Millikan High School is a very diverse school- many students go there for that reason! Bringing so many students together with unique cultural or economic backgrounds and a wide range of abilities and talents allows others to build connections and learn many things about the people in the world around them. Millikan High has many academic and extracurricular opportunities for students. Our district is especially proud of our Khan Academy partnership that guide and prepare students for AP testing (covered by the district due to a grant!) and SAT prep. With many encouraging teachers/staff, rigorous courses, and extracurriculars, students are able to prosper as individuals in the 4 years they spend at Millikan High School.

Millikan has a lot to offer with their art program, competitive academics, and sports programs! With my experience at Millikan, being there for 3 years has taught me a lot and grew my range of experiences. The teachers are very helpful and want to see you succeed their classes. A lot of my teachers have left a lasting impression on me as a person. They give you unlimited tips, advice, and help with your subjects. I love the accepting environment of Millikan and the atmosphere that ASB/Focus brings to our school, especially during homecoming week/spirit weeks. I am happy at Millikan and I love the unlimited support from students and teachers!
Millikan High School is a great school that offers virtually everything that a young scholar would desire. Everyone, regardless of gender, race, and sexual orientation, are made welcome at this school. It also offers some very helpful academic programs that gear students towards whatever they would like to do in life after obtaining their high school diplomas, whether they would like to go on to a four year university, community college, trade school or straight into a job. The teachers and counselors are typically very accommodating and make an effort to suit all students' needs and quell all concerns. There are tons of clubs and competitive sports that cover interests of all sorts. Overall, Millikan High School has offered me a great high school experience and prepared me very well for furthering my educational career in college.
