Programs and Services:

Millard West is known for its AP Culture and typically college bound students take at least one AP course before graduating from high school. Millard West offers many Advanced Placement Program (AP) courses. Participating students may choose to take AP exams, or also participate in Millard's dual enrollment program, which gives students concurrent credit at a local university or community college. Students wishing to take AP exams have the opportunity to apply for scholarships to reduce or eliminate the cost, and some teachers may apply for grants to enable their students to take exams for free.

Millard West has distinguished itself in music and theatre, winning awards and representing many All-State performers. The Wildcat band performed in the 2010 Tournament of Roses parade, in Pasadena, California

Millard West has three award winning show choirs, including West In The Groove, Uptown Girls, and Swing Cats.
