We are new to Miller School, but my child has been immediately accepted and valued by the Miller School community. We are seeing confidence grow weekly.

My son went to Miller School for 7yrs. Best investment my wife and I have ever made. When he graduated for miller he was accepted to every college he applied except one. Some of the schools were Ga Tech, Univ. Wisc., VA Tech., were just a few. He deceided on Uva. I would strongly suggest your child to attend Miller School.

Miller School has been an amazing experience for my daughter. She needed a smaller school with smaller classes with teachers who really care about her performance both in and out of the classroom. She definately gets that at Miller! I just wish more people knew about the 'jewel' I have found in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. My daughter is thriving there. It is a complete environment for learning and for life!

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.
