Westland Hialeah Senior High School Reviews

I mainly took AP or Honors classes to avoid the lower leveled classes that were packed with students who were constantly disruptive. It was a bit frustrating how the administration doesn't really care about the arts department; always placing as many students as they can into a music class rather than taking the time to create a proper class for those actually interested. I did like how the Law program is slowly getting better. From Mock Trial to Student Court, these law classes sure were more interesting and hands-on than most classes. The school is a bit of a mess in terms of academics and student participation, but it's a fairly new school and the students are really the ones to blame.

Westland Hialeah Senior High School is the cleanest school in Miami-Dade County. Our janitors do an amazing job all year ensuring that we have a clean school for us to learn in. I am currently enrolled as a Health Science magnet student here at Westland. Although the program is very well, new equipment is necessary. The program could be so much better and we can have more success rates as a whole. The dance program is outrageous. We have the best director in Miami-Dade County.
I'd like to say that my good experiences outweighed the bad. The school has potential. However, MOST teachers (at least the ones I had) do not help you succeed and the faculty there could care even less. I started with a good GPA in that school and every year it kept declining because I got stuck with bad teachers, breaking my head over homework and classwork that had nothing to do with what was actually being taught and when you asked for help they blamed you for "not paying enough attention" or tell you to "figure it out." I would constantly get placed in the wrong classes too and a schedule change seemed nearly impossible. Also there is obvious favortism between students, teachers, and faculty. They need to focus more on helping their students when they need it. I really struggled trying to graduate in this school but my hard work payed off. Great activities, dual enrollment programs are good, fun school, but could be better.
