Mission Statement / Programmatic Model:
McMillian's First Steps Academy Mission is to give every student a diverse and rigorous education in a safe, steady environment that advances discipline, inspiration, and excellence in learning. The McMillian's team joins the parents and community to assist the students in developing their character, leadership, learning, learning abilities, and service.
Most New Orleans public schools are charter schools, public schools governed by non-profit boards. Each board is given a contract to operate their charter school for a number of years. When the contract is up for renewal, the Orleans Parish School Board or Louisiana Department of Education uses school performance to determine if the contract should be renewed. If the school hasn’t demonstrated acceptable performance, it may close at the end of the school year, or be taken over by a new non-profit board.
This school’s academic performance data and next renewal year as of November 2017 can be found below. For more information on how school performance is measured, click here. For more information on school accountability, click here.Letter Grade: Contact school for more information
