Hialeah-Miami Lakes Senior High School Reviews

As an incoming Senior, I am more than content with my 3 years at HML. The teachers are consistently supportive, the administration is attentive and forward-thinking, the course selection is rigorous, and the extracurriculars are irreplaceable opportunities. Speaking to the extracurriculars, HML has some of the highest performing academic competition teams of any school in Dade County, especially among traditional public schools. As a national DECA competitor, President of our award-winning Model United Nations, and team leader for our back-to-back national qualifying Project Citizen portfolio, I can honestly say HML has everything a student could ask for.

In HML, students, as well as teachers along with administrators, are helpful and kind with guiding all students into the right pathway either regarding academics and even life. I'm glad to call myself a trojan with all the positive benefits I've received while attending this school. The teachers really care about your progress and are willing to risk almost anything to help their students strive throughout their highschool career.
My school is the most diverse school within Dade county. I have attended this school for the past three years and I am profoundly impressed with its accomplishments. Schools are as good as their leaders. We students have an awesome group of teachers and staff that ensure we stay that way. Thumbs up for HML...Go Trojans!
