The school is very open and brings good spirit to its students everyday. It has wonderful teachers, who support their students. As well as wonderful coaches for all their sports teams. I am hoping to see that the number of students in the classes lessen. Otherwise the school is amazing!

I am a current senior at Miami Beach Senior High School, and my graduation is just around the corner. The scholars program that I am in meets the needs of students who are looking to work hard in the academic sphere because there are specific courses that must be taken to stay in the program. I have taken AP classes since my freshman year and it has helped me prepare for college and stay organized and prepared for life as well. What I love most about this school is the extra activities and high academic program offered. There are photography, art, theatre, and JROTC programs at our school that help add to a students life inside school and outside as well. I am part of the Art and Photography program which has given me more experience and taught me more about these two activities. I would love to see change for this school and that includes more activities in sports and less enforcement of school uniform because I believe we all have the right to express ourselves even in school.
During my 4 years at Miami Beach Senior High I enjoyed my stay. The convention center and Lincoln road provided endless amenities. The night life was rich and the coast was near. The school itself hosted a melting pot of cultures and diversity was abundant. I met Brazilians, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Haitians, Jamaicans, and more. The campus was huge with 3 stories of classes. The campus was clean and the halls were wide. Students sold muffins, cuban pastries, and krispy kreme donuts. There was no shortage of food, friends, or staff. The only downside was traffic after dismissal. It was difficult riding public transportation as the buses were always full.
