I have four children attending Miller right now. It is a diverse mix of students and staff and gives kids a realistic view of what our society is today. I love it that my children have friends of all backgrounds, Asian, Black, White, Latino, etc.. I also appreciate that that for the past two years they have had a teacher win student of the year. It may not be the newest and have all the bells & whistles some of the other school have but they more make up for it in the staff and educators that they have. Proud that my children are Miller Rockets.
I have two children who attend this school, one in Kindergarten and one in the 1st grade gifted class. I am very pleased with both of the teachers, especially with how involved my daughter s K teacher gets with her students. She has taken her time not only in school, but out of class and even on the weekends to attend special events to connect with her students and parents. If this world had more teachers like her, our children would get a better start to learning. At the beginning of the year my daughter could barely recognize her letters and is now reading short stories. I could never get her to focus at home long enough to learn. And not to leave out my son s teacher, she is so great with him. He s now coming home reading chapter books with hundreds of pages in them and over the year has developed a love of reading and learning. He s always learning new experiments online and his teacher allows him to conduct and explain the experiment in class, helping foster his love of learning. I couldn't have asked for two better teachers s to fit my children s personalities.
My grand nephew attend Miller Elementary. He is in the kindergarten. His 2 teachers are very committed to the education and growth of their students. My grand nephew has excelled in every subject due to the dedication and caring from his teachers. I volunteer in his class occasionally. The teachers make me feel very welcome. Mrs. Goetz and Mrs. Whitehead are to be commended for their hard work. I challenge all parents, grandparents, aunts or uncles to become more involved with their children's education. Teachers can not do it alone
I was very nervous about having my two children attend Miller after reading these reviews. Fortunately, my husband and I took it upon ourselves to contact the Vice Principal of Instruction and discuss our concerns. Both children were placed with wonderful teachers. Principal PK has been friendly and helpful, and there will be a return of a PTO and several after school clubs and activities. Having volunteered in the Media Center, I have seen concern for the children from both staff and teachers throughout the day. I do believe Miller is on the up swing. Instead of complaining about its faults, lets all do something to help this institution give our children the best education it can give.
