What do you love about Millcreek Township Schools?

​Millcreek schools have always been the gold standard for public education in the area. The teachers, programs, extra curricular, sports, special education programs, etc. attracted us to our district. The possibilities are endless for the students and everyone can find something that will help them in the getting the overall education they need to be successful in any field they may choose after high school.

There have been many classes over the years, geometry stands out as a favorite, but maybe it was because of the instructor who made it easy to understand.
