Miller Swim School has been in the unique business of teaching swimming for over 60 years. At Miller, our mission is to build a safer community, one family at a time, through swim lessons, water safety education and drowning prevention.
Swimming lessons are one of the best activities to keep a child active while providing them with a valuable set of life skills. Through participating in water activities, students are able to gain self-discipline, coordination, and balance. Studies have also shown that swimming lessons help children grow socially and intellectually.
At Miller Swim School, students are grouped according to ability and comfort in the water. Classes are offered year-round, both morning and evening at our main facility and in the summer at our outdoor satellite pool facilities in Broken Arrow and Owasso. Transportation can be provided with our Miller Bus if needed.
Miller Swim School also offers party packages and open swim times for families and friends to enjoy the pool year-round! Check out our website for a comprehensive list of programs at www.millerswimschool.com and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest news and specials!
300 Aquarium Drive
The Oklahoma Aquarium is the state’s must-see attraction and a valuable educational resource for school groups and families. The Oklahoma Aquarium Education Department offers homeschool days, scout days and many other activities featuring a diverse collection of animals from the world’s oceans, lakes, rivers and streams. Come check out our newest exhibit, The Polynesian Reef—opening September 2018. Visitors will walk into an exotic South Pacific coral reef surrounded by more than 500 colorful tropical fish with approximately 75 different species. Be sure to swim over to Sea Turtle Island, which houses 300-pound loggerhead sea turtles and Caribbean fish. The exhibit can be experienced from three viewing levels and an underwater observation station for children to come face-to-face with the turtles. The largest exhibit is the Siegfried Families Shark Adventure. Strolling through a unique tunnel and dome, you will see the largest bull sharks in an aquarium swimming all around and overhead. While the views are breathtaking, there are also immersive, hands-on opportunities, especially exciting for children. Crawl through the AEP-PSO Extreme Amazon and come face–to–face with aquatic life from under the water’s surface or explore the Kelp Forest and Discovery Caves. Feel the difference between slippery smooth stingrays and sandy sharks in safe touch tanks. Plus, feed stingrays and turtles for a truly interactive experience. The Aquarium is home to more than fins. Watch furry river otters and beavers splash and play in the Hayes Family Ozark Stream. A crashing waterfall and rolling stream with native fish round out the beautiful exhibit replicating a northeastern Oklahoma stream bank.
