Today, Millbrae boasts residents of diverse ethnic, national, and cultural backgrounds. Residents are employed in various industries throughout the Bay Area and children attend one of five public elementary schools, or private schools. The City’s senior citizen community, with the eager generosity of the City’s many service clubs and private donations, recently dedicated an attractive new senior wing within the Millbrae community center. Millbrae’s approach is demarcated by a picturesque new overpass. A small city with global vision, Millbrae proudly nurtures Sister City relationships with La Serena, Chile, Mosta, Malta, and its newest Sister City Kaiping, China.
Millbrae has a reputation for having some of the best schools in the San Francisco Bay Area, despite enduring years of state budget cuts. Parents are actively involved in their children’s scores and school functions.
Millbrae School District oversees four public elementary schools (Meadows, Green Hills, Spring Valley, and Lomita Park) and one middle school (Taylor Middle School, named after the family that owned land along Taylor Boulevard prior to the city being laid out). MSD is state-funded and does not receive local property taxes, and has endured budget cuts from the State since 2007. Parents and community contribute to the Millbrae Education Foundation, a volunteer-run organization that currently pays for all of computer education in the five schools, and music education for every elementary student.
Millbrae has one private school at Saint Dunstan’s, a Catholic church. The school provides education for grades K-8.
Millbrae has one public high school, Mills High School, which is part of the San Mateo Union High School District. Mills High School is the highest-scoring high school, test-wise, in San Mateo County. Mills High School is situated about a block away from the southern border of Millbrae with Burlingame. Although surrounded by land that is part of Millbrae, nearby Capuchino High School is located in San Bruno.
