Millstone school is a good school to go to. I am in 4th grade and I have been here for three years (kindergarten,3rd 4th.) They have nice ativities to do and nice teachers. They have a good music department and gym is really fun but art is okay considering you don't get to do much. Like in third grade from the other school.They moved out kindergarten and moved in 3rd grade! I was the first class to be in 3rd grade!
