When I attended Miami Carol City Senior High I saw the teachers trying their best to provide students with the proper education. However, I feel that the administration can be a bit more respectful not only to students but parents as well. All in all, the teachers I had, and the experiences I was a part of made my high school journey great!

I like that alot of the administration always wanted to see me succed even though sometimes I would doubt myself that I wouldn't be able to achieve my dream. I loved that they always try to make me see the bigger picture not of high school and how high school is just preparing you for what is next. I loved that they basically really care as long as you try to care for yourself. Somethings that I hate is that our school doesn't have no more school spirt anymore because of administration with petty stuff. Our school doesn't have enough teachers making the school great with our no more existing academies which helped bring in more of the bright kids, but that's overall in dade-county public schools that we are low on teachers.
I, Vanessa Cesar have attended Miami Carol City Senior High school for my 11-12 grade year. Education here was very nice and important not only to the students but also the educator. I really enjoyed my time here. Perhaps, the thing that should change and improve is the violence in the area that is brought to the school. Overall, Miami Carol City SHS is great!
