    "I graduated a couple years back and really it's a great school. It made a MAJOR improvement from my freshman to junior year. I'm pretty sure it was able to go from a D school to a B school in one year. While there are some teachers who probably shouldnt be there (lack of competence, to be honest, and its a shame) there are several who are truly good at what they are doing. They care about the students and want to teach. They offer plenty of AP courses as well! I only wish their Arts program was better. Its also important to note that in my time there I never experienced or witnessed any really bad bullying. South Miami is a good school that I'm sure will keep on getting better!"

    "Going to South Miami Senior High School is depressing. The unpleasant aesthetics of the school (one of the buildings literally has no windows and is completely concrete), the prison like administration (with constant uniform sweeps, tardy tank that sends you to SCSI where one gets sentenced to a day of absolute silence in a tiny room with a barking babysitter, and of course the wonderful security gaurds that are constantly questioning you if you are spotted in the halls), and of course the education which is undoubtedly unsatisfactory. The regular course teachers are only there to prepare their students for the FCAT, so one has to take full AP courses to receive a decent education; there are a very limited selection of APs at that. The math department can be said to have only one good teacher, there are very few academies (the IT academy is deplorable, only very highly motivated students can succeed, as there is no real effort to do any sort of work), and there are even fewer elective choices for educational enrichment. I would not recommend South Miami Senior High School to anyone, even those who want to participate in a magnet program."

Also the students will be our future so is very important what they learn in High School."
