Miller Elementary School Reviews
I love this school! We have friends looking to move to Escondido and I have told them they have to move in an area so their child can attend Miller. The teachers and support staff have been wonderful. I feel comfortable with my children's safety on campus and know they have a great learning environment. I especially like that so many of the teachers at Miller have been there for many years. There is not much turnover in teachers, which has given me a sense of commitment and solidarity. I like knowing that my second child will see the same teachers my older child saw.
I have three children at this school who have attended for the last two years. I think the school in general is average. I do not have a lot of confidence in the principal, although he seems to be a fairly nice person. I believe there are some great teachers at this school that really make it a blessing. In particular I LOVE Ms VonEsch, Ms Robertshaw, and Ms Wisma. They are great teachers and really care about the students. There is a lot of participation from the community which also gives a lot of value to the school.
The best Elementary school that Escondido has to offer. I have 3 children who have attended this school and one more to attend in a couple of years. The staff is great and the teachers are awesome. I have absolutely no complaints. Love this school and would definitely recommend it to any parent for their children.
