Principal's Message

Hello Miller South Families!!

My name is Carolyn Herstich and I am the Principal at Miller South School for the Visual and Performing Arts. Rick Sims is our new Assistant Principal at Miller South. Together, we are happy to support your STARS shine bright both in academics and the arts.

For the 2020-2021 academic year, the Akron Public School Board has voted for a 100% virtual start to learning. Please make sure your child has a working chromebook and charger so they are ready to engage in their Google classrooms and activities online. If you have a need, please don't hesitate to contact us at the school so we can help.

MISSION STATEMENT

Miller South is a Visual & Performing Arts School where the creative and curious learn to challenge, support, and inspire each other. Our unique environment focuses on the Arts and Academics, empowering students to use innovative skills to flourish as people and professionals.


THEME

After choosing "Anything Can Happen" during the 2019-2020 school year, I think we got more than we bargained for. While we focused on GROWTH MINDSET and GRIT we want to continue positive thinking and all the possibilities for the new school year with our theme:
Be The Change!
Focus for Student Success from the 2020-2021 year Academic: Visible Learning Strategies (CLARITY) in the classroom to increase standard mastery in all content areas Culture/Climate: PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) - to teach our students that their skills, talents and abilities require EFFORT to be successful.


If you have any questions or concerns, we appreciate your communication and support. Please contact our school office, as we are happy to assist you!

Thank you! 

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy!!
Take care,
Carolyn
