    Stated in a December 2012 Board of Directors "Needs Analysis Report" by Cross & Joftus "Observers noted one school Miller Park Elementary in which academic rigor was present consistently throughout the school. At this high-poverty elementary school which could be considered a model for the district the academic program included a comprehensive writing program high levels of student engagement were found in most every classroom paraprofessionals were engaged in instructional delivery and appeared to be highly skilled and there was evidence of consistent high-quality instruction across and among the classrooms."

    All 5 of my children attend Miller Park and I wouldn't have them anywhere else! I have two in 6th grade one in 5th one in 3rd grade and my youngest is in 2nd grade. We don't live in the best neighbor hood but I know my kids are always safe and learning at Miller Park. My two oldest have been going there since 1st grade and they love it! Every school has its problems but the Miller Park staff and families always stick together to get things resolved! Any problem I have had I always get it quickly resolved and followed up to make sure my kids and I are happy. GREAT teachers and a WONDERFUL principal who always put our kids first and always looking for new ways to keep our kids on the right track and award them for being on time on task and on a mission! They are in it to win it!

    You cannot find a more committed staff led by a dynamic principal who takes caring to the next level and beyond. Our parent participation is growing every year. This is a school on the move!

    My older children (1st and K at the time) attended this school and adored it. The staff was excellent and they couldn't have asked for better teachers.
