It's really terrible. Don't bring your kids here. I used to go here in 7th and 8th grade, my parents took me in 9th to go to a better high school. I did not learn a single thing in my years here; the teachers don't care and nor do the near-criminal students. The majority of students fail, while teachers don't even help. I personally got a 4/4 on all my state exams in 6th grade at park avenue, but started going really downhill when I came here. I was so discouraged even to study, whereas before I was near the top of my class. I feel terrible for my friends who had to stay in this school, even in this district.

Honestly, the Edmund W. Miles Middle School is a horrible school. I am in 7th grade (I just got here from Park Avenue Memorial Elementary) and there are fights everyday, the students are horrible, there are 9th graders which makes the students even MORE hyper, the teachers have no control, we barely learn because of the disruptions in class( students). One kid even broke his neck because there are these little play fights against the 7th and 8th graders that sometimes get serious. A girl was supposed to get 5 days of suspension but she only got 3. ITS A HORRIBLE SCHOOL! TEACHERS ARE LATE HALF OF THE TIME! STUDENTS SKIP CLASS. SOMEONE BROUGHT IN WEED-BROWNIES AND SOME KIDS WERE HIGH DURING CLASS! A kid was drinking in between classes (Locker breaks).

I do like that the teachers seem willing to extend themselves after school hours. I hate that their is no a.c. in the school.

I had the opportunity to work in this school as a substitute teacher and decided that I would never go back. The students are often left unsupervised, especially in the halls at dismissal and arrival times. It is obvious that the school principal and academic dean need to take a more proactive role in the management and supervision of students during unstructured time.

I used to go to Edmund W. Miles Middle and I do not remember it being like that. I loved going there because my teahcers were always trying to help me; Mrs. Rutigliano, Ms. Carrua, Mrs. Fabian etc., and now I'm going to start college at the school I want.

This school, in my opinion doesn't really reach appropriate standards. The teachers don't put in enough effort, half the students here either don't care or are discouraged by they're parents or even teachers. The principal,Mr.Pitterson is trying his best to fix everything but I believe it's going to take a lot more then ' team work' to pull this school to the top where really every middle school should be. I've been going to this school for 3 years now and I'm just disappointed to see that every year it just gets worse. Isn't that the opposite of how it's suppose to be? I'm definitely not looking forward to another year in this school but oh well, I'm going to have to because they're moved the 9th grade down and I have really no other choice but to go here :[

I felt the quality of the academic programs are poor. The teachers are more focused on policing then educating. The parent involvement is limited.

I believe that in order for a school to become successfull it requires a team effort among the leadership, staffs, students, and most all the parents involvement to make sure the students stays on top of their challenge. This is why Edmund W. Miles Middle school has become a successfull school, and my three daughters are in the Honor Roll Society. Thank You!

Under new leadership at the Central and school level , Edmund W. Miles Middle School has demonstrated improved statistical performance. The Middle School is clearly the lynch pin of the district. The H.S. Math A regents results indicate that the graduating 8th grade class was more prepared to manage their academic challenges. Edmund W. Miles MS participates in a NSF grant program and collaborates with Hofstra and Stony Brook Universities. It is apparent that the Middle School and District over the next several years will evolve into a premier Distrcit.
