Miami Shores Presbyterian Church School’s mission is to offer a Christ inspired educational experience where academic excellence is nurtured, and students are treasured and respected.
Our Christian based program is designed to meet the developmental needs of young students eight weeks old through 5th grade. It provides experiences that enrich and enhance each child’s cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, creative and spiritual development.
MSPCS is a caring community. A caring community provides a warm, safe environment for the young student to learn and grow. In a caring classroom setting, students can experience a positive and productive sense of their power to learn, grow, and contribute to the lives of others. The class community enables students to maintain positive interactions, which promotes resilience, as well as cognitive learning.
Staff serves as positive role models and provides care that is supportive, nurturing, warm and responsive to each child’s individual needs. We respect parents as the primary and most important provider of care and nurturing. We believe parents and teachers are partners in student’s care and education.
