The mission of Millbrook Environmental Connections Magnet Elementary is to develop environmentally-minded citizens who will change the world. We believe learning is active, challenging, meaningful, public, and collaborative.
Millbrook is proud to offer the Environmental Connections magnet theme. This specialized Environmental Connections program is built on nature-based learning. It leverages children's innate interest in nature to instill scientific inquiry, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
With daily instruction across all content areas delivered through Millbrook's Big Ideas of Environental Connections, this program offers authentic, hands-on opportunities to investigate and connect with local and global issues outside the school's walls.
At Millbrook, we see nature as an open-ended laboratory that beckons children to collaborate, communicate, create and think critically to make hypotheses and solve problems. Come visit us and see whats happening in the hive!
Millbrook has been named a 2020 National Magnet School of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America, the national association for magnet and theme-based schools.
