My experience at Miami Northwestern was a very unique one. I originally attended Miami Central, but transferred because Northwestern; also known as "the West". The west offers better career opportunities. Despite the negativity people spread about my school because of the area its located in, the West fills its students with dignity, choices and school pride. Our band performs in the court yard during lunch at times, our City Year members start our morning with music and games, and our administration have events or shows for us after school hours. One exciting thing about my school is our sports and extracurricular activities. We have an amazing football team and auxiliary. As for my school's career opportunities, we have one of the best medical programs in Miami Dade. I am enrolled in this program and currently taking the certified nursing assistant class. Many students have graduated and became successful in the medical field due to Northwestern's medical program.
Miami Northwestern Senior high school is a excellent school to be apart of and I am proud to be a 4 year attendant of it. MNW possess an atmosphere of school pride which can be seen from the students themselves and even the walls full of encouraging quotes. Although academics are an important factor in their reputation for greatness, extracurricular activities such as sports, dance, and programs like medical magnets is the prominent reason for attending MNW. With a football team who has won state championships, a dance team ran by an iconic dance teacher, and a medical program that guarantees you a job in nursing, MNW seems to me to be a school that allows students to have success through their own talent and creativity.
