Miami Sunset Senior High School Reviews

Considering that there are worse schools in Miami-Dade County to go to, I'm grateful that I had the chance to go here. This school isn't the best as far as academics are concerned, but that's mostly due to a lack of effort put forth by the student body. In reference to the activities provided here, we could definitely use more pep rallies and such to boost school spirit. The diversity of the student population is slowly growing but I am still the only black student in each of my classes, even though there are other black students who attend this institution. The student population is predominantly Hispanic. There is no parent involvement. College readiness- what's that? We've only recently added a SAT/ACT Prep course, but it only focuses on reading and most students need help in math. In conclusion, enroll at your own risk.

The experience at Miami Sunset Senior High was a bit mediocre with a few highlight points whenever there were school games or theatre shows. The environment were mostly minorities such as latino and black, the teachers were mostly average and some helpful and others were a bit aloof or extra for no reason. The food being given could definitely use some help. The breakfast however was not so bad. The area was not always cleaned but did improve from previous years and overall it was an average school to be fair.
As a junior my experience at this school has always been positive, the school has overcome many hardships over the years. With principle lux he has made the school much better, there are many events, clubs and things to offer the kids. Even though many don’t take upon the opportunities there are MANY to choose from including the excellent magnet programs. I highly suggest taking upon a magnet which will greatly prepare you in whatever career you want.
