    "Not sure how Mrs. Cowell would be responsible for any child being bullied- we were in her class in Fall 2013 too and i volunteered twice weekly- I never saw bullying nor did I see Mrs. Cowell being too sweet? She is amazing and we were sad with the change in the K schedule that moved us to a new class. Doesn't Mrs. Wisthma teach transitional? Maybe it's a difference in the ages of the childen in the class? My only gripe with the school is that it seems no holidays are celebrated like they are at other schools...I've been told it's up to the principal so not sure how I feel about my son never getting to celebrate holidays with his classmates."

    "To the response below mine, It's funny that you mentioned that. My daughter was in Mrs. Cowell's class. Yes, she is a sweet teacher, but she's too sweet. Everyday, my husband and I would ask her if she made any friends and the response was always no. She only talked about a girl who bullied her and how other kids would laugh at her. Mrs. Cowell would only ask what was wrong. No disciplinary action was taken whatsoever. Everyday, my daughter would come home in a very bad, unpleasant attitude. We had her switched to the morning class and she now has Mrs. Wisthma. The switch was like night and day! She's happy. She's excited to go to school. She loves her teacher and talks about all of her friends. I thank the principal for accommodating to my request to have her switched. However, I would still rather her go to Bernardo Elementary, LR Green, or Charter, where I'm sure they are much more responsive to parents' requests and less tolerant of bullying behavior."

    "My son was bullied 3 times at this school by the same kid. Even after reporting it 3 times and meeting with the principal, nothing was done. We finally pulled my son out of the school. One month after we pulled my son out, one of his old class mates mother contacted us and told us that her son was bullied by the SAME kid. She pulled him out also. In my opinion this school needs to hire a principal that is capable of encouraging an environment where kids are being respected and are safe. Mr. Scott was all talk and no action when it came to my son and apparently his friend. Mrs. Cowell is a sweet teacher and has a genuine love for the kids and what she does, its unfortunate her superior lacks the ability to implement an environment where her hard work pays off."

    "We love Miller! We have been here for over 6 years, since my youngest started kindergarten. I still have two younger ones here. The school is one of the smallest in the district and I think that is a very nice thing. We have a nice sense of community. We love the teachers and the office ladies are the best!"

    "We have two children attending this school. I really like the teachers that they both have - they are very dedicated and overall good people. However, I am not impressed with the administration and have witnessed a number of incidents where teachers yell (at the top of their lungs and very harshy) at the children. Some of the behavior I've seen from adults there is unacceptable and does not demonstrate the behavior we want to see in our children."
