Miami Killian Senior High School 5

I graduated Killian High in 2000 and was very happy with the school and went straight to a four year college after graduation. (Florida International University then University of Miami). It has outstanding AP and Honors classes that really prepare you for college. There can be some bad elements in the school but for the most part if you enroll in the advanced classes and stay busy with extracurriculuar activitites you will succeed. If you enroll your teen in this school do NOT put them in the regular classes. AP and Honors classes all the way. Regular classes tend to be full of the underachievers and kids that barely speak english. The school is over 60% Hispanic. Keep your teen busy while at this school. There are a plethora of outstanding activities to keep them out of trouble. From what I hear they do not allow the students to leave campus during the day anymore. When I went to the school we were allowed to have lunch at Ron Ehmann park next door until a huge gang riot broke out one day circa 1998 that made the park off limits during school hours. Great school if you put your kid in the advanced programs.

Pricipal Ennis is a great leader for this school. This school now boasts of an "A" rating in the Miami Dade County Public Schools rating system ("F" being the lowest). My son is enrolled in the I-Prep program which is super challenging, event for a gifted student. I chose this school over other's he was accepted to (MAST Academy, Coral Reef, Columbus (Private)) for the down to personality of most of the students, the excellent curriculum, awesome sports programs and easy access to public transportation. This school is in a neighborhood with million dollar homes and that campus is expansive. It is a large school that feels small due to the dedication of the teachers and support staff. The administration evens attends the local varisty sports events to show their support for their students. I LOVE this school

Killian is a very good school. I'm going to be a junior this upcoming year. I hear many people say Killian is a bad school and that bad kids go there but its not true. Every school is going to have those "bad kids". The school offers so much to its students. The principal Mr. Ennis is amazing. The teachers, for the most part, are great. I recommend Killian to other students. Of course every school has its downsides but overall I love it.

Killian has good teachers that have high expectations of us. Most were always willing to lend an extra hand to help you learn before or after school. All schools have their share of bad/ uncaring teachers. I have friends in the other local high schools (magnet and well-established schools with excellent reputations), and each year they've had their complaints about some of their teachers-- Killian is no exception but overall a good school and learning environment. My suggestion: always take the highest level classes you can.

This school has an open communication policy. The principal is accessible as are the APs. The teachers are responsive. Communication is excellent. Killian still provides a great rounded education. Dual enrollment classes are a wonderful asset as well.
