Miami Central Senior High School Reviews

In Miami Central I experienced in finding myself, understanding this world and the people around me. Also, know how to communicate with others. I love how students are able to express themselves. Miami Central has a variety of different school clubs and activities that students can join. Sports such as football, tennis, baseball etc. Elective classes are technology class, cosmetology, art, drama, etc. Few students are select to be in IPerp and magnet program and J.O .T.C. (Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps).
Teachers work hard with students and see how they learn. Administrations encourage students and say they must sign up for a scholarship. On some days we are in a lockout. That means students have six minutes to go to class or that they are locked in for the remainder of the week. This teaches students the responsibility to be on time.
Some changes I would like to see are, the school provides the students with more laptop, more toilet papers, and more safeguards.

My experience with Miami Central is that it’s a great school, the teachers and the faculty care about every student. The school make sure that everyone achieve for greatness and their goal is to make sure that every student graduate.I wouldn’t change a thing about the school.Go rocket!
Honestly, my experience in Miami Central Senior High School can be described as act 1 of the real world. During all four years of attending Miami Central Sr. High, I acquired new skills that could assist me in daily live situations and skills that I’ve already had become more advanced, such as public speaking, performances and handling responsibilities when required. As for my feelings for Miami Central, I can truly say that the teachers were who I cherished. They’ve always had something different to teach me whether I was still their student or not. When in need of counselling there was never a problem with speaking to the teachers they were there faithfully for me as a student and for my education. There isn’t a thing I’d consider changing about my school.
