North Miami Senior High School (NMSHS) is a public high school in North Miami, Florida, United States. Located at 13110 NE 8th Avenue, The school opened as Edward L. Constance Junior-Senior High School in 1951; with 1,500 students in 7th, 8th and 9th grades. Another grade was added each year for the next three years. The class of 1955 was the first graduating class. Early in 1955, the name of the school was changed to North Miami Senior High School.[3] In the fall of 1955 the 7th, 8th and 9th grades were moved to the new North Miami Junior High School.


After the 2010 Haiti earthquake, North Miami High enrolled 88 survivors, the largest number of any MDCPS school. North Miami is a center of middle class Haitian Americans and most of the survivors who came to the Miami area were middle class. Michael Winerip of The New York Times interviewed 10 survivors at North Miami. They all indicated that the academic work at North Miami was less rigorous than the work at their private Haitian schools. After the earthquake, eight of the interviewed students reached Miami by flying on commercial airline services out of airports in the Dominican Republic. All of the students had visas to reside in the U.S., and many had previously spent summer vacations in Miami.[4]
