- a teacher
This school has a caring and supportive administration,faculty and support staff Teachers are highly trained several of which have achieved their National Board Certification. Some of the teaching staff are former students and some students are the children of staff members. The teachers and staff are committed to providing all students with a quality education in a safe environment. It is common for parents who have transferred their children to other schools only to return to this school. In spite of the budget cuts everyone from the paraprofessionalsl,office staff,teachers,administrators,and support staff ,cafeteria workers and noon aides is committed to do the best they can for the students.
very unhappy with that school my son was there since kinder now he is a second grader took him out of that school because another student punch him the principal did'nt suspend him . SOMETHING ELSE THAT IS NOT RIGHT AT ALL STUDENTS CAN"T SPEAK DURING LUNCH !!!! If they speack during lunch time they get bench and can't play.
My children attended this school for 3 years and the teaching methods are horrible!! I couldnt believe that a child that could'nt even count to 100 was passed to the 1st grade! I transferred my children to a magnet school and the teachers, principal, and staff are far more superior.
This school is huge but it has so much to offer our kids. The focus is always on instruction. The magnet center within the school has seven teachers who are very dedicated. The focus is math, science and technology and is open to anyone who applies. I highly recommend this school.
Great school i went there myself and my children are going there now.They have afterschool programs that help the children with their homework. have summer intersession school too! I recommended this school.
Miles is a bug school with its share of mediocre teachers and excellent teachers. the best way to make sure your child is getting what they need is to get involved! The admins and teachers at this school are extremely receptive to positive, contributing parents. The Magnet center is amazing- every teacher in this section of the school puts in so much effort. The bilingual program is also incredible with high test scores and rigorous academics. Both of these programs have a large amount of accountability between teachers who are working within them. The Principal (Gutierrez) at this school has really pushed the teachers to be their best, to raise scores, and better their practice. This school has potential to be 5 star and parent involvement is the key to your child's success here!
