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!

The teachers at my sisters' school teach with passion and joy! Not only do they make the subject enjoyable, but I also see progress in my sisters, and how they excel beyond the classroom. The overall environment inside the classroom provides the students with a safe and engaging place to express their ideas and learn from others. The Miami-Dade County Public Schools system has made phenomenal improvement with the help of the staff, the parents, and especially the students. Because of the teamwork between them, students are scoring well above what they used to! Overall, Miami-Dade Public Schools helps students go beyond what they think they are capable of, and this is something that all school systems should strive towards! Great job, Miami-Dade County!
Everything was a bit of a mess throughout my years under MDCPS, but we (the students) managed. There was a lot of problems also going on just within my school. But the major problem I've had since elementary has always been the food. MDCPS does not provide good food for the student! Sometimes the food would be rotten or moldy. Even under cooked meat. My vegetarian friends didn't have much of a menu to choose from either. It was pretty bad breakfast and lunch. Sometimes I wouldn't even get lunch! But those years are over for me now. I'm a college student and I will work hard to make sure I eat right and stay healthy. I will work on my studying skills as well.
