I am an alumni and now a grandparent of a student attending. I love Mills Parole and Mrs. Sue Myers. She is 100 supportive of the students both in the school and outside of the school and the teachers are very caring. My granddaughter is extremely advanced and they take the time to give her extra work so she doesn't get bored. I love that anytime my daughter has a question she can text/email the teacher and get immediate results.
