    Hi I am a parent of a current 6th grader. I think the teachers are great. The structure has been well for the transition from elementary to middle school. As usual you have bullies and trouble makers identify and put on a merit system three strikes and your out. Way to many fights at the end of school. call in the red hat boys to keep down the fights.

  • (1 year ago)

    This school is on the rise. I have had a great experience here. If you looks at most of the reviews they are pretty old. Since 2010 this school has improved greatly. It's a great choice if you live in Ward 7.

    As a parent of a former student I had a horrible experience with Kelly Miller. There was much chaos within the school no communication from school to the home if they saw problems with the students. The best part about KMMS was the admissions/guidance counselor. She was excellent and helpful. It was downhill from there.

    I am a present parent and I do admit KM has its challenges but over all my child has encountered excellent educators and I'm proud to say that my child will be an future alumni (c/o 2010.)

    I am a former teacher at Kelly Miller and I must say that Kelly Miller is the most chaotic situation that I have yet to witness.
