Miller Middle School's new building will include several features that align with the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) standards. CHPS is a nonprofit organization that works to ensure all PK-12 students have access to environments that support learning and wellness. School facilities constructed or renovated using CHPS high performance building criteria are more energy- and water-efficient, and make a difference for students, teachers, and communities. Learn more about our school's CHPS-certified features in the links below.
