I liked that the students there and a few of the teachers made things fun, but also made sure we were on top of our grades which leads to what is most important....graduating. I would say that school needs to work on a lot of things. One, is the lunch food. This is not mostly based on the school, because all schools in Miami-Dade County have bad food for breakfast and lunch. Another thing is that when it is time to pay for senior events, they are so unorganized. They announce it sometimes way too early than I think it should be, and also they give students a short amount of time to pay. I'm sure there are a few more issues but that is the main ones I can remember from the top of my head.

The iPrep program allowed me to meet charismatic, intelligent teachers, and truly made me feel at home. I felt like I could trust almost anyone. However, those that aren't in iPrep tend to merge into in-groups, and it's almost impossible to join them. The facilities are somewhat unhygienic, and the school's infrastructure and maintenance definitely shows its age. It's not in a particularly impressive location, but it's a worthwhile experience if you push yourself and have no other option.
I love my school, not because of how it looks, it's sports teams or because I'm lying, but because of the opportunities that I've had to meet amazing people. Those who were once strangers are now my family, the ones who were just teachers have shaped my life greatly, becoming more like friends, and the people that skipped me in the lunch line every single day... I'm not so fond of. But although there were bad moments, the experience as a whole was better than any I could ask for, and I couldn't have done it if it wasn't for my school. If it was a person, I would probably hug it.
