Hialeah Senior High School Reviews

I loved attending Hialeah Senior High. I graduated in 2017, went there all four year, so I saw most of the changes first hand. Because it's so close to Miami Dade, the Dual Enrollment opportunities are endless! I'd definitely recommend if planning to go to college. The magnet program is amazing, FOR ALL ARTS! If you're not Hispanic or comfortable around many Hispanics, Hialeah may not be the school for you. Everyone from students to staff to administrators is either Hispanic (mostly cuban). Some great teachers: Jenkins (History/Psychology), Soto (History/Government), Trillas (English), Herrera (Statistics/Geometry), Portella (Chemistry), and Johnson (Physical Education).

Hialeah Senior High is place of comfort, support, and motivation. Hialeah high is a second home for most. Everyone interact with each other and push one another for the greater good. The greatest thing of all was feeling welcomed and building a family with my basketball, volleyball and flag football team. You feel at home, there maybe times where you may feel down or get into arguments but that is only to push one another. Hialeah basketball coach and volleyball coach made Hialeah unforgettable for me. Without them I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
I have attended Hialeah High all 4 years and it has been the best experience of me life. I’ve made many friends and hopefully in the long run they could also be helpful. I also played basketball my 9th grade year and I’ve been the captain of the Waterpolo team all 4 years. While being in sports I also met many different people and made many friendships. Academically, I’ve loved my teacher every year and they were amazing. Although you sometimes have that one teacher I ended up having good relationships with all of my teachers.
