Anybody can be a Hi Tide at Miami Beach Senior High. Everybody at Beach High fits in no matter which ethnicity or background they may have. Even though majority of the students are from latin backgrounds or jewish families, as a catholic French young man, it was not difficult for me to make friends and be part of the school spirit. As the only public school in Miami Beach, they welcome a great number of students. Our faculty wants to make sure that the students are able to study any subject that truly interests them due to their vast amount of electives. As a musician, it was logical for me to associate myself with the music programs such as the Tri-M (Music Honors Society) and the Miami Beach Senior High Rock Ensemble. I am proud to say that we have a remarkable music program that constantly continues to win numerous awards every year. I enjoy being a Hi Tide. I enjoy it because I feel encouraged by my school, I feel welcomed by my class mates, and I am proud of what my school has done for the students.
