Thank you to Aaron Kurtz, English Instructor, Yearbook Advisor, and All-around Good Guy, at Killian High for contributing this image of Miami Killian Senior High that was in their first yearbook. Killian had opened one year before.

It is amazing to see the lack of development around the school and the volume of Dade County Pines in the area, something we are seriously lacking now. Obviously the school system flattened a ton of pines when building the school except for a small strip of them along the fenceline.

other sizes: small medium large original

I would have graduated from Killian in 1977 if I hadn't moved. I lived just down the street from the school and remember riding skate boards in the hallways, playing football on the lawn and riding bikes in the parking lot. My older brother was attending there when desegregation occurred, not a fun time. The two streets to the left were actually an unofficial dump site before they built homes there. When I was a kid, we started a fire in those woods accidentally.

We moved into the school district in Nov. 1968. The high road in the photo is S.W. 106th Street and is the north side. The west side is S.W. 97th Avenue. The high pines area to the south became a park with a jogging path. By the time we moved away in 1998, the school and the surrounding area looked very different. My 3 children graduated from the school in the years 1984, 1986 , and 1991.
