Miller Middle School has excellent teachers who care about students and are well versed in their content area. There are all types of students from willing and exception learners to reluctant learners. You will find similar types of students everywhere. Teachers collaborate for the benefit of their students and to deepen content area literacy. We have a very supportive administrative staff and an excellent superintendent set up making San Marcos an ever improving and fantastic district. I believe students who attend Miller get a quality education.

I have had two daughters go to Miller and have been very pleased at the high academic levels in the core classes. The girls have had many out standing teachers and both girls have done very well at the middle school and high school UIL level against schools like West Lake and Alamo Heights. Several of their older friends have gone on to higher degrees at Ivy League schools.

As a teacher, I am entrusted with many students every year(27 to be exact). Miller Middle School teachers and administrators, in the past 4 years have worked very diligently to make every child feel welcome and safe. Everyday, I walk into my classroom with the hope and desire to reach at least one more student than the day before, not only academically but emotionally as well. The culture at Miller is one of acceptance of all children. We strive to work with every student no matter what personal baggage or disablity comes with them. I am proud of this culture. I have had so many students come back and say, "My best years were at Miller." Can't argue with that.

Miller remains a dedicated and caring educational institution that supports and nourishes the young people who come to learn. Miller teachers care about their students, and daily, provide patience, knowledge and love. The support staff offers a strong, safe, and clean environment. Guidance, student oriented, motivates the Administration. All in all, no place is all good, but Miller is darn close!

I have been a teacher at Miller for the past six years and I feel like the entire staff is very supportive of the students and do whatever they can to help them. The school also has an excellent partnership with Texas State with the MathWorks program. The program challenges students while being very hands on.

I have been a teacher in the SMCISD school district for six years. The last four have been at Miller Middle School. I am proud to work for my school!. I have a wonderful bunch of coworkers that truly and honestly care about our students. We work really hard to make the material relevant and interesting to our students. We talk with parents and we appreciate when parents contact us with any concerns they may have. I believe that we have a great camaraderie with the administration, fellow teachers, and our students.

I am proud to say that I have been a teacher at Miller Middle School for over 10 years. I stay because I have a supportive Administration, a great group of colleagues, and the best students in San Marcos. Our teachers work hard every day to ensure the students are being challenged in order to succeed in their lives. Our curriculums are rigorous and our students rise to the challenge. We teach our students to be great citizens and that perseverance is one of the keys to success.

All 3 of my daughters have gone to this school and I have taught here for 14 years. We have had 7 principals during that time and 6 superintendents. Despite all this change, the teachers and staff have always been very student oriented. They believe in building relationships with the kids and each other. Emphasis on testing has increased with time, as it has everywhere else in Texas, but nurturing students is still our priority.

Posted July 10, 2010

Miller changed DRAMATICALLY for the worse during 2009-2010 with new principal and assistant principal in place. Emphasis is student control rather than student education. Teachers simply "teach to the taks", rather than seeing students individual strengths and weaknesses and educating them. If a student needs extra help, you can bet he or she will be in trouble by the end of the day, to prevent the teacher from actually having to help the child by TEACHING.

The faculty is great and the athletics program really gets you in shape for sports, the school has very expierienced coaches that teach you everything you possibly need to know about a sport and get you ready, and they never give up on you.

The dance program at Miller is so great! It gives so many students that have never been exposed to dance the chance to try it out and to be involved with the school. The Miller staff is great and very supportive of its students.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
