Miller High School & Metro School of Design Reviews

The Metro school program is challenging and a great opportunity to help students grow and expand their understanding in the fine arts. It teaches students to cooperate and think critically and the use of project based learning should be expanded to all schools. My experience at Miller was just as exceptional as my experience at Metro elementary. The faculty and staff were kind and welcoming and the academic field was challenging, competitive, and innovative.

Roy Miller High School is an amazing school. The teachers and staff are so friendly, and helpful. I like the fact that many different races of students attend this school, and the diversity. The teachers are great at explaining things if you do not understand, and will take the time to stay after school to help students in tutorials if needed. The sports are great and are very exciting to watch. I feel very safe on this campus, because there are many security cameras, and officers around. I also love that the counselors take the time to listen to your concerns, and help you get ready for college. I feel like the only thing that I would change about this school would be the food that is served.
This is a very small school where everybody knows everybody. You are more than just a number to the staff. The school offers more arts classes such as fine art, music and theater not offered at other schools. Everyone gets to participate in sports and clubs. There's not much competition to get on to teams and everyone is encouraged to try. The school is currently undergoing construction which will make it even better. Included in the renovations are an updated entrance, an additional gym and more computer labs. The new principal is very involved in getting to know the students to make sure everyone succeeds after graduation.
