Miami Coral Park Senior High School is a secondary school located in the Westchester census-designated place of Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States.[1][2] It is a part of Miami-Dade County Public Schools.

History[edit]

The school was opened in 1963. It was the first school with air conditioning in South Florida.[citation needed]

Demographics[edit]

Miami Coral Park High School is 93% Hispanic, 2% Black non-Hispanic, 4% White non-Hispanic and 1% unknown, as of 2011.[3]

In pop culture[edit]

During the summer of 1984, Coral Park's gym was used as the Angel Beach High gym in Porky's Revenge, the third movie of the Porky's series.

From the late 1980s until 1998, the stretch of 16th street on which the school is located was renamed "Jose Canseco Street" after one of the school's most famous alumni. However, after Canseco gained notoriety due to several scandalous episodes, the street returned to its original name, "Ram Road," when students signed a petition. Part of the street is now named Ram Road/Jose Luis Rodriguez, after a local philanthropist who volunteered at Coral Park and whose son attended the school.
