Overall my kids had a good experience. Academics were pretty good. They were able to challenge themselves with AP courses. Like anything in life, improvements can be made. Sports programs are great. Just need to get rid of all the politics. Sports need to go back to talent being highlighted again. Grades do count which is great. However, all students should be given equal opportunities, and that just doesn't happen anymore. It's really sad, but just like everything else politics has taken over sports. It's no longer about talent; it's who you know. This is across the board; it doesn't matter what sport!

I have been at Miami Palmetto Senior High School for four years now. Palmetto is an above average public school located in the heart of Pincrest, Florida. The education is not the best although there are many teachers who have impacted my life and have given my skills that will last a life time. I believe that the administration should interact more with the students but besides that, the school is highly recommended by an almost Miami Palmetto Senior High alumni!
As an incoming senior at Palmetto, I have had three years of experience as a student here. The overall culture, in many different aspects, is extremely diverse in the school itself, which is perfect for anyone who wants to fit in anywhere. As a student, you are exposed to different ethnicities, socio-economic backgrounds, personalities, interests, and essentially anything else you can think of. The competitive environment of Palmetto in regards to academics, athletics, and other areas are impressive and inspiring, yet not overbearing. I am very pleased with my choice to attend Palmetto instead of Coral Reef Senior High School.
