Moved my kids here from a great public elementary school. Millwood exceeded our expectations. No SOLs or teaching to the test. The school seems focused on critical thinking, character development and showing children how to be a friend to all. This school is a gem-- a gift we have given our family.

My gifted student was struggling in a "great" public school in the gifted education program. The problem was the class was too overcrowded, the teachers overworked, and they could only teach to the middle. Switching her to Millwood is the greatest thing we have ever done. They recognize and appreciate her gifts and support her struggles. She has excelled in ways that were never possible in public school. They really teach to each child as an individual and help each achieve their best. The teachers are patient but challenging and really work as a team with the student and parents. The Head of School has amazing vision and challenges her staff to do better each year. Millwood is everything you would hope for your child's education in school and in life.
