Posted July 23, 2013

I have had some wonderful experiences as a parent with this school. I have especially had a great deal of support from support teachers for both of my sons. They have the most amazing Autism support teacher who goes above and beyond as a teacher. The IEP teachers are also some of the greatest people I have ever had the pleasure of talking to and dealing with. Any problems that my sons have had with bullies or anything have been handled quickly and properly by the principal and staff.

The teachers at W. L. Miller are outstanding. They go above and beyond to help students learn and develop into creative and intelligent young adults. The tiger paw reward system has greatly improved student behavior.

I think that kid was rude and bratty he shouldn't write bad reviews the site is called Great Schools not Bad Schools It was very mean.


Posted April 26, 2010

Many of the teachers don't even like kids. The children are mean towards each other, calling each other derogatory names and fighting all the time. It feels like more of a business than a school at WLM.

Posted September 10, 2006

W.L. Miller staff dedicate themselve to create a quality learning environment. The quality of academics is top notch. Staff devote a lot of individual instruction to work on the individual needs of each child while meeting expectations set forth by the state. This is a wonderful school for children to become self confident and well educated.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in math and reading, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The PSSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Pennsylvania. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
