I had 2 children at Miller and they had a great experience. My youngest did kinder and part of 1st grade before moving and both teachers were great! My other daughter did 3rd, 4th and part of 5th grade before moving and her teachers were wonderful. I loved the teachers and the school staff. My kids did very well there academically. We were sad to go.

My son has been going to this school since kindergarten and he is now in third grade. He has a learning disability and trying to get an IEP is to hard. We have been fighting for two years and still getting no where. His teacher this year is not capable of teaching a child with dyslexia, she not willing to work with the parents and she yells at the students. I spoke with the principal and she is no better than her staff.

My daughter transfefred halfway through the year to Miller. They were so far ahead from her previous school and would not get her any help to catch up. The teacher was very rude not only to my daughter but to me as well. I talked to the teacher many times and still no solution was made. Her last report card said that she has no respect for other people property when I well know that my daughter knows better and is very sweet shy girl that is not capable of that.
