Vision Statement

A.B Miller High School in collaboration with its feeder middle schools, the Fontana Unified School District, and the University of California at Riverside, and the local community colleges will work towards:

  1. increasing the performance of all students in the areas of English and math through the existing Fontana Unified School district content standards
  2. to increase the rate at which our students are accepted and attend a four-year college or university.

A.B Miller HS with its partners will continue to plan and implement the following project components:

  1. complete implementation of district standards that were established in the areas of English and math. This will include training regarding the content of the standards and the alignment of instruction to the standards. This will provide uniformity in both instruction and outcomes.
  2. Staff professional development is key in the area of standards implementation. Staff development plans will be articulated and aligned among the partners
  3. An active program of parent information and training. The purpose will be to provide parents with education regarding the standards and the requirements necessary for their children to attend college. This will be sponsored by the local schools and our partner universities
  4. To improve the academic counseling that is already available to our students. The counseling staff at each participating school and the cooperating universities have committed to participating in increased student counseling activities focused on increased college placement.
  5. Greater levels of student support in the areas of tutoring and mentoring will be established to assist in the transition from middle school to high school and high school to college. This will take the form of one on one tutoring programs provided by paid individuals from the universities and the participating schools.
