AB is a Great school anybody who says otherwise doesn't go here or went in a bad time,but the school really has changed.Staff is great they care about students only with the exception of a few.Coaches for any sports program care more about the student excelling in academics first,and if you have a problem you can always talk to them.

As a former student, the principle was never to be seen and some of the counselors treated me as if I were just some 'lost' student that wasn't going to go anywhere. This school felt like it was very divided as opposed to a school like Summit. There were few extracurricular activities, and the ones I was remotely interested in was led by unprofessional teachers who just wanted to facebook everyone. In spite of what the staff thought of me, I graduated (I refused to walk) and am now in university nearly finished with my credentials. I think the school needs a fresh change, establish a sense of unity with the staff and students, and needs to model a school like Summit or like Sequoia middle school which has recently made a positive turn as well.

I attended school for 2 and a half years and the teachers were friendly and helpful, some of them had a nice system, I had trouble at my old school with math, and at the end of the year I was a B+ and A - student.

Definitely agree with the assessment of the dance program posted March 26, 2011. Fantastic program! We also like that the coach for the girls varsity basketball team requires that the varsity players maintain a 3.3 GPA or risk not playing. Much more stringent than other schools that allow their players to skate by with the CIF-minimum. How sad that a few extracurricular programs are the highlight of the school.

School definitely has its challenges but offers some outstanding programs. One of those being the dance program....The dance program is the best in the Inland Empire and also offers a dance conservatory for students who are interested in pursuing dance after high school. The program offers Royal Academy of Dance ballet certification and has strong relationships with several college dance program. The program rivals many performing arts high school dance programs. It has (was) an amazing experience for my student.....he is currently at Cal State Long Beach as a ...... dance major. :)

As someone who went to this school, I will say this is the worst high school ever! There are only a handful of teachers who truly care about their students, a few being Mr. Fraley (A math teacher), Mrs. Jensen (a history teacher) and Ms. Minor (an art teacher). As a future parent I would never let my kids step foot in any of their class'. -Sueann

This school really is the best. Currently as a former student of A.B. Miller, I got to say my 4 years at this school i enjoyed. All i got to say is, join extracircu activities, because it makes your experience more useful and well worth it. Many people who believe this school to be the worst is because their student or experience they had, they didn't take advantage of what this school has to offer. Each student needs to become involve to make this school better. I took ASB, Yearbook, joined Disneyclub. I took a few exciting courses such as Photography, i loved it and learned alot! Stained glass was another best class i took, i enjoyed the class and instrutor! Met alot of teachers that cared. I enjoyed each of their company and miss them alot!

I would definitely recommend A.B. Miller high school as an institution that genuinely cares about the success of it's students. I graduated in 2003 and can confidently say that my experience there was very valuable, as it thoroughly prepared me for a college career. I am currently a pre-med student at a University of California campus, and can honestly say that the top notch faculty, along with the rigorous course work associated with AP courses, prepared me to handle challenging university classwork. The extracurricular activities available at A.B. Miller were abundant, the facilities relatively well taken care of and the competent/knowledgeable faculty made up for what the school lacked in technological resources. I would highly recommend A.B. Miller.

The current highlight of Miller academics is its history programs, which placed students in multiple competetions this year and won. The extracurricular activities are also particularly strong, the dance program is well-known throughout the region, and are many of the sports teams (Lady Rebel softball did very well this season). For those interested, we also have a great astronomy course that takes students out of the classroom and into the outdoors to view the heavens through various telescopic means. Miller has many opportunities for student success. It is worth your while to visit the campus and meet the faculty.

Ab is a pretty cool school, like the teachers are cool and there are some tough courses to take. The extracurricular activities are awesome, especially track and cross country. But there is way too much racial tension now. So it's all about who your friends are. And everyone has their own little groups too. So overall the school is great but I don't like the racial tension because its getting kind of scary. Kids are getting crazy now. But ab is still a cool school.

I went to A.B MIller and graduated in 2003, the school itself is nice, filled with great teachers. the surroundings are nice, i liked looking at the house across the street with the horses. the school has a nice blend of all races not just Hispanic like most people think. their choir program is excellent and overall i think there new approach to learning is great i helps a lot in college. The thing that most people need to know about the school is that the students are number one in this school not like other schools who worry about diciplinary and other thing, don't get me wrong they do dicipline but they don't spend all their time doing that. overall its the best school in Fontana!

I have a daughter and nephew attending A.B. Miller and they both think it is a great school with lots of extra-curricular activities for all children. The best one I enjoy is their NJROTC program the school has great instructors.

Everyone I've talked to realy underestimates and overlooks this school. By far it's the best school in the area. It's very high on education for all the students there. Go and see for yourself and compare it to any school in the area and you will clearly see that this school is great.

The area is nice and quite diverse. The administrators keep non-students off campus and the teachers are receptive to concerned parents. Most parents do not let their kids walk to or from school because of the rural settings so traffic is a mess during the year.

The school in itself is not too bad, it isn't in the best area but the city is developing quickly and the empty lots around the school will soon be filled with brand new housing. As for the last comment, the school is somewhat diverse. It's not that 'if you're not hispanic you don't belong' the caucasian students are welcome in any group many of them do choose to intergrate. The problem is that the caucasian students that do complain feel they are too good to 'hang around' with us. Which forces me to ask, 'if you're too good for us and so high class what are you doing in Fontana?' Honestly we all know this isn't the Ritz.

I'm a former student of Miller. I attended Miller High for 4 yrs. It's a great school, with outstanding teachers, esp. the ROTC instructors. The student has to take advantage of what the school has to offer, which will make their experience there a better one. You just have to apply yourself.

The school is surrounded by abandoned houses and empty fields. Doesn't seem very safe. It is the best school around the area but still not a very good school.Most people say it's diverse, in my opinion.. it's more like if you're not Hispanic, then you don't belong.

I realy like this school for my child because it is a very safe and nice school. In a nice area buming with new housing all around it. It's in the better part of the city. They also have great extracurricular activities. They offer many different courses. The magority of the student population is Hispanic and this school realy is bilingual. Overall it is a good school.
