Mission & Beliefs

The mission of NMES is to develop inquisitive minds that take the initiative to solve real-world problems with integrity.


NMES Vision Statement

Our school vision guides our school improvement decisions and daily practice. It is based up the ASCD Whole Child Initiative (2015) to ensure that we are developing all aspects of our students.

North Miami Elementary School's staff, parents and community focus on the development of the whole child to ensure that all students are safe, healthy, engaged, supported, and challenged. We are committed to preparing our students for a rapidly changing world by providing a strong academic foundation, developing inquisitive minds, and instilling the core values of integrity, perseverance, and compassion for others.

We acknowledge every child comes to us with specific strengths and areas of need, so our teaching practices are proactive and responsive to the needs of our students. We provide experiences that help our students discover their potential, achieve academic growth and succeed in a safe, caring environment. We value the input and encourage the participation of every member in our school community, knowing that each person's contribution is essential to our success.
