Millbrook Elementary School Reviews
My daughter attended this school 1-5 grade. She is poorly equipped for middle school & says in Math many of the concepts are foreign to her, though she was in AG program at MEMS. Teachers were texting & totally disconnected during morning carpool. Fifth grade we considered selling our home and moving from the district to get her out of this school. Very disturbing discipline problems with classmates & when I approached the school counseling services, they were apathetic at best. My daughter reported fellow 5th graders drinking, cutting themselves & skipping school, and these activities were deemed "not unusual". For me, that's pretty unusual for 11 year old behavior & I have older children as well so I'm not exactly out of the loop. If knew then what I know now, I would not have sent my daughter to this school.
My daughter attended MEMS 2nd thru 5th grade. Fifth grade discipline problems with the other children were so troubling, we considered MOVING OUT OF THE DISTRICT to avoid sending her to the school. Fifth graders drinking alcohol & cutting themselves,among other things. I visited the school counselor;she was flippant at best, saying this was, and I quote, "not unusual" for 5th graders. Our oldest daughter graduated HS last year, and we never saw anything like it even in HS. "Not unusual"? Really? During morning carpool, the teachers & admin staff texted/stared into their smartphones & seemed generally disengaged, with the exception of the principal & Coach Peters. Pretty unprofessional that the kids were greeted this way each morning. My daughter was AG identified & in the AG instructional program at MEMS, however much of the things that the students are expected to know in 6th grade were concepts my daughter never saw. We weren't impressed by the level of instruction w/ Math last year, and asked for addt'l homework during a teacher conference. Teacher was defensive. Mrs. Bigelow & Mrs. Randolph are outstanding & the most caring, professional teachers at the school.
Its a great school, that is International Baccurlette. They have Spanish, one of the only schools that do in Wake County. They have plenty of Title 1 programs to. The diversity there is great! I recommend my former elementary school!
