What can i say about millers point......well nothing good thats for sure! Last year we moved here from MI. and i tried to enroll my special needs daughter with 3 1/2 months of school left and was given the run around by the staff for the whole time as a result my already challenged 1st grader missed the whole 3 1/2 months! This year i enrolled both my children and was only mildly shocked when i went to meet the teachers night my son was assigned a class and yep not my daughter yet again! It took weeks to have the ARD testing done. The office staff have been rude even going so far as rolling thier eyes when i walk into the office and make comments to each other under thier breath....My son has been made to walk laps instead of recess period due to other children talking in the lunch room! There is no talking at lunch, must walk with hands clasped behind them when in hallways, students have to walk laps if thier work isn't finished in given time limits, And students lose recess time and must attend study periods if grades as a whole class on tests are below what the teachers want them to be! Mass punishment should not be utilized in an elementary school ever! This school is horrible!

The experience I have had with this school has become quite a struggle. My son has some difficulties learning and we requested testing that could only occur in the third grade. Needless to say the testing was not done til mid year his 4th grade year. The staff always seem distracted when I went to pick him up for doctor or dentists appointment. I have been actively involved with the school since his first grade year he will be in 5th grade next year and not one staff member can remember my name even though I attend all the functions. Highly disappointed with cafeteria staff as well.
