I graduated from Sunset in June 2008 and now I attend the University of Florida! I am not alone, I know at least 10 of my classmates are here at UF too. It's a knight thing. Sunset is a great school. Consider yourself lucky if you go to this school. I loved it!!!
Miami Sunset Senior High is a phenomenal school. I can say that because I attended the school all four years from my freshman year to my senior year. Sunset was built in 1977 and opened its doors that same year. Beginning in the late 1990s, Sunset became one of many overcrowded schools in the county, due to the recent population explosion in the metropolitan area. It is one of the best schools I have ever attended were I have learned alot over all courses. not only did i learn but teachers also showed us real life uses. If it wasn't for miami sunset senior high I don't know where I'd be today. As of today I am currently enrolled into one of florida's best colleges and my major is business concentrating on industrial business. Thank you so much miami sunset senior high.

I am so glad that I transferred out of Coral Reef to go here. This school is amazing. I took several different electives and the AP classes are challenging, and nobody acts like they are better than you. Don't fall into the magnet trap...they really keep you locked into one box!!! Sunset has brought me back to life. I'm looking forward to college.
i love my school =) its wonderful great teachers and great after school activities
Without a doubt this is the best school in Miami Dade. Safe, Fun, and Educational. Sunset graduates get into the same colleges as the mega magnet, and are much better rounded and prepared for the real world. The spirit of the school is amazing, I should know I transfered out of the Reef because of the back stabbing. Best decision I ever made. Go Knights!!! I'm off to Princeton.
I am currently a student at miami sunset senior high school and I am in the top ten of the school. Along the way, I have met some inspiring teachers and unique individuals with bright futures ahead of them. It just goes to show that the grade given to schools is only so because of the variety of students in that school...You can't hide that knight pride!
Although ranked as a 'D' school, Miami Sunset is a superior academic institution. The teachers there enjoy their profession and do an excellent job sharing their love of knowledge with their students. I am proud to be a Sunset Knight.
Sunset is a great school. The students really care about each other and they are so spirited!!!Very very safe environment. It was great for my son because he could chose to take a variety of classes that he liked, as opposed to a magnet school where you are forced to study one thing for 4 years. My daughter went to the Reef and after the 2nd year she wanted to study something else and could not, so from experience I would recommend Sunset over any magnet program.
I'm very dissapointed in the administration. For the past 2 years the school has been steadily declining. Sunset was 1 point away from a B rating two years ago and now they are a D school. That is unacceptable. The website is below average and nothing is being done to improve the schools reputation. The English language is not a priority there and it shows in the test scores. Our students deserve better!
This is a 'D' school!!!! I blame the administration. There is no attempt to increase student achievement.
All 4 of my children have attended Miami Sunset Senior High. My fourth child will graduate from Sunset High School in 2008. My children did very well at Sunset and were always involved in extra curriculum activities. Advisors and administrators have always responded immediately to any of my concerns. Sunset has an outstanding security system. I will continue to look forward to be associated with Sunset High School as I now have 3 grandchildren of which two will attend Sunset High. Hats of to Sunset Knights! Gloria Vallina
The most spirited and safe school in Miami! The academic opportunities are great. The teachers are experienced and the students really get along.I transfered from the reef because of gangs, and this school is so much safer. The AP classes are challenging, but much better than the other school.
Im not a parent. I am a student at sunset. I am going into my senior year and I am moving out of the state and I am verry sad to leave. It is a great school. I love it. I went to another school before and it dosent even compare. Everyone is sooo school spirited and its verybig in sports. Its just great
Very good school in academics and sports. My niece is very happy to be a student in that school. The counselors are very understanding and they help the students out when need be.
Great school ... all three of my children graduated from Sunset. One of my children Nicole was in the top 20 hitters list for Miami for girls softball. Parent involvement is up in the past three years.
Not good academic programs. Very few extracurricular actvities. Hardly no parent involvement.
this school is a dedicated one the quality of academic programs is accessible and the deciation superb almost all sports are available and the level of parent involvement is sufficient
I graduated from Sunset senior and I have a wonderful respect for all the teachers that shaped my love for the arts. The over crowded problems of the past were remedied by the expansion of the building.
I am currently a student at MS, a senior, and thus my experience so far has been quite a challenge. The faculty including teachers, administrators, and other staff are very dedicated in providing us a great educational experience. The teachers definitely stimulate our cerebral cortex, and make our neutrons fire off with each test we're given. Overall, it's a great school.(as vague as that may sound)
