Miami Central is located in North Miami. The school is very diverse. In my opinion, we have some of the best teaches at Miami central. The football team is amazing. The new band director is killing it right now! The school is so diverse that the students create their language and way to communicate. The school provides students with a lot of collegial level classes making them ready for the rigorous classes in college.

What I like about Miami Central Senior High, is that there are a majority of diverse students, teachers, and staff members. Counselors are very invested with your education and as well as the principal. If you lack on passing a test or class, they offer tutoring, night school, and SAT/ACT prep tests. There is no possible way you could fail in Miami Central's hands!
Miami central senior high school taught me a lot over my four years for being a student here i loved almost everything a young adult should know going off into the world and I’m so thankful to say I’m ready. I also want to know Miami central senior high school for accepting me and taking their time out to help me. Thanks to the actual teachers that’s really cared and wanted to see me do better and take their time out and push me to do better I’m really thankful it means a lot knowing that i was actually loved and cared by the staff at Miami central. Thank you!
