Happy to have both of my children attending Sunset Senior High. We are happy with the school curriculum and the attentiveness of all the subject teachers.
When I was there, it was a decent school. I had maybe three teachers who invested their time to help me be a better student and musician. I graduated in 2011 and there are some things about it that I do miss.
The reviews that are saying that this is a great school were written as a JOKE by my peers. None of the recent graduates from Sunset are attending Ivy League schools. I graduated from this school this year (2013). I can honestly say that Sunset did absolutely nothing for me as a student. The faculty is a joke. Whenever I needed advice or help, nobody knew or cared to help. I was in all honors and AP classes, which were taught by the "best" teachers, but even many of them refused to answer simple questions or explain something to me that I didn't understand. The regular-level teachers do nothing but hand out worksheets. I can honestly only say I had 3 teachers that genuinely cared about me and my education. By the time you are a senior there is nobody to ask questions to about college or scholarships. I am headed to a very good university, full ride, but if it wasn't for me going out of my way and finding info about schools, scholarships, etc, I would have nothing, like many intelligent classmates I knew. Do your BEST to steer clear of this school. Almost ANY high school in Kendall is better than this. The only good thing I can say is that I felt safe on campus.
i dont go here YET !!!!!. but i cant wait omggggggggggggg. i feel like its going to be really fun.
I used to be a student here and I am missing my teachers and my friends who I left here,for me this school is great..I love it !!
Simply the Best!! An amazing academic environment, and students are proud to be here. Just visit our website and see for yourself. We are the most spirited school in KendalI; It's a Knight Thing!! All of that plus scholarships to the best Universities too! Our AP program is the largest, so why would you even consider any other school?
It is a colleg prep school, with a remarkable staff!! The AP program is second to none. Sunset's graduates attend Harvard, Princeton, UF, and Stanford. The sports program is great. Football, Basketball and Softball scholarships are plentifull. Simply the best school in Miami!!
This school has really helped me focus on my work and staying committed to what i love. i transfered to sunset in feb. and i was in a bad whole with my grades. now i am a B student and a junior!! c/o 2011. '#95'
It's like a college prep school only better!!Every student can take Music, Art, Science, as well as Medical Science, Computer science, Video Production, Law and more. As electives, you can take whatever interests you so that you are sure of what you want to study in college. I received a well rounded education, and so can you!!! I left the reef to go here, it was the best decision of my life. I'm at Princeton now
An excellent institution that will prepare your child for college. High quality teachers and the students are disciplined and want to be here. Many children transfer here because the environment is friendly and your child will learn!! Always top ten in sports too!!
My daughter is a graduating senior, but i'm sorry to say she is not prepared properly for college. She has low scores in basic math, and is having to take remedial math in college, by the way she is an honor roll student. Does that make any sense to you. Unfortunately our schools teach kids how to pass fcat, and that is all that matters. I'm very disappointed in education my child received at sunset.
I think the best thing that has happened to this school is Dr. Cox. Her doors are always open for the parents and that is what schools need. The problems is not the school, teachers or staff it is that parents don't get involved. Because your child is in High school it's not over it is just starting.
This is the best school ever!as a freshman this has been the best experience of my ife every day that i wake up im exicted to go there not because of the school but because my friends and the atmosphere of the school is really fun!i've had the most fun here and i can't belive it cuz im a lazy thug but this school is the best yo!(Grettel Gonzalez rm 360 the best teacher ever)
This cool has a great mixture of races, it is safe, has a great curriculum, counselors, and teachers. From my opinion, it is one of the best schools in Kendall area.
I am a former student of miami sunset and I have to say that I absolutely hated school. the school was overcrowded. there was no involvement with teachers. the teachers seemed like they didnt care whether the students passed or failed which in return most of the students ended up failing. It did nothing for me to prepare for college. There was no school spirit from the students from the students because nobody enjoyed going to school.
Sunset is a great school. My child chose to go there instead of a magnet. He told me that it was the best desision of his life.
Miami Sunset is academically excellent!! We have more graduates that get into top rated colleges than any other Dade County school ( Yes.. even more than those magnet schools). The teachers prepare you for college not just for an Fcat. Some teachers have been here for more than 20 years!!
I am a Sunset graduate who attends UCF. I keep bumping into people who went to Sunset here..It's definetly a Knight Thing!! If you want to get into the best colleges, Miami Sunset will get you there.
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.
