20 Parent Reviews for Mills Elementary School

This school has great teachers but their front office staff could definitely use some work. They are very rude and in person and on the phone they are very snoddy. I wouldn't want to be a parent that has to interact with them on a daily basis.

Among the more excellent, high achieving primary schools in AISD. Veteran teachers and consistently high test scores. Suffering the same budget crunches as most schools these days. My kids have performed well here and seem highly motivated...

Mills is an excellent school overall. However, some of the faculty and staff don't seem to be responsive to the needs of children who have undiagnosed disabilities, especially disabilities that manifest as behavioral difficulties.

Mills is the best school in SW Austin. How we lucked into being in its boundaries when moving from another city was nothing short of kismet. The professionalism of the administration and the parent involvement are exemplary. Little wonder that 'exemplary' is the rating we get every year. Go Mountain ...  Read more

We removed our son from a neighboring school and placed him in Mills. He is now loved and finally educated at Mills. We have found the staff to be professional yet loving. They don't seem to worry so much about the 'test' as and therefore the quality of education is higher and more individualized. ...  Read more

I can't begin to imagine what the last review was addressing - in fact I question that it is regards to my children's' school at all. The Administration consists of a Caucasian woman, and African-American man, and an Hispanic woman. I think if they lacked diversity training it would severely impact ...  Read more

I removed my child from this school. The administration and faculty are lacking in professionalism and in need of diversity training. Administration want parents to think that their concerns, suggestions and involvement is applauded but you will be set aside and labeled as a difficult parent and child. ...  Read more
