The WEB program welcomes 6th graders and challenges 8th graders to develop leadership skills. All 6th graders take a quest class about friendship, family and community as well as a tech class on cyber security and bullying.
Caring, committed teachers, a principal that greets students every morning... what more could you ask for? How about multiple elective choices, lunchtime clubs, award winning music and sports programs. Miller Creek has been a wonderful school for both of my children.
This school is rapidly going downhill. The leadership has changed every year, and the no bullying policy in place does nothing. The teachers send mixed messages and pick favorites. There is drug use and theft, and the teaching style fits very few of the students. Save Miller Creek's students before they fall between the cracks!
My experience at Miller Creek began in 20212/13 with the principal from one of the elementary schools moving to MC, which was fine. In the last 2 years, the new leadership seems weak, and the kids who create the most problems have gotten to the point where they seem like they do whatever they want. Dixie is the most wonderful district, but this middle school is going downhill fast and needs intervention! Bullying, drugs, sexting are all commonplace, yet as a parent I have figured all this out without any notification from the school. The kids who aren't involved are really discouraged and sickened by the atmosphere, and are glad to be moving on. What a sad story about this formerly fantastic middle school. Help MCMS!!!
We just moved to the area and I was terrified of sending my child to a gr 6-8 school in a neighborhood with not much diversity. This school is wonderful and the kids are great (and not as 'entitled' as I thought they would act). The leadership team is doing a great job. The teachers are very responsive and available when the kids need them. They offer a lot of extra things that Public schools generally do not offer. My 6th grader loves it, is being challenged academically and feels very safe.
Miller Creek has inspiring teachers, many excellent 'extras' and an overall environment that gives parents confidence. MC consistently produces county-wide winners in math, spelling, debate - against kids from higher-income districts. The library is wonderful also.
I love that the school holds the students accountable for their actions, thusforth, they go into high school prepared--with materials ready when the bell rings, and armed with good manners. Both the old and the new principal have been outstanding. My only complaint is the English curriculum does not include classic novels traditionally taught to middle school students--they don't even read a Shakespeare sonnet. Therefore, they come to high school unprepared to read, comprehend and analyse literature. They only seem to read historical fiction which just isn't right. Aside from a couple of lazy teachers (every school has then) the teachers at Miller Creek are outstanding.
