Miami Jackson Sr. High is in the inner city part of Miami, FL my freshman experience was terrible so has my other years been. The school has certain good teachers the rest are terrible and get to personal with students with personal life and etc... Some teachers have such strong accents you can’t understand them or the way they teach, teachers don’t care about your education just about what they are teaching they don’t care if you understand or not! Their attitude is terrible. The school over all is way to strict like if we were in prison. They are super short on staff members, teachers, counselors, etc...
When i think about my high school experience, there are many things that come to mind. Some of them are: good memories, bad memories, mistakes, lessons, happiness, heartbreak, misfortune, joy, drama, and most importantly, fun. High School to me seemed like it past by really fast, almost too fast sometimes. I learned many valuable life lessons as well as made life long friends. I learned the value of hard work, dedication, and also how to tell your real friends from the others. It was tough but overall a great experience that i will soon miss.
