I love that my son's teachers and therapists work with us as a team. It is vital that we all work together to help our students achieve their goals. Plus, I love that Miner has a school wide PAWS program that encourages positive behavior and in turn creates positive outcomes! Go Tigers!

They do a great job educating and caring for students of a diverse population. Some people would consider their students difficult to reach let alone educate. But through creativity and love they foster excellence in student.

I think what they do for students in their school is great! They are given each student the care and concern that they need, which they would not get in a regular school setting

Miner serves students with special needs. They are a dedicated staff providing access to a strong curriculum, as well as social development.

I love my school because we provide special education for approximately 105 students with disabilities, who often go without what the 'regular ed' students get without a problem.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
