Principal’s Message


In 2021-2022 Miami Springs Middle School is committed to…

RESETTING high expectations for everyone,

RENEWING our goal of increasing student achievement,   

RE-ENGAGING with our students and families.

Our students will thrive throughout this school year as they engage with our faculty and staff and immerse themselves in challenging curriculum and elective courses. 

Our Cambridge and Gifted courses will challenge students to soar to new heights of achievement.  Our ESOL program will guarantee our students will increase their language skills and raise their reading comprehension.  Students in our ESE program have a supportive group of teachers and courses from our self-contained core classes to inclusion and general education courses offered with support. 

Our CODING AND ANIMATION MAGNET (CAM) continues to win district and state competitions.  Our “Eagle STEAM” Academy, is in its third year and our students are flourishing.  Our Law Studies courses continue to grow with new 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Law Studies classes added.

Our World Cultures Leadership course is now part of the 6th grade curriculum.  Students in this course will be introduced to different cultures, strengthening their collaboration and communication skills while fulfilling the Miami Springs Middle School Vision of “encouraging our students to take an active role in their learning, to share ideas and work with others to create learning experiences that have a positive impact on their school and their communities.” 

We have also added Rock Band, Vex Robotics, Computer Science, 3D Printing, Culinary, Forensics, Astronomy and Spanish to our elective programs.  Not to be left behind is our amazing Restorative Justice Program (RJP) program where select students are trained to lead small groups of students towards stronger communication and collaboration in an atmosphere that values equity, respect, and safety. 

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to making sure our students and their families are academically and socially and emotionally engaged with us in a safe learning environment.  Our priority is high academic achievement, safety, and communication.
