Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Mill Creek uses research-based team teaching. Students also have choice to explore a variety of programs through our elective program, which offers over 50 courses students may choose from. We use Carnegie Turning Points and Breaking Ranks in the Middle recommendations to:

  • Create small communities
  • Teach a core academic program
  • Ensure success for all students
  • Empower teachers and administrators
  • Staff middle grade schools with teachers who are experts
  • Improve academic performance through fostering health and fitness
  • Reengage families
  • Connect schools with communities

Our primary goal is to provide an academically challenging program while addressing the social and emotional needs of all children. Staff strive to give each child a sense of belonging as students navigate the adolescent years.
