American Senior High School Reviews

American as a whole did the bare minimum students and sometimes below the bare minimum. They fail to focus on the more important things that are needed to properly prepare its students for college. The schools and administrations lacks communication with the student body and has poor time management dealing with requirements needed for graduation or college. The sanitary conditions of the school were a nightmare. Children should not have to share their place of education with rodents, the school should have discretely handled this. American cuts certain grade levels short in a sense to satisfy the senior class. This involves taking money from one class' budget in order to pay for senior activities, which in turn results in underclassmen being under budget and create a chain reaction that grows into a larger issue. This school, the faculty and staff, and the students enrolled have no sense of consideration for their surroundings. I would not recommend this school to anyone I care for.

American Senior Highs School is one of the best high schools in the Miami-Dade Public schools. The staff is great, the students are friendly and there is a great atmosphere here. I encourage parents to send their children to American because the level of education here is spectacular and every teacher wants to see you succeed. I went to this high school my whole high school career and trust me i wouldn't trade this school for any other. Our principle is also one of a kind. He encourages us to be the best student we can be and always tells to keep pushing through because we will be successful in life
American senior high school is a wonderful school. They care about students, they make sure students get the education needed. I was apart of American's Student Council as well I was a cheerleader. American is very active with their students and the staff tries hard to ensure that students are okay physically and mentally. My experience might be different compared to others. I enjoyed my experience not only because I interacted with everyone. American is a very diverse school and they have many students from everywhere.
