Miller Place is a small community where everyone is looking out for each other. The middle school is conveniently located by an ice cream shop which is perfect for an after school refreshment. Because we are a small community, the teachers in the schools get to know each student well and are really there to help each student do their very best. The religious community is wonderful and involved in community events. Miller Place has everything a town could possibly need! From supermarkets to gyms to restaurants to animal hospitals, you'll never have to travel far. One thing that I would like to see changed in this town is adding more diversity to the community. By adding different types of cuisines to the restaurants, this town would be well equipped to suit any ethnicity.

Fairly affluent area in very close proximity to everything you’d need from restaurants to hardware stores to nurseries. As a miller place school district graduate I can say from experience that the school district on a whole is very overrated and quite average. I honestly feel like I was kinda screwed out of a good education because a lot of the teachers didn’t seem to take their jobs too seriously. Don’t get me wrong, there are some teachers that I’ve had whom I’ll remember for the rest of my life but too many just didn’t seem to care. My younger sibling has special needs and could have gone through MP public schools but my mother, a special ed teacher, found alternate schooling knowing that special ed in particular at Miller place is actually quite sub par. For what it’s worth, there is no cultural diversity at all.
I enjoy that Miller Place is a very small town. There are lots of local businesses located in the town and everyone is friendly with each other. The beach is only 5 minutes away, and there are beautiful sunsets/sunrises everywhere. There are lots of job opportunities for aspiring teenagers and a small school where the education is promising.
