    Overall Experience: It's a fine school academically. But it definitely isn't my favorite place in the world.

    Sports & Fitness: With a new high school building, all the athletic facilities were new as well. While it's all nice to look at, it doesn't always match up with the ability of the teams. The athletic success of the school comes and goes in waves, it'll be successful for a couple years, then as skilled athletes move on the success starts to fade depending on the coaching staff too.

    Educational Outcomes: I was overly confident going into college, only to realize how strenuous it really was. Once I learned that good grades weren't going to just be given to be because I was there, I had to accept that I wasn't as prepared as I had previously thought. In high school, I was very aware that not everyone in my graduating class was even going to attend college, and this is very different than most of the other students who attend small colleges with their background in private schools. The thing that does surprise me though is how many of the students I graduated with who are attending Miami seem to not have any difficulties. There's mixed feelings on how well prepared you will feel depending on what you decide to do after graduation.

    Administration & Policies: The administration was pretty lenient with things like the dress code, but knew when they needed to intervene especially when it came to bullying.

    Teachers: Many teachers would give give students less challenging work to do, especially during the senior year. AP classes with a strict schedule weren't like that.
