Miami Lakes Educational Center - High School Reviews

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.

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!
Throughout my four years in this school, I felt I had a great time! Not only did it prepare me for the future with its magnet program by having specific classes to study for it, but also the whole school is just all around nice to be in. Although things has changed a bit since I graduated (the former principal retired at the same time I graduated, class of 2015) but it's still a good school to be in if you want to get a head start with the career you wish to do!
