    "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."

    "I think that SMHS is a good School, i have been a personal experiencie with my daughter which is in Magnet Dance Program.The teachers are great! The only complaint i have is in reference to the personal Office, they always answer the phone in a bad manner and never help parents to resolve a problem. All the time they seem unhappy and with bad mud., it doesn't matter the time of the day. The morning is worst!!!"
