Miami-Dade County Public Schools Reviews

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.
Review Miami-Dade County Public Schools
Throughout my entire academic career I've been apart of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools program. Starting from elementary school grounds at Edison Park Elementary to my graduating day of high school at one of the most prestigious schools in the MDCPS circuit, Design and Architecture Senior High! As the years have rolled on I was able to see the change and adaptation of the schools, the faculty, the learning system and much more. As a proud alumni of the MDCPS system I'm working diligently and ambitiously on making my story a story that can be translated to the next child who has grew up in the same Miami-Dade County neighboring-hoods as I.
Hello Niche Users, my overall experience with Miami-Dade County Public Schools has been just phenomenal. The academics were really broken down to each students needs. I went to American Senior High School for three and half years and I enjoyed my experience there. The teachers were spectacular and really prepared us for real life situations. The schools culture really brought everyone together. We learned to reach beyond our highest potential. I truly love it here! I wish to see more parent involvement. I always hoped for more parents to come out to the events and show lots of support.
