Miami Killian Senior High School Reviews

I started attending Miami Killian in March of 2019. My first day there was so overwhelming that I cried. The staff is friendly and helpful, especially at the main office. They have some great teachers there who are truly dedicated to their craft and who actually care about their students. The school has many different sports teams but they only focus on football, baseball, and basketball teams. Not many electives are offered and most of their electives are not very interesting. The safety and discipline of the school are quite poor, in my opinion. Many of the kids that attend are rude, vulgar and disrespectful towards the teachers, the bathrooms are dirty, and the showers in the locker room are just filthy. But the activities thrown by the school are fun, but with a higher budget, they would be even better.

I transferred to Miami Killian senior high at the end of my sophomore year. My experience there has been very different from my previous school, the staff is definitely nicer. The quality of the education is lower, despite the fact that some of the teachers are dedicated to their craft and are very enthusiastic and understanding, the students do not meet their level of enthusiasm. I also think that in terms of safety, there's space for improvement. The sanitation could also use an upgrade, as well as discipline. The school could use a budget augmentation for restorations.
Killian is a very...robust school. It's the most diverse in the county, and it really shows. The school has a long legacy of greatness, but in recent times, it seems like it's fallen from greatness. Still, there are definitely vestiges of that former glory. The administration are all very passionate and try their best to make the school a great environment, restore it to its former glory, in the face of low funding and logistical issues. I made lifelong friends and unforgettable memories in its halls, and I've seen the school change, for better and for worse, but I think the school is on the right path. I believe Killian is healing.
