    Terrible school teachers don't communicate with parents and bad mouth students. Phone calls from parents go ignored. They turn a students into failing students.

  • (5 years ago)

    Does not communicate with students family. No help until student is close to or failing..Constant teasing/harrasing from other students with nothing being done about it after bringing to attention of principal/vice principal.

    I am a parent of a 6th grader. Overall my experience in the kingston school district has been lousy! the academics are well below where they should be. It is now almost feb. (Half of the school year is now officially over) and my son has not written 1 report yet this year. Honestly he has not written a report since the 3rd grade when he attended school in dutchess county. The basics are not being covered. I am very concerned about my sons academic future. How will he be able to compete with other students to get into college with the lack of academics being taught in the kingston city school district!

    My daughter is in her third year at Miller; to say I am satisfied is an understatement. The faculty is involved and works extremely hard to make learning fun the office/guidance staff is more than helpful and the principal is as hands on as they come. The communication between parent and teacher is excellent. This is a grade A school in my book. Kudos Miller; for a job well done day in and day out. S.Whalen
