High school is a challenge in itself. Booker T. washington makes it an easy transition from middle school to high school to college. Im a graduate (Suma Cumlade 2008) of BTW and plan to major in Pharmacy at Florida A & M University. Like everything high school gives you what you put into it. Its given me great opportunities. I have been able to intern at the Vascular Biology Institute at jackson hospital along with the University of Miami. Also, I was blessed to have the chance to intern a a Pharmacy my senior year. BTW has made me a well-rounded student, from football games to anchoring on t.v. to having the best interning opportunities. BTW is small enough for a student to be paid attention to yet large enough to have a state champion football team. It has been a GREAT experience :)... Jasmine J. class of 2008..

The [school] needs a total makeover. Students are not as thrilled about tackling problems that the school face. Motivation is the key. More parent imput is needed. The more parents get involved with the school, the more 'say' parents will have. The extracurricular activites are the only thigs giving life to the school.

I am a parent of two and have to say that my children enjoyed their time there and had no complaints whatsoever. They both received an excellent educational and life skills foundation and I am very proud and grateful for the school.

I am a recent student in B.T.W. and it's just like any other school, you have your achievers, and you have your skippers. I believe that the reason B.T.W. shows more negativity is because of its location; In the heart of overtown and next to little havana with Kids from tough neighborhoods with crushed spirits. The one's with fighther spirits study hard and are able to get out of there. B.T.W. is a great school with a great principle, and wonderful counselors and wonderful teachers who make you want to study and make something out of yourself. I don't appreciate people putting my school down because of their own uncivilized kids. B.T.W. is there to teach us and get us where we want to be; but it's up to the parents to teach kids the basics like not offending others, etc, not to the school.

Am not a parent but i was a student at Booker T.Washington senior high school.I think that this school has many opportunities - you just have to know how to achieve them. I was not a good student - I was one of the bad students, skipping,not going to class and etc. The point here is that this is a good school with great opportunities so grab them. I am now in the Miami Job Corps program where I am getting another chance in getting my G.E.D and a trade in business, but this school is the best high school.
