My school is amazing. My child will be in 4th grade next year and it has been a wonderful experience. The entire staff from the top to the bottom has been nothing but a great example of how a school should be operated. We have wonderful parent participation and I am lucky to be a part of it all and call it home!

What a wonderful learning environment! Teachers are caring and trained. There is a ton of parent involvement and a very welcoming and eager PTA. The principal is visible and willing to help. I am so happy that my children (and I) are a part of such a cozy and fantastic school. Go Roadrunners!!

My children attened Grace MIller for only one school year (unfortunately). However they have set my expectations of what a school should be. Teachers are very involved in helping and making sure students are up to par , Office staff was always at they're best in being informative to parents. I truley loved this school and they're curricular.

The teachers & staff are exceptional, well organized & very attentive to student needs. You could not ask for a better school as far as teachers and staff. The PTA is an entirely different matter. The PTA Presdient seems to have her own agenda, not the schools needs at heart. The PTA President & Vice President seem to be out only for their children, the concerns voiced by many parents. The Vice President will not talk to you unless you are in her 'click' of friends. I always thought of the PTA to be a program to help the school help the students. In prior years the PTA seemed to be more open to comments and suggestions. The last 2 years the more gossip the PTA stirs up the better. Fix the PTA and Grace Miller will be an awesome school.

My child has gone to this school for three years now and I am sad to say that only one year was great. Some of the staff are rude to the children and parents and there is a lot of improper teaching methods being aloud. The cafeteria food is horrible and unhealthy. The star program is very strict and leaves many children to feel bad about themselves. This is not the school I thought it would be.

Grace Miller truly has a huge heart. The principal is not only visible around campus but she is very approachable. This is our family's second year at this school, having transferred in from another state. The office staff and principal answered my questions by the hundred by email and phone even before we completed our move. Once we arrived we were greeted as friends. The school's peace builder program and student peace builder pledge adds to the character of this campus. I have noticed a change for the better in the PTA from last year to this year. Last year despite filling out their volunteer form, I was not asked to help in any way. This year I can attest that those who submitted volunteer sheets have been called and I see many new faces helping around campus. Grace Miller is worthy of your short list!

I feel this is a strong school, but a bit elitest. PTA is not always open to new members or ideas. Not all teachers want parent volunteers and it makes me wonder why. The office staff is very welcoming and helpful.

Grace Miller is a good school with a 'Small Town' feel. They make additional efforts to reach all students - gifted and those in need of additional support. The teachers present a rigorous program and are most are involved in the many family nights that are offered. There are mother/son and father/daughter nights, a talent show, a Halloween get together and an all school holiday program. My children are motivated and enjoy going to school

The fourth grade team at Grace Miller really worked my student, but he moved up to advanced on the state assessments. I am excited by the programs presented in the fifth grade by the team. The teachers are professional and very easy to approach. They encourage parents to help in the classroom and so I've seen care and kindness, knowledge and firmness, and a genuine concern for ALL students in my son's class. Come enjoy the family atmosphere (especially on family fun night).

Dear Parents, Grace Miller is a school small in enrollment, comparatively speaking, but huge in heart! It is a school where teachers and staff create a warm and friendly environment so that all children and parents feel 'at-home.' Parent involvement is a success, I think, because of those feelings. The teachers that taught my children K-3rd were fun & creative. They allowed my children to be themselves while nurturing and educating them to be independent, responsible, caring young people. The current principal is deeply caring of her students and her staff and has been with Grace Miller for a number of years. A majority of which she was a teacher. She will listen to your concerns. She will help to rectify your problems that arise in a very professional manner. I miss Grace Miller dearly, and had we not moved, we would still be there.

Grace Miller is La Verne's best kept secret! It is truly the unsung hero of Bonita Unified. Great staff and programs. Great parental involvement.

My son has attended this school for three years now. The kindergarten program is outstanding. The teachers in Kindergarten team teach and have an excellent system in place. There are some very good teachers at this school. However, I should mention that some teachers are not very friendly and two of them have been disrespectful to other adults. I can mentioned that one of the young teachers yelled her instructions at me. I was surprised by her behavior and damaged the opinion I had about this school. I realised that not every teacher at this school has class. Two of the teachers my son has had have been outstanding. However, there is tension and animosity towards parents.
