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.

Attending Roy Miller High school has been the greatest decision I’ve made so far in my lifetime. Not only is Miller a great school of academics but also has an amazing arts program. I attend Roy Miller because of the Metro Program. The Metro program provides the most elite students with college readiness courses and prepares them for the outside world and what is to come. The Metro program gives me the opportunity to also show the outside world what I am capable of, for example I participate in many extra curricular activities and also participate in sports and music classes that Miller has to offer. Wha I love most about Roy Miller is that we are one big family, “Once a Buc...Always a Buc”.
The Miller High School is generally bland when compared to other schools and falls short on many differing levels. Teachers teach very thoroughly but, their teachings fall onto deaf ears as many students there just do not care. The school has many college readiness programs and is intent on keeping those who want to go to college inspired.
