Review for The Miller Institute for Learning with Technology, San Carlos, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review has been our E-Rate consultant since the untimely passing of our first Technology Coordinator, Doug Bean. E-Rate was a new and totally unknown federal program with seemingly unlimited potential, but neither Joe Lucente nor Irene Sumida knew exactly how to access the plan to its fullest potential.

Mark Miller and his team at, including his sister Eileen Miller, have provided exceptional service at an exceptionally low cost to first Fenton Avenue Charter School, then Fenton Primary Center (while the school was still a concept without a location or any hope of construction), then Santa Monica Boulevard, immediately upon divestiture, and finally Fenton STEM and Fenton Charter Leadership. For over twenty years, federal funding has been leveraged to the maximum extent to ensure Fenton students have enjoyed high speed Internet access that other schools only hoped for.

The cost for the nearly daily consulting work has been minimal reflecting the commitment of to support its partners to bring the highest level of technology access to schools across California.

Review for The Miller Institute for Learning with Technology, San Carlos, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Miller Institute for Learning with Technology has worked with Fenton Avenue Charter School and the Fenton Primary Center, two charter schools in the Lake View Terrace, a suburb of Los Angeles. The institute has assisted us in writing and receiving approval for E-Rate (Education Rate) plans that allow our schools to provide a level of technology to our 1,450 students far and above anything seen or available at a typical school within our authorizing district (Los Angeles Unified). The Miller Institute is more than knowledgeable,they are true experts in the field of educational technology and their recommendations and insight have allowed our schools to remain competitive and successful, while serving our community well.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my work with the various employees of the Miller Institute. Every member of the Miller Institute is highly professional, accessible and reliable. I highly recommend the organization.
