One hates school uniform while in school but when we grow up we realize how difficult it is to figure out what to wear each day. Holidays: This is the major perk of school life which we crave the most after it ends. We got numerous holidays while in school and spent them in a carefree manner without any stress. Friends: The longest known friendships are made during the school days. This is mainly because during this time we can trust people easily. We are also enthusiastic and curious to meet new people, try new things and build new friendships. Teachers: We realize how important it is to always have a guide who still thinks that we are immature for everything and makes us understand accordingly. We cannot get such a mentor/ guide after we have completed our schooling. All of these experiences hold a special importance in our hearts even as we grow up. They have taught me a lot and have helped me become the person I am today.
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.
