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.

My experience during my time in high school I had it really good moments, but my best moments that I've experienced are in a particular class during my senior year. So I was basically a new student in these kind of classes and also I'm Italian learner. I remember my first presentation in this class. I didn't want to do it, but finally I did it and that one was my best moment. When I went to present I felt afraid, and then when I presented I felt so good for the effort I applied on. Now I feel so much better than my first day of presentations because I now know that I can do whatever I want to do. The learning that I acquire made it so good this moment because I know that I have to trust on me. Something teachers or students can learn from my experience is that we have to overcome our fears and not let them control ourselves because we can't know our capabilities if we are afraid.
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.
