9 Parent Reviews for Milne Grove Elementary School

This is a good school. We live in district 91 specifically for this school. I am a college professor and I know what I am talking about. There are a lot of lower income families in the district and the school does a good job in spite of poor parental involvement.

government education is one size fits all . the kids who need extra attention get the minimum, while the advanced kids get bored. it is up to the parents to supplement their child's education. trusting state run schools to educate our most valuable asset is silly. why do you think private schools do ...  Read more

I feel this school has a "one size fits all" education policy. My child is advanced and is forced to be bored and crawl under the teacher's level of expectation daily.

I am really happy with this school. We just moved to the area this summer, so this is my (twin)3rd graders' first year here. Their grades have improved, they have made lots of friends, and they actually enjoy going to school, which they did not at their last school in Orland. The only complaint I have ...  Read more

I have found this school to be good in some areas and weak in others. I feel like my child has learned quite a bit this year, but I am dissatisfied with the way they learned. Their teacher has told the kids that school is not supposed to be fun. She has loaded them up with an excessive amount of homework ...  Read more
