I wasted 4 years of my life at this school. First, the kids who attend this school are just disgusting. They don't know how to clean up after themselves. Then the janitors walk around as if they don't have a school to clean. Next, administration is just stupid. They literally cut 2 strands out of the school. They sold all the equipment from those strands & bought flat screen TVs. Where they do that at? The teachers? Don't let me start on the teachers. THEY DON'T TEACH! You go to class, they give you work to do but NEVER TEACH. How do they expect us to get the education we came to this school for? Moral of the story, don't send your child to this hell of a school.

Overall my experience with Miami Lakes Educational Center has been enjoyable. While it does lack any real sports and as such a lot of school spirit, it makes up for this, however, with its extreme focus on academics and job paths. This is done through the school's academies, educational strands that teach kids about a specific profession, educating and licensing them in it. The school is also fairly diverse with a nice mix of Hispanic, Black, White, and Asian kids. There are two different cafeterias one paid and one free, both serving food above your average public school. Its clubs are numerous, student-founded and maintained, with diverse subject areas. In Summation the school is a wonderful place for academic learning, willing to enable it's students the ability to join the workforce right out of school; yet it does lack the more physical excitement you'd get out of a normal highschool.
For the last three years of my high school education, I have been a student at Miami Lakes Educational Center. As for as education goes, most of the teachers aim to teach students the subject rather than prepare them for standardized tests. The atmosphere is competitive but the peers are mostly friendly. I would highly recommend this school if you are aiming to achieve certifications in different careers during your high school years!
