It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Hialeah Gardens High School. Hialeah Gardens strives to be the premiere high school in the district. To that end, we have developed our school so that it revolves around the varied needs of our students.
We have partnered with the National Academy Foundation (NAF), a national network of high school academies, and developed several career focus academies that will prepare you for college and the world of work - locally, nationally, and internationally. These academies include our Academy of International Finance; Academy of Information Technology; Academy of Hospitality & Tourism; Engineering Academy; and the Fine Arts Academy. Within these academies, students are free to explore strands related to their field of interest. Furthermore, students can take advantage of our Advanced Academic offerings, which include Advanced Placement (AP) and we are exploring to eventually include the International Baccalaureate (IB) program when students reach their Junior year – an advanced academic program recognized world wide.
Our school offers courses that will not only meet your graduation requirements, but also provide new broader educational experiences for you as you prepare yourselves for the future. In addition, we offer many activities and sports with which our students can become involved.
You will see that we have something to offer everyone and we cater to varied tastes. Take advantage of the myriad clubs, teams, and classes available and make your high school years the memories that you will treasure while preparing yourself with a world-class education for a global economy.
Together – students, parents, faculty, staff, and community – we can look forward to a rewarding and exciting 2008-2009 school year! Please do not hesitate to call our school with any questions you might have.
