My two boys (age 4 & 6) have enrolled in Miller Homeschool for aftercare and summer programming. I have been thrilled that my 6 year old begs to go so he can continue gaining fluency in reading, and my 4 year old is beginning to enjoy art. The head teacher is loving, engaging, up for adventures in experiential learning, and clearly is gifted in meeting a child exactly where they are - and inspiring them to take the next steps. I highly recommend this unique and intimate school with a special teacher.

To am beyond pleased with my child's progress since attending Miller homeschool for her kindergarten year 2011-2012. My then five year old learned how to read fluently and above expectation in a after of a couple months. She is a phenomenal speller, and awesome at first grade level mathematics. I would suggest this school to anyone who wans their child to catch up or set their kids up for advancement. Despite the cost, which is reasonable compared to private schooling, I definitely am happy and proud of my decision. This home school is amazing. And it's personal!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
