Miami Sunset Senior High School Reviews

This was a school where I learned to be independent. Miami Sunset Sr. High School gave me many academic opportunities. One of them being the dual enrollment program. I will forever be grateful that I participated in this program because they provided me the college experience while still in high school. This helped me advance further in my studies and I graduated from high school with 60 college credits for free. Granted this opportunity was not only given but it was earned on my part. I know there is a lot of bad commentary on this school and like every school it has its pros and cons. However, in my experience I genuinely learned so much and I believe they have shaped me to be the person I am today loving, caring, accountable, and responsible.

This experiences prepare us students for the future and they are also really fun!
Miami Sunset Senior High is inclusive of all its students regardless of their race, nationality, and/or ethnicity. The majority of instructors care for their students and are proficient at teaching the class' material. One thing that could improve is the number of extracurricular activities/clubs provided to students.
