About the School
Millcreek is a "Leader in Me" and Title I school committed to developing the expertise of the professional and para-professional staff to teach reading and other content areas to a high level. We also serve a diverse community, which is one of our school's valuable attributes. Our mission is to empower each other to lead by example in learning and life, and our vision is to create a community where children develop the scholarship for academic achievement and the character to change the world.
Our primary program (K-3) places a heavy emphasis on learning to read and provides for two to three hours of literacy instruction each day. Millcreek also has moved to a more investigative math (Math in Focus) and science curriculum that requires higher-level thinking and writing skills. As a Leader in Me school, Millcreek aims to develop the leadership talent and power in our young people.
