About Our School
Welcome to Doris Miller Elementary School! We proudly serve students from military housing and other areas in the Tierrasanta/Murphy Canyon community. A few nonresident students attend through our district’s School Choice or special education programs. The dedicated staff in the Miller Elementary learning community places great emphasis on ensuring all students will leave Miller with the skills, motivation, and curiosity to succeed in middle and high school, as well as in their college and career choices. The Miller Way (respectful, responsible, and safety) is modeled and practiced by our staff and students. This school wide system of positive behavior interventions and supports fosters character and life skills. Miller has been approved as an AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) school for all grades. All our teachers participate in regular professional development and collaborative planning focused on improving instruction and learning for all students. Highlights of the past years include being recognized as a California Distinguished School, continuation of the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program, a comprehensive special education program, the integration of technology into every classroom, literacy and mathematics intervention support, instrumental music, PrimeTime Extended Day Program, Blessings in a Backpack program, FACES Grant (United Way), and the Operation Learn and Thrive grant from the Department of Defense.
As a result of the high success we have achieved in serving our students at all levels, Miller was selected to participate in the Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS). This program supports teachers so they are able to meet the needs of all students in their classrooms. Inclusion in this program is a direct response to Miller increasing test scores across the board for all students. Miller also broke ground on our whole campus modernization, and we began implementation of a new science/technology program, Project Lead the Way.
