MUA is a great school. I attended from 8th grade until 12th grade and I can honestly say that attending this school was a turning point in my life. Receiving a Christian education outweighed any supposed disadvantages that people enumerate when discussing Christian schooling. My teachers took a personal interest in my well-being, not just academically, but spiritually and emotionally as well. Because of the small class sizes, I had the same classmates every year, which took away the social pressures that kids face when matriculating through high school and trying to fit in to various social groups. We were really like a family. College or some sort of post-secondary education is expected of all students, constantly discussed and promoted. The only thing that I wish could change is that the school could offer a more varied curriculum as far as electives and sports programs, but this is nothing when compared to all the advantages.

This school is by far, The worst school I put my child in. The students are extremely rude, And by when they get to high school, I'm carrying my heart in my hand. My child completely changed, When she was in elementary school she was nice and all, But now in the 8th grade, I made a terrible mistake sending her here. She curses, she has a boyfriend, and I never gave her permission to have a Facebook account. Every single girl in middle school are probably prostitutes. And I feel like telling their parents. The boys I understand but the girls? They need to have self respect. My daughter will not expect to see this class next year. And the thing is this is a private school. But acts more like a public. And public schools are even better that this old school. The teachers and staff are not the problem, ITS THE STUDENTS. Miami Union Academy, It is YOU that need the prayers.

I have three children at Miami Union and they have been there since kindergarten. I have had good the outweight my bad experiences. Above all, The school have had some wonderful instructors and some that I was not please with . Having good rapport with the teacher is ver important. I believe there are room for improvements. I teach my children to respect authority and their elders (teachers..) however, I expect noone to disrespect my children. I have a low tolerance for disrespectfulness. MUA your are a good school but like I said you can reach even higher and become a five star s. Have zero tolerance for foolishness that occurs.

Our child attend this school for the very first time last school year. I must say that I was pleasantly suprised. The high school curriculum was very challenging and my child did very well. Considering my child came from the public school system and did very well there we came to realize that in these last days christinan is very important. We've found out that the teachers and staff does an awsome job as it relates to commitment and dedication to teaching the students. In addition, some of the high school teachers tutor the students for free before and after school to ensure the students receive the extra help they may need. The only area our child has a problem with is the sports program. Other than that our child has ajusted and we are very happy that our child is receiving a christian education in one of God's

This school is only a school for kids up to the 8th grade. once the students get into high school, the kids are kind of loose. The school is based on favoritism, and the staff cn get a little rude. the academia is not really challenging, and not all the students are well-behaved.

This school is the best school in the world and I make sure to tell everyone that I know. The teachers are there for the educational advancement of the students and they are blessed because of it. I wouldn't trade the experience of attending Miami Union Academy for anything in the world. Miami Union Academy did a wonderful job of preparing me for college and life in general. I was also able to make life-long friends who share in the common theme that with all the ups and downs that we experienced, we love our school. If you are considering sending your child/ren to a school where the teachers care, the education is great and God is above everything send them to Maimi Union Academy.
