My experience at Miami Sunset Senior High School has been pretty good so far. I do like my teachers very much, some more than others. Most teachers take the time to teach and help you understand and succeed. The activities at the school are really fun. There are plenty of pep rallies, field trips, and games. We also have a National Winning dance team (Street Soul) and we have a great cheer team. At Miami sunset senior high they offer a diversity of clubs, classes etc. To list a few: honors, AP, key club, dance team, cheer team, color guard, football team, bowling team, soccer team, chess, medical magnet, technology magnet, FBLA, glee club, video game club, GSA, and many many more.

Miami Sunset Sr. High School was quite the bittersweet experience, for me. Miami Sunset has most definitely changed under the new adminstration, for the better. The current principal is the sweetest and generous man with a heart of gold. He really does care about his students and striving for the absolute best. What strikes me bad about Miami Sunset, sadly, is the lack of college readiness classes and SAT prep classes. High-school is the last place before exiting out to the college world. If students have any type of preparements made for college, students would lift their chin up with bravery rather than cower in fear.
My experience at Miami Sunset Senior High was one that I will always remember. I am a proud alumni who was very active in school activities and study groups. I was apart of many clubs including yearbook, volleyball and S.A.C.C club for student athletes to better contribute to sports and think of ways to improve. The teachers were nothing but motivating and always strived for my improvement in and out of the classroom.
