Miami-Dade County Public Schools Reviews

Miami-Dade County offers its students plenty of opportunities to do great academically and socially. My experience in this county so far has been great! I've met great people and have had excellent teachers who are dedicated to their work. Concerning the college process, as a senior I find a great relief because my English teacher, cap adviser and counselor all do their part to make this process go smoothly. Interactions with the other students aren't a problem either as the school ensures a safe learning environment throughout the course of the day.
Review Miami-Dade County Public Schools
Miami-Dade County Public Schools goes above and beyond to accommodate everyone in it. The teachers are devoted to their students and are always there to help in all situations. There are many clubs so everyone can do something they love! There are also many sports choices. My school (Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High) is very diverse so I can make friends from all over the world. In the state of an emergency, MDCPS makes sure everyone has the resources needed to cope, and gives us time off school to get our lives together. One downside to the system is the food they serve in the cafeteria. I often find myself still hungry after lunch because the food was simply not appetizing enough for me to finish. It is bland and dry. Also, there have been several times where I needed to use the restroom, but there is absolutely to toilet tissue in any of the stalls. Other than that, I definitely recommend MDCPS and I am glad to have been a part of this system for the last twelve years.
Miami-Dade County Public Schools is constantly putting in the maximum effort to see all students succeed, by offering opportunities like Bright Futures. Especially for my school, Miami Arts Studio 6-12, they have shown a tremendous amount of support for my school since it was established. The administrators of the school distract, and even at times the superintendent, Alberto M. Carvalho, come out to the performances and shows at our arts school. They've also donated money to our program, which is greatly appreciated! Our district has a lot of diversity, with African Americans and a variety of different Hispanic/Latino cultures. However, something our district should change is the lunch at our schools. It has never been the best food and it seems it has just gotten worse over time.
