    "my 6 yr old daughter in grade 1 is fantastic doing--basically since she herself by hard work is very advanced in reading math writing --just that her teacher is quite encouraging to her--so she quite likes school."

    "As a prior substitute teacher at this school, I am both saddened and appalled at the atmosphere and the administrative staff at Miner. The lesson plans were unstimulating and filled with worksheets. The administrative staff was unresponsive to requests for help and the office staff was often rude. The students were bright, but clearly lacked a positive environment which showed in how they treated the staff and each other. My son was supposed to attend this school and I am so glad I headed the advice to get him into another school."

    "I would say overall the school is okay... Not really nothing to write home about. I've seen better schools and a principal who is available to speak with you when need to be. The staff is not that helpful at times, however, I notice the school lacks the ability to take charge when it comes to disciplining the students. They 'push back' to the parents whenever they can't resolve a problem. Children act out... young children like to test the water and up to you to prove to them you are not a push over. The miner staff does not know how to do that. So they like to tell you your child has problems as way for not dealing with whatever problems they are having at school or just overall in the classroom. There is a lot of 'blame' game going on."

    "The academics taught and teachers are outstanding. I know my child is gaining more than a typical school year. All teachers are very dedicated and approachable. A very high quality public education with a focus of cultural appreciation."
