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 enjoy the diversity within my school. The teachers are phenomenal. They understand the struggles students within my school encounter. Miami Northwestern (MNW) is situated within the heart of Liberty City. Food insecurity flourishes in these low-income neighborhoods and school becomes regarded as a safe place for learning, college readiness, and career development. Yes, indeed, I admire my school; however, my school is predicated upon sports. Football is the food for thought within most low-income neighborhoods. MNW possesses the necessary resources to become a symbol of excellence as it once was. MNW introduce a dynamic medical magnet program alongside a PAVAC Program. The Performing Arts program teaches student in the areas of Art, Music, Drama, and Dance.
Undeniably, the academic opportunities at the school is plenty and the teachers all do their role well. The staff are all approachable, the majority of them being charismatic and nice, too. There are also plenty of opportunities regarding activities, such as clubs and school events; and their electives are intriguing. Unfortunately, the student conduct I have seen so far is rather below average; and although the authorities of the school have attempted to enforce their rules, the majority of the students still disobey the rules. Thus, it would be good to see the rules enforced more firmly so that the average student conduct improves. Overall, this is a good school.
