Hialeah Gardens High School is an excellent school in all aspects-- the school offers a multitude of programs for students to use to their advantage, allowing them to take classes that can substitute college courses (if the tests are passed). This is seen in the long list of AP and AICE courses the school offers, all of them being taught by teachers that are more than suitable for the subjects. Dual enrollment is also offered during the school day and after school. The teachers are wonderful and are very helpful; they genuinely care for the students there. There is a great variety of clubs offered for students to participate in, one of my favorites being band. The very successful club has reached state recognition, being among the 5 top bands in Florida in the 2017 year in its category! To conclude, I highly recommend this school to anyone that is looking to advance in their academic careers and to be in a healthy ambient created by the students and staff in that school.

This high school has opened so many doors for me which have lead me to only amazing opportunities, that are very hard to find at any other high school. Hialeah Gardens Senior High is very respected and has many academic programs to offer from Hospitality & Tourism, Education, Law, Engineering, Information Technology, and so much more! Additionally, students can graduate with many certification, take extracurricular courses, and college dual enrollment classes.
Transitioning into high school is scary in within itself. The stigma of social beliefs and popularity-related standards may seem scary to any scrawny 8th-grade student. But the atmosphere that is present the second you step foot into this school is surreal. Hialeah Gardens High School (HGHS) is full of students that are striving towards their goals with the help of incredible teachers, not only do they offer the best education to their students, they truly care for the well being of their students; encouraging every student to be at their best while successfully keeping up the gladiator spirit.
