Miller Middle School Ratings & Reviews

My son attended this school for 6th--8th grade. He had some wonderful teachers while there, but I don't believe they were supported by the administration. Many electives were cut during my son's time there... now ever orchestra is like an after school club. Interesting activities that made students more involved learners were eliminated, forgotten about, or not encouraged--like Science fair, geography bees, etc. Going outside for recess is discouraged in favor of longer periods of study with a focus on teaching to the test, neglecting students emotional and physical needs. It is difficult to imagine wanting to send my younger child to this school now.

I'm a student at MMS and in the past year horrible things have happened.With the change with principles was very upsetting,Mr.Smith barely did anything leaving all the work on the shoulders of the staff.The rules became stricter putting even more work on the other staff's shoulders. This caused lots of bullying that the staff couldn't control so they just pain ignored it. With the budget cuts faculty didn't care for the condition of the school anymore.Occasionally I'd walk down the 8th grade hall and every time I saw locker doors only hanging on by rust and the locks themselves.If you complain to a teacher they would bark at you and say that it's perfectly fine! I'm not the only student who thinks the same things.Now I have one more year at this horrible lifeless school.

Our entire experience with the Durango School System was a negative one but the experience with Miller tops the list. My son was a sixth grader who experienced a high degree of bullying and no support from the school staff. The phrase "boys will be boys" was heard so much that it became something of a bad joke. Groups of kids ran unmonitered from the school grounds to form "fight clubs" that harrassed children on the way home. In addition my son who had received academic support throughout his elementary school years was lost in the system despite several meetings with teachers. At no point were any of his needs met.

Miller has been a good experience for my son. The social environment wasn't ideal but the teachers are fantastic and the quantity of extra-curricular activities allows for just about any child to find something to get involved in.

I love how they keep the school clean and how nice the teachers are.
