My children went to Miller for and I loved the teachers, my daughter went there for 4 years and my sons for 2. The only issue I had was with the front office receptionist, talk about the most disrespectful lady I have ever met, I think she needs to retire, also the principal was so stuck on herself and not there for the children. She never liked to write up the children for doing wrong because she was afraid her ratings for the school would go down.

I feel that this school is very good. They have very caring Teachers who help the kids learn. I have had nothing but good views on this school. The family nights once a month have been very enjoyable for the kids to do with there parents. I have a Daughter in Jr high who went to this school and going to this School had really helped her to Advance in her reading. A special Thanks to Mr. Schroeder and Mrs Gamaney they really helped her in that area of School.
