Quality individualized education!! The teachers go out of their way to help my children and are constantly communicating their progress online.

Student environment is terrible. Kids are bullied to death and constantly looking for new ways to hurt each other. Parents are either oblivious to it, turn the other cheek and deny that their angel child can do anything wrong, and in some cases encourage this unacceptable behavior. Administration does not do nearly enough to stop it and does not punish the perpetrators with so much as a warning, even for prolonged psychological abuse. Food in the Miller Place School District overall is terrible, and thanks to obscene budget cuts, extracurriculars are near nil compared to other schools on Long Island. The daily psychological abuse I've experienced here has left me with a repressed anger that I still haven't forgotten about even into college. Any parent who cares about their kids' quality of life in school will avoid Miller Place at all costs.

This school is great. Great teachers led by an even better principal. Had a bullying issue and the principal has been right on top of it. Kids love their teachers every year. It's been a great experience!

This school has been nothing but a positive environment for my son. The administration is wonderful as well as the the teachers. I'm very happy my son goes to this district.

School is a living hell. The Mlller Place school district is definitely not what it used to be. The lack of disciplinary action from the administrators is very poor. They don't address any situation that you bring to their attention. The most you'll get is a sly "I'm sorry to hear that." They hide behind standardized testing scores. Not a great district. I moved from Miller Place fairly recently and one of the reasons was because I didn't want my children in the district anymore. If you're considering moving to Miller Place because of the district, I ask you to reconsider your decision.

I hate this school more then I've ever hated anything else in my life. The lack of disciplinary actions is absolutely insane. The way the students relate to eachother is inappropriate and embaressing. I'm in 8th grade and I can't wait to get away from the Miller Place atmosphere in a few months...

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
