Miami Lakes Educational Center (MLEC), sometimes referred to as Miami Lakes Tech or simply Tech, is part of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools system. It is one of only three area vocational-technical training centers. It is the only dual-delivery school in Miami-Dade County, providing adult vocational training in conjunction with a full-service high school. This allows the high school students to attend regular academic classes and technical or vocational training programs during the same school day on the same school campus. The school is a magnet high school, which requires high school students to be accepted to attend the school. Upon graduation, high school students can receive both a high school diploma and a certificate of completion from the vocational training program in which they participate. Miami Lakes Educational Center has consistently maintained an "A" grade on the FCAT. Students from MLEC took part in a march for Trayvon Martin.
