This is by far the best school my children have ever attended. The staff is awesome and take the time to get to know the families. There are many family activities throughout the year. For example, in January they have a family skate night at great skate. All of the students get in and skate for free. I have only had to complain once about a bully issue and the school took care of it right away. My kids grades are all a's & b's and if they fall behind the teachers help them get caught up. This school has a great math and reading program.

RIchard E. Miller Elementary School in North Phoenix has employees are not only do their written job, but also the jobs of mentor and parent. The teachers seem genuinely concerned about their students and their academic and emotional development. My daughter's teacher, for example, advises me about ways to have her focus better when she reads.

I just moved to Phoenix from Wisconsin and was so worried about finding an adequate school and one that equaled their excellent school in Milwaukee, WI, and I am very happy with R.E. Miller. My children were so happy their first day of school and we are all satisfied.

Miller is a wonderful school with a great sense of community. The teachers are wonderful and my children get a fantastic education and have friendships that will last a lifetime. I have been at Miller for 6 years now and would never consider going anywhere else.

My Child has attended RE Miller since Pre-School, and will enter the 4th grade in August. All of his teachers have been supportive and encouraging, and I have no expectations of enrolling him elsewhere. He is excelling academically as well as socially, and even though there have been a few spatters of not so spectacular experiences, this school is still my #1 choice.

My child tells me of consistent disruptive and violent behavior in her classroom. My impression is lack of discipline and control being administered by her teacher. My child has been victim of bullies and has been punched, slapped and shoved during the last two months of her enrollment. I have brought this to the attention of the school 3 times and it is continuing. I am moving to another school district this summer.

All of our children have received an excellent education at Richard. E. Miller. My oldest daughter is currently at University of Arizona majoring in journalism, my 18 year old daughter is headed off to Northern Arizona University to become a music teacher, my oldest son, a junior at Sunnyslope High School is our technical guru and my youngest is still at REM in the 6th grade. All of our children blossomed at REM, they were taught, encouraged and coached by REM's dedicated teachers and staff. They were/are in an excellent enrichment program called Project Potential that gave them skills to excell in high school and beyond. I enjoyed volunteering in the classroom, participate on the site council and be involved with an active PTO with hundreds of other involved and caring parents. Being part of the REM family for the past 17 years has enriched our lives.

We are in our third year at this school and we are still extremely pleased. The principal is outstanding by knowing just about everyone on a first name basis. The principal truly cares as she walks thru the campus and smiles and provides leadership. Most of the teachers are seasoned educators with years of experience under their belt. The teachers with more experience often reach out to help those with less experience. The diversity is a great reflection of our community. There is a great focus on helping kids with special needs, the gifted and those who need extra help. Shop the school--- spend one hour with the principal and you'll be sold.

This school has really caring teachers and a caring principal. I think the student population is diverse and mixed, which exposes my child to different backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses. We love it here.

The school has a good teacher-to-child ration and the teachers seem to care. Many teachers have been there 10 years or more. The principal has an open-door policy as well

Good school but after school program is lacking.

The principal has a wonderful 'open door' policy. I felt she was always available, really listened to my requests and helped with positive suggestions. My son's first grade teacher was excellent! We could not have asked for a better fit. I believe my child is safe at this school, is known by other teachers and not simply another child in the midst of a large institution.

We moved here from Illinois and my son started the second semester in Kinder. I am impressed with the after-school, summer, and parenting programs that were offered. The principal has an open door policy and all the staff is very friendly. However, after volunteering 1 hour a week for a few months, I realized that my son was not being challenged and the classroom setting was more like a pre-school environment than academic preparation. We are ending the year now and I expressed my concerns that there were numerous kids who could not even read 'sight' words. The reaction seems to be that maybe my expectations are too high. After talking with more parents, they assured me that the R.E. Miller experience like any school really depends on the teacher. My advice would be to ask lots of questions and most of all, volunteer in the classroom.
