I liked the English department, they are great teachers! Also, the opportunity to be an AICE candidate and receive bright futures scholarship. However, I believe their college readiness personnel could do way better, take students on college tours, and make it known to the options they have in terms of schools and financial aid and scholarships.

Overall good experience. As you walk the halls you’ll see varied students. There were many clubs and activities that were fun and educational! The teachers were alright, you’ll have some that are very passionate about their work and some that are not but it’s like all the other schools. I, amongst others felt pretty safe, having many drills that prepared us for anything. Our sports team is great :)! Food is the same as in every other school. Our magnets are amazing !!! They taught us anything we needed to know. We have many electives to choose from ! All of them being amazing. I would recommend this school to anyone.

Safety, South Miami Senior High has a great amount of securities all around the school to protect students no what the situation is. The food they serve it's the perfect one to keep students awake with a great energy during the entire day Delicious! Also let me tell you more this school counts with a variety of sports for males and females. Last but not least, it counts with parent involvement great right? I believe this is very important for parents to always be involve on school projects with their kids. Finally I attended South Miami and was a fantastic experience.
