They have regular acknowledgment of the "Miller Mustang" values through morning announcements and students getting to sit at a special lunch table in the cafeteria if they were nominated for exemplifying these values. As a result, I see students rushing to be the one to hold the door open for each other, picking up trash, etc.
We moved into the area in 2015 and have heard the history of Miller doing poorly in ratings in past years, but we were hopeful with new leadership that it would be a successful start for our kindergartener and it has been great! The principal is spoken of highly by parents and staff for her leadership and involvement. The school has partnerships in the community that help sponsor a free family night once a month that includes a learning activity (math night, science night, zumba, etc) and free family style dinner that allows parents to connect with others at the school while eating in the cafeteria. Miller is a Title 1 campus and I see them utilizing their resources to really maximize the student learning experience. They have substantial aide support for each of the teachers. Third graders get tablets to learn on. Teachers are sponsoring talent shows and performances after hours to engage students and involve families. My kindergartener has learned so much in the classroom and we are given regular feedback through the teacher.
As a grandparent and child care provider for my Granddaughter I have had regular contact with the school. The teachers and office personel have always been very helpful, as well as the bus drivers. I do wish that this site would provide a school calender as well as a lunch menu. If they are here I can't find them.
