I would not recommend sending your child to this school. They don't provide books for certain core subjects for the children to take home to complete homework; but yet they have homework that the book provides information/answers for; so needless to say homework can be very difficult. Also if your child doesn't provide "A" work to certain teachers, they either recieve a incomplete or a very low score; which in return doesn't inspire the child to want to perform. Can't wait to leave this terrible school......so many bad apples, will definately spoil the bunch!!!
Miller Grove Middle is not the best school, however, the principal is reaching out to the parents, and the community to improve the school image which is a great initiative. At the same token you have some teachers that are not supporting the investment which is the students, Some of the teachers of course need to go ahead in retired. They taking their frustrations on the students instead of the county. If you really don't have no other options just make sure you do classroom observation.
This school does not offer a environment conducive for learning or teaching. The average class size is 32-35. The students are academically low and this lack of intelligence is manifested in their behavior. The administrative team operates on a fear of "losing my job" which shows in their lack of discipline and support for teachers. If you have no choice but to send your child here, please make sure to take the time to visit the classes and teachers during instructional time at least once a month.
I am a proud parent of two students at Miller Grove Middle School. The teachers there have performed above and beyond the call of duty in order to get the students up to par academically. Having experienced their teaching techniques has made me happy that I ignored the negative reviews. The teachers have to put up with alot of poor behaviour and there is so much and no more that they can do!
This middle school is the WORST middle school in Dekalb County that you could send your child to. The teachers here are unprofessional and half of the teachers here are very young and do not care about anything but a paycheck. I hate that my child had the experience of attending this middle school and I am making sure that my youngest child does not have to experience the issues that I have had with this school. Almost every child that attends here have low grades, if your child came in the door with a decent grade point average, if they attend this school there average will drop.
This school is one of the worst. The children behave badly and they are well below grade level. The staff is stressed out and over worked...not a good recipe for the success of the children.
I attented Miller Grove Middle School in grade 6. It was my first and final year. The teachers were terrible, the school was infested with ANTS, and the administrative team was lazy. I will not be attending this school ever again.
I am very disappointed with the counseling staff and teachers at Middle Grove Middle School. I have been trying to get my som tested for a learning disability since the beginning of the school year. Needless to say, he has not been tested and school is almost out. In additon, homework is not given daily which is bad for my child. If homework is not given daily, how can the child reinforce what is being taught by the teacher. My child will not attend this school next year. This is his first and final year at this school
I was displeased with my child's expeience there. My child took advanced classes and the 3/5 of her teachers were lazy and did not challenge the students. The principal and other adminstrators are passive and come off as nonchalant. Needless to stay,my child is no longer there.
The school is very old but the teachers try to teach them something even though some children don't care
i attended miller grove 7th and 8th grade year. i am now in the 11th grade. i remeber the school being well organized and discipline. when i was giong there it was only about 3 teachers who showed signs of hostily. the teachers helped you with your work with your work and overall the school was great. everybody knew everybody. we took trips to the holocaust museum to learn more about it. but like i expressed while i was at miller grove the school was excellent. teachers constantly reached out to the students also for problems within themselves and those are the knid of teachers we need at all schools. the kind of principals and teachers who doesnt care about the money but furthuring the children education.
i hate it i hate it i hate it. The school is a old that needs to be rebuild and the bathrooms are messed up. the children are disrepectful to the teachers
I totally disagree with the school's policy of not providing homework nightly for the children. The work cannot be reinforced if homework is not given. I don't like my child having to go to Saturday school to do what should be done through the week! However, Saturday school is necessary because the work needs to be reinforced. I just believe if it was given nightly it would accomplish much more than the Saturday school. Thanks!
This is my daughter's first year there. I can say that I am happy with the school the teacher I must say are very Informative. They alway keep a open end. Even though my daughter is not doing her best the teachers and school is not at fault. I am a Parent that dont pass the buck and I know my child sometime play or talk too much. As far as I know her teacher and the school is the best I give Miller Grover 10 thumbs up Go Miller Grove...... :o)
my child has been a student at miller grove for 3 years and I have not been impressed. some of the stuff that my child turns in and makes an 'A' on, I would not accept myself!! The band is a joke. you pay your money for an instrument and uniforms and the teacher does not make it a requirement for them to participate in concerts,etc. My son is an 'A' student, but is not pushed or motivated to excel. This school is no longer a magnet school and I can see why. My home has not sold in 2 yrs, but we are getting out of Dekalb regardless.
When I think of miller grove I think of teachers who don't care enough about students, horrible bathrooms, nasty lunches, student's who cause to much drama, and a principal that's not involved enough. They can improve. However, there are bright and intelligent students that come from this school. But why go through the drama for three years?
I am very disappointed with the Academic Program my child is receiving at Miller Grove Middle. Parents are not informed in a timely matter about the progress of child. Their disciplinary tatics are harmful to children. Making a child carry all of their books from class to class. WE all know how heavy books are, and to carry all of them on their back all day is a bit much! That is a case waiting to happen. Teachers fallen asleep during class. Teachers aren't properly prepared for parent/teacher conferences. This is my childs 1st and last year attending this school. This is not a MAGNET school, HOW??
This school is a cool a fun school were your kids will learn and have the fun in a good way at the same time not just learn. Your kids can can receive awards just like me a student of miller grove middle school who received the principle awards and a student who received a document to represent my country in the different countries of this world so I can say miller grove middle is a very good school to send your children or child to make sure they get a very very good education from a fun and smart environment for kids and this school wills prove a very very very very very very good school if you enrol your kids or kid to this school.
I've been disappointed with the quality of education and the attentiveness of the teachers.
