School Reviews

Sadly, this school put my child with special needs in danger and then abandoned her. The problem at Miles wasn't the teachers, the problem is poor resources and ineffective and inflexible administration. The district will try to get out of paying anything they can for students with special needs. They had the data from the school showing she clearly needed aide support but they still would not provide it due to the cost. My 5-year-old got away from her teacher who was in charge of a whole class and ran into a busy street. Then when school went to online only in March 2020 and my child could not learn that way, admin just gave up on her. They would not bring her in for tutoring or any services, even though her special ed teacher recognized that she could not learn online and wanted to teach her in person, admin refused. The school has remained shuttered for an entire year now. I feel terribly for any students stuck in TUSD who needed in person education and have lost out on so much.
