An excellent school district, despite its large student population of 300,000+ students enrolled in the county's schools it has been an amazing experience. I myself have been enrolled in MDCPS my entire school career of 13 years (K-12) and I have nothing but good comments to say about all the schools I've been to. Teachers are the greatest, all school facilities were given renovations that will be completed by the year 2020/2021, and are capable of teaching all students in the district. I have nothing but love for MDCPS, and I hope many of you reading would someday enroll, or suggest our school district to someone you may know to check us out!

improves other schools and cultural organizations it's connected with. A good school is always on and never closed. ... A good school values its teachers and administrators and parents as agents of student success. A good school favors personalized learning over differentiated learning.Friends. I can’t think of anything more luxurious than spending every day with my friends. When you leave school, meeting up with even one friend can take a lot of organising.
Free knowledge. My school was free: it cost me and my parents £0. £0 for English, maths, geography, history, art, and lots of other subjects. What a bargain! Learning can be really expensive when you leave school - especially in the US, where university has now become almost as expensive as buying a little house.
Miami-Dade County Public Schools is an astonishing and impressive school district. It has helped me grow as a person tremendously. The programs that have been intitiated , the amazing teachers that have been employed, and the help they give to their students is above all other districts. They make you feel special and unique as an individual. Although it is beyond amazing, they can work on making sure every student is doing good on an emotional and physical level. It is working to help every student and is thriving in every which way. The system is overall a great one and has done an amazing job of keeping schools safe, effective, and amazing!
