When I first enrolled into Miami Northwestern Senior High school my ninth grade year I thought woah this school is different. Miami Northwestern is one of the schools that has the largest school pride and they truly are concerned with the success of their student body. I truly enjoy their medical magnet program in which I have the honor to be apart of. This program has taught me the importance of dreaming big and living up to that dream, self-value and the variety of careers that are upon us.I'm going to miss it here. I recommend this school to any over achiever student who enjoys English or Literature try signing up for Mr.Williams AP English and Language course or AP English Literature. If your fascinated with potentially having a future career in Health, join the medical magnet program. If you receive Mrs. Warren Salmon I guarantee you will have a bright future!

I have definitely had some amazing teachers over the years but nothing and no one will ever compare to Mr. Williams at Miami Northwestern Sr. I know I can speak for many others when saying that. Mr. Williams has seen it all. The happy times, the sad, the tragic, the heartbreak, the lazy, the bratty, ALL OF IT and he deserve so much credit for it, and to know how much I APPRECIATE him. He went above and beyond to not only make sure that Im successful in school, but in life and just always striving to make sure our overall happiness was what came first. I have such a big space in my heart for my English teacher, and the faculty at MNW. Mr. Williams You’re the real MVP!
Miami Northwestern Senior High School is a great school. This school made my high school experience so much better. One thing I could say about this school is that it has so much school spirit. I learned a lot here, I could say this school made me who I am today. This school made me feel so comfortable and safe!! I was excited to go to school. Miami Northwestern made learning fun. For the little time I was here, I could say it was the best. I wish I would have attended this school all four years. I am currently a senior and Miami Northwestern staff is helping me through this whole college process! I am excited to see how the rest of the year goes. On a scale 1-10 I would give my high school experience a 10. This school paves a way for students, especially African American students. I love the fact that I am surrounded by positive people. Everyone tries to encourage and motivate each other. Moral of the story, this has been the best school I've ever attended. Class of 2021!!!
