This school has come a long way in fixing many of the issues that plague all public schools today - an overworked and underpaid faculty and staff, an influx of immigrant students who do not speak English but are tested by the state anyway, and an ever increasing number of tests that take up countless hours of prep and administration. Many parents, some who do not speak the language, are too busy, or apathetic, to be actively involved in the school community. Yet, the faculty, staff, administration and student body try very hard to overcome these obstacles everyday. This is a C school working hard to become a B. A lot of good things are happening there, and the Miami Springs Community should be proud of their Eagles.

Miami Springs Middle School is riddled with violent fights among students. Disrespect for the authority figures at the school. Lack of security/safety for the students.
