her top priority. She is really good at covering problems and complaints up to save her butt and to keep HER people on staff. They have a network of people and if you aren't apart of it then plan on your child being targeted. The head of school is as FAKE as one can be. She's been close to being fired before with great reason. I will never forget the horrible experience my child had here and I feel guilty everyday because I'm supposed to be the protector. Little did I know I'd have to protect my child from this school. The hitting and the cursing by the new students in the 2012-13 school year was insane. After several complaints from angry parents whose children were hit and cursed at nothing was changed... And it was always the same kids behaving this way. Note to incoming parents: those same kids stayed & are attending this year. Almost all of the 1st graders either left before June or won't be returning this year. Sad to report it's a horrible and toxic environment.
This school is prefect for the constructivist family! Small class sizes, no emphasis on conformity, and the staff and children all look happy. What a difference from the normal drear of public school.Located on the beautifu Mills College campus, it is perfectly situated for outside or hands on activities and filled with student teachers who are their to learn and develop, and who genuinely want to help your child be the best they can.
