Millboro Elementary School has served as the elementary school for the eastern section of Bath County since 1970--after the consolidation of the two county high schools. Prior to 1970, the elementary and high schools were housed together.
The present facility was completed in the fall of 1989. It is a spacious, modern facility with fourteen classrooms, a large media center capable of housing 10,000 books and seating 40 students, two computer labs, cafeteria with a seating capacity of 150, a gymnasium (middle school regulation with bleacher seating for 400), art room, music room, conference room, guidance office and room, records room, administrative offices and adequate storage facilities.
The school grounds have been designed with asphalt play areas, grassy play areas, soccer field, playground equipment, tennis court, nature trail, picnic area, ball fields, and adequate parking .
With an average enrollment of 120 students in grades K–7, Millboro Elementary School is staffed with well-trained, experienced teachers and support personnel who strive to instill in each individual a need for self-discipline, physical fitness, and academic excellence. The primary goal of Millboro Elementary School is to prepare the "total" child with the necessary skills--academic, physical, and social--to be successful in high school and to be a contributing young member of the community.
Many programs for the exceptional child have been added to give every child the best possible education. Curricula have been developed in all areas to ensure the implementation of the Virginia Standards of Learning and to ensure that every child of Bath County receives a comparable education.
Millboro Elementary still remains a rural school characterized by community involvement and close school-community relationships. The stability of the community and school in population, composition and value of education make this possible.
