Welcome to McMillin Elementary School!

At McMillin Elementary School, our students are engaged and active thinkers who are able to communicate, innovate, collaborate, and problem-solve. McMillin has a culture of thinking, one that empowers students to want to learn more and to take ownership of their learning. Teachers and students have the expectation and mindset, that one gets smarter through one’s effort, and where challenge and mistakes are embraced as learning opportunities. Group's collective thinking, as well as each individual's thinking, is valued, visible, and actively promoted as part of the regular day-to-day experiences. Students, parents, and teachers work collaboratively to ensure ALL students, including English Language Learners, students with disabilities, and designated target groups, understand where they are, where they are going next, and show measurable growth on the learning progression which is based on CCSS. Learning Progressions will: (1) Communicate expectation to students and to teachers.
