I love the teachers, especially the AP teacher like Ms. Haselmann and Mr. Fiori! Excellent college readiness courses. I highly recommend doing the Scholars program as it will facilitate your journey to college. It's also a very diverse school and it offers many clubs including scuba, art, and ecology club. If I had anything negative to say about MBSH it would have to be the food but then again most public schools don't offer the finest lunch choices.

I entered to Miami Beach Senior High this school year 2017-2018 on my senior year and until now the experience has been good. It is a really diverse school because there are people from everywhere. I have met people from all parts of the world. The teachers are good although some of them are really annoying and don't know how to teach. I can say it is a relatively safe school. There is a lot of securities. There are a lot of clubs and activities to choose from. They offer a variety of sports too. About college readiness the college counselor is the best! She has helped me so much in these months and I am really thankful for her. I can say that they can improve their food. It is not terrible but it sometimes sucks. Although there is a great variety of food. They have vegetarian options too. From a rate from 1/10 I would give this school a 7.
I loved the environment and the people. The school was fun and had a lot of activities going on for the students. Plus, the teachers were great too! I learned a lot about myself and I was able to grow as an individual. Everyone was so friendly and accepting over there. It's a nice school and I recommend it!
