The American Senior High School, or The American High School, is a high school located in Country Club, unincorporated Miami-Dade County, Florida. Its principal is Francisco Garnica. It has been named a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.
American was opened in 1976 (the year of America's bicentennial); its name, sports teams (Patriots) and colors (red, white, and blue) were chosen to reflect this.
American is composed of three buildings: the main building which houses most of the classrooms, and the buildings which house the freshman class in order for there to be enough room for the rest of the student body in the main building.
American High's student population is 68% Hispanic, 28% Black, 1% Caucasian, and 1% Asian. About 81% of the students receive free or reduced priced lunch, compared to a district average of 43%. The gender breakdown is 50% male, 50% female.
