In August 1987, the doors of Millcreek High School opened for the first time. Millcreek was established as a result of the vision and foresight of School Board member, Dr. Sheldon Johnson and Superintendent Steven H. Peterson regarding the need for more alternatives for students who were not succeeding in the traditional high schools.
The first year student enrollment was sixty-three, with services provided by two teachers, a part-time principal, a secretary, and a two-hour per week custodian. The first fourteen years, Millcreek High School was located in the current Washington Historical Society Museum. After outgrowing the ninety year old historical building, the students and staff moved into a new state of the art facility in the fall of 2001. There are no sports, clubs, or dances held at Millcreek High School. The focus is on developing a student's self-worth and helping them accomplish their academic goals.
Over the years, more and more students have reached their academic and personal goals because of the philosophy of the school: every student has exceptional value and can learn. The goal of Millcreek High School is for all students to develop the skills to become lifelong learners, responsible citizens, effective communicators, and employable individuals. Educators have high expectations for every student while striving to meet individual needs. Students leave Millcreek with confidence that they can succeed in whatever they choose.
