Miami Southridge Senior High School , is a school that for four whole consecutive years provided me with memories and opportunities far beyond my imagination. The school has provided me with countless educational, artistic, and athletic opportunities. In my experience my school was able to easily provide me academic opportunities in the form of AP Capstone and Dual Enrollment Programs which from my experience allowed me to advance in my academics with ease. This was not just done by my own effort but the effort of the wonderful staff that are the teachers and counselors who are always willing to sit down and aid in personal roadblocks. This connection between teachers and students in Southridge is what defines the school and separates it from other high schools. It is also one of the few schools I know of that is has open conversations with students regarding issues such as drug abuse through a group called HIP. Overall the school welcomes and pushes students to be the upmost best!

Realistically, Southridge isn’t terrible, but they’re far from great. There are teachers and faculty that try their best but there’s others that make it extremely clear they couldn’t care less. There was a time I tried to open up about some of the things I was going through and they didn’t provide any help, although they “pride” themselves in having available resources. Adding to that, they force their “smarter” students into taking AP and Honors courses they never asked for and refuse to take them out when they beg. A lot of the students have admitted this takes a DRAMATIC toll on their mental health. For a school that prides themselves on how inclusive they are, they act as if mental health isn’t a serious matter.

However, it’s not entirely bad. They have a GREAT program to help the homeless students receive food, water, soap, and other essentials. This doesn’t make up for their flaws but it’s a great benefit that many other schools in MDCPS do not have.
My experience at Miami Southridge was phenomenal. From the staff to the students I wouldn't change it not one bit. All of the many activities ranging from the pep rallies to the Friday night football games are just some of the best experiences here at Miami Southridge. Also, being involved in many sports and clubs and having the opportunities to get connected with others just for attending this school is what I appreciate the most.
