Millbrae Elementary School District is
located in the city of Millbrae. The community has experienced dramatic
changes in the past five years. Its proximity to freeway or rail and the

the five District schools have received the California Distinguished

1986, 1994, and 2001; and Spring Valley in 1995. Additionally, Taylor
School received the National Blue Ribbon Award in 1996.
Convinced that respect for knowledge will promote lifelong healthy
habits, the highest priority is on helping children acquire a love of
learning. As educational partners, parents want their children to
receive a comprehensive education with support for the enrichment
activities in music art, and physical education. The Millbrae schools
provide a positive and safe learning environment to facilitate the
rigorously rich program available for Millbrae students. In response to
needs of families within the school community After School programs are
available at all of the schools.
A traditional school calendar is established for all of the district’s
children. The months are filled with a richly, rigorous comprehensive
curriculum. The summer months include a variety of activities including
extended experiences for Gifted and Talented students as well as
Literacy and Language Arts and Math support in the summer academies.
