John Mills Academics


Rigorous, standards-based instruction is one part of the academic picture at John Mills Elementary School.

A broad array of support and enrichment programs is another.

What it all adds up to — after six years in our classrooms — is a well-prepared student body ready to take the next step toward success in middle school, high school and beyond.
