Hialeah Gardens Senior High School Reviews

Hialeah Gardens Senior High School is an excellent high school for preparing one's self for the challenges of colleges and universities. The teachers really put their best efforts to make every child succeed in school as well for their future. I also love the programs they have for students to have them standout from the rest of their peers worldwide. AICE, AP, and Honors classes are increasing each year giving the youth many priorities. The only change that I would like to see in the school is replacing a low percentage of the teachers that are not well qualified for teaching, instructing, and giving knowledge to the young generation with high quality professors that are willing to commit to doing just that. Hialeah Gardens Senior High School is one of the best schools in the nation or probably the best in the nation for a student to seek quality education and benefits.
Review Hialeah Gardens Senior High School
I am not liking my experience with Hialeah Gardens High School. Some teachers are phenomenal while others don't teach anything at all. The school is not very diverse, mostly Hispanic. The school overdoes it with college readiness. We are all stressed out. I have personally lost a lot of sleep due to these classes, and I feel like I can't take it anymore. The school has mostly AICE for colkege readiness, and almost no AP or DE. HGHS has every single club, activity, and sport imaginable. There's always security guards and cameras. If you want to change your schedule, the administration may force you to keep the classes that are the most stressful. If not, they would take forever to process your request and act like they're mad to be helping you. The school lunch sucks because portions are only the size of a handful. I am often left feeling hungry because the lunch feels like a snack. The resources are abundant and the facilities are always clean.
All the employees and staff work very hard to follow and keep the health and safety policies at this school. They're motivation comes from the students and their overall care and concern for them. On occasion, we have police officers present at the school during entry and dismissal hours for safety measures. This has helped students feel more safe. We have counselors who are open to helping students deal with bullying or personal safety. Teachers and security guards are very approachable and available to help students with anything because they develop friendly and trustworthy relations with them and other staff members.
