Editorial Reviews

In the early 1930's, Mae McMillan began tutoring children of winter visitors to Fort Lauderdale. She helped them with assignments so they could return to their home schools with their studies up to date. The high caliber of her teaching soon attracted full-time local students, and in 1934 she founded her school in rented rooms in the old Elks Club Building in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Stimulated by Mrs. McMillan's foresight and dedication, scholastic improvements brought increased enrollment and a pressing need for physical expansion. In 1939, she moved her 100 students to an eight-acre site on East Broward Boulevard and added a boarding department. Mae McMillan believed that her school should do far more than prepare students for their individual advancement. She felt an obligation to the state and the nation to produce future leaders. She believed in giving students an opportunity through extracurricular activities to develop their talents and interests to the fullest. Mae McMillan recently was named a 'Great Flordian' by the state, an honor for which her name is inscribed in the records of the Secretary of State in Tallahassee, along with over thirty others who have contributed in outstanding ways to Florida's success.
