    The school is very clean and modern The teachers are very professional and hard working. The Space program gives the student a great opportunity to challenge themselves. The staff is courteous and the special needs programs are very helpful and caring towards the students.

    Great school and good environment. The staff is professional and nice. The current Principal is very nice and helpful. My kids all have gone here and still do. The Teachers are very helpful and do a great job. All the teachers my children have had so far have been very patient and have done an outstanding job teaching.

    Miles Jones has been a wonderful place for my kids. They have participated in the Space program and have made it into the IB program thanks to his amazing teacher.

    I was very disappointed with the staff at this school. Many carry themselves like they are children/teenagers. There should also be a dress code for the teachers. Didn't want my children exposed to grown women in tight short skirt s with their "parts" all out. There is constant screaming and arguing among the adults and kids. There is no organization or control. Don't be sorry later your kids are your greatest investment they deserve a chance to be in a great school. Don't enroll them here!

    This school is in need of new management. The children are out of control and administration does nothing to control them. The kids literally run around like wild animals yelling and screaming inside of the building. They have no respect for adults and don't follows directions given by the principal.

    My oldest son attending this school from prre-k thru 5th and my youngest son is currently there. I love the teachers the administers and the office staff.

    DON'T GO TO THIS SCHOOL. My son has been assaulted twice (including being strangled). Admin did not punish the child that assaulted him nor did they bother to tell us that he was assaulted. I had to find out from him when we noticed the bruises all over his legs. A letter was sent to the school board ref to this incident. The 2 teachers my child had were awsome (only good thing about the school) there are no sports or activites for the children to do and people wonder why violence is getting out of control. Parents only show up for school functions when there is 'free' stuff to get. There was a seminar done by Ms. Jordan for Bullying and about 20 people showed up. The next month they had some other seminar by the PTA with 'free' stuff and there wasn't even enough room to stand.

    This is one of the best schools I know of. I am happy that my child attend the school.
