Miami Norland Senior High School is a secondary school located at 1050 NW 195th St in the Norwood neighborhood of Miami Gardens, Florida. The school's name come from it being the Northern most school in Miami-Dade County, following after North Dade Jr./Sr. High School


Miami Norland was graded an A school is December 2012 and it opened its doors to students in 1958 as an all-white school, taking in 50 students, including students in grades 7-12; once Norland Junior High School opened across the street, grades 7-9 moved there. Miami Norland continued to have three grade levels (10th, 11th and 12th) until 1988, when grade 9 was added. Even in Florida's oppressive heat, there was no air conditioning at the school until the late 1970s. The first principal of Miami Norland, Foster Hunter, guided the school from inception into the mid-1970s. For more than a decade, Miami Norland Senior High School was an all-white school; this changed in 1969, when all schools in Dade County were court-ordered to desegregate.

The original buildings of Miami Norland still remain. These original buildings include the first two main rooms, whoe room, wood stop and drop, metal in and out lab, art wing, auditorium, band room, annes's, and chorus room. In 1964, a library wing was added, giving Miami Norland one of the largest libraries in the Miami-Dade public school system. The main office was remodeled and a science wing was added in 1996. A new gymnasium was added in 2006, and the old gym was converted to a two-story classroom building (which included a dance studio), allowing the school to add a dance program to their academy programs. The school now offers an Academy of Fine Arts, Hospitality and Tourism and Teaching magnet programs. One of the best band in Miami-Dade County.
