Our School

Miller Creek Middle School is a community that encourages all its members-students, staff, and parents- to be lifelong learners who embrace a healthy lifestyle, demonstrate compassion and empathy for others, and act with integrity and honesty. It is the goal of this community to provide the tools and resources necessary to foster creative, independent thinkers who will become proud stewards of our world.
 

Location and Community
Miller Creek Middle School is located just outside the city limits of San Rafael, California. It serves the communities of Lucas Valley, Marinwood, and Terra Linda. One of four schools in the Dixie School District, it was originally constructed in 1964. Nestled within the beautiful hills of Marin County, we have Miller Creek running behind the campus, oak and bay trees all around, and the historic Dixie School House at our entrance. We have over 34 classrooms, a gym, performing arts stage, band room, orchestra room, choir room, two computer centers, the famous Creek Cafe, and a state-of-the-art library/media center. Our school receives active and generous support from our parent community, CanDo!, and the Miller Creek Home and School Club.

 

Enrollment
Miller Creek currently serves just over 630 sixth, seventh and eighth grade students. We run a seven period day from 8:00 to 3:00 M,T,Th,F and a shortened day each Wednesday from 8:00 to 2:00. Miller Creek has been recognized as a California Distinguished School four times: 1996, 2001, 2005 and most recently in 2013.

 

Faculty
Currently, Miller Creek is staffed with highly qualified and caring teachers (including a full-time librarian), instructional assistants, administrators, office support personnel, and counselors. District support includes part-time psychologist, nurse, speech therapist, technology coordinator, and more! The entire Dixie District works collaboratively to support continual professional development, improvement, and learning. Each year, district staff attend conferences (local, state and national), research best practices, and implement innovative practices that support student success. 

 

Technology
Miller Creek maintains a wireless campus with over 515 Chromebooks being used by our students daily. Such technology allows us to engage in the two year pilot of a fully digital ELA program that requires 1:1 devices in our ELA classrooms. Well over half of our classrooms are equipped with LCD projectors. Students have access to both the Internet and innovative technological tools. These tools allow our "digital" students to demonstrate learning and creativity, access global information, and communicate with the world. Student information and assessment is managed school-wide using both the Aeries and SchoolLoop software systems.
