Millis Road elementary opened in the fall of 1961. The first enrollment included 360 students, 12 teachers, a part time librarian, and one principal. The intent of it being built was to relieve overcrowding in the Jamestown district. Even though the school originally had a capacity for 560 students, it at one time served a student body of 792. When the neighboring Pilot Elementary opened in the fall of 1996, the student body decreased to 330. Current enrollment is 515 students. A variety of organizational patterns have been tried at the school, beginning with first through sixth grade, later third through fifth grade and the present pre-k through fifth grade. Millis Road students are participating in seminars lead by teachers and specialists using Paidela techniques and methods. Millis Road is located in District 5 of the Guilford County School System. Our current district 5 board of education member is Mr. Paul Daniels. Millis Road is also represented on the Board of education by At large members, Dr. Sandra Alexander and Dr. Nancy R. Routh.
