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!

As a student that has been to more than one school in this county I can honestly say that Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS) is a school district that ensures proper preparation for students as they go on to reach the next tier in their life. I'm more than fortunate to have been in such a honorable school district for more than 12 years. MDCPS is a county filled with schools that are adamant when it comes to the safety, academics, and life accomplishments of their students. These aren't even half of the reasons I enjoyed being a student in Miami-Dade County Public Schools. I'm thankful for the opportunity as I further my education next fall at a prestigious university. Thank you MDCPS for all that you've done!
I was diagnosed with epilepsy in high school. When I graduated and began my college career, I was introduced to many great resources and assistance programs for individuals with disabilities, including The WOW Center, The Access Program, Vocational Rehab, STS Services, and more! I have been nothing more than motivated to go to school. Even if it takes me longer time to graduate than others.
