    "Well, my overall experience at Southwest Miami Senior High School is great so far. I have no doubts this is one of the best high schools in the country. Every teacher is friendly and approachable, even the principal of our school is nice to students and does his best to help our school stand out. I've been two years at this school, and I can definitely say that I don't regret a minute at Southwest. It's easy to speak to teachers and talk about your concerns. They listen to you and give you advice on how to improve your grades. They really know how to help us out and recognize our hard work. I can't deny that I've had at this school the best teachers and most professional ones that I've ever had. They're well qualified as teachers and make the classroom environment an engaging and learning experience. I loved my biology class, and I have to say that I ended up loving biology more than I expected. Thanks to that class and all the experiments we did throughout the school year, I realized how amazing science can be. I also loved my English class, where I had a great English teacher. She always helped me so I could become a better writer and reader. Thanks to her, I learned the importance of explaining the ideas and supporting with plenty of evidence when writing an essay. I ended up getting the award of excellence in Language Arts because of my hard work in that class and my dedication and desire to learn. I have to mention that getting that award was one of the best experiences I've ever had, and I was able to get it because of all I learned thanks to my English teacher. In the same way, my Math, Spanish and History classes were all amazing and I learned so much that I feel proud of it. Another good thing about Southwest is the variety of clubs we have and our AP program. The teachers are highly knowledgeable and capable of teaching the material with such quality that the students can actually learn it. If I could do it all over, I would surely chose this school again."

    "The teachers at Southwest Miami Senior High School are greatly qualified and approachable. They make their classes engaging and fun. They care about their students and try their best to help them succeed. The teachers know how to effectively deal with every type of situation that might occur in the classroom. They're not only teachers, they're more like our parents because they only want the best for us. One of the greatest thing about my school, is the fact that we have well-prepared and smart teachers that completely know the material and help us learn it without difficulty. That's why we are an A school, and our students get excellent grades at AP exams, EOC's, ACT and SAT. Definitely, Southwest has the best teachers a school could ask for."
