In the coming weeks we intend to perform an interview with the prestigious and long establish Mill Creek School, a 30-year old organization for high school students who wish to find a supportive and healthy environment for young adults who find difficulty adapting to many public high schools and emotion/social concerns. Here at Mill Creek School students can immerse themselves into a trusting yet academically stimulating educational setting and find success beyond the books of mainstream education.
The school promotes social, personal and academic growth among its young minds and in it's over three decades of work has garnered rave reviews from the community, its students and numerous alumni. On average there are eight students to every teacher and historically overall classes sizes are small, the current graduating class of 2010 is only 30 seniors.
Working through the home school districts of their active or potential students, parents do have to pay tuition in order for their children to attend, however instead of paying additional local taxes Mill Creek School offers paid reimbursements through the students school district, meaning that struggling families are not wasting their money on local taxes or to move into the local vicinity of the school. This system means that many students that can't afford to attend a private school now have a fighting chance in a usually competitive academic world of secondary education.
