Experience the power of public education.
Welcome to the Galaxy home of the Mills University Studies High School Comets. We approach the 2016-2017 school year with great anticipation because we look forward to implementing strategies and differentiated instruction that will impact students' learning. We believe that it is very important to continue to build relationships that foster a positive culture for teachers and students to thrive. It is truly a great time to be a Comet. We have new staff. Facilities improvements are underway for the football stadium and baseballl field. The vision for the year is R.E.A.C.H. (Reach our students, Engage our students, Awareness of their needs, Connect with students, and give a Hand). We will R.E.A.C.H. students and attain our academic goals. We will work together with students, parents, staff, and community members to ensure that we focus on the needs of our young people. Our priority is teaching and learning. Parents, ensure that your students read and adhere to expectations so that a safe and orderly school environment is fostered. All students shall wear school IDs during the school day. Visitors must check in with the front office staff and show identification.
