                                   Welcome to Pinecrest’s Public Schools

Pinecrest’s strong property values are supported by the excellence of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools located in our Village and are the very foundation of our family-friendly community.  I encourage our residents with school-age children to take a close look at our neighborhood public schools as you evaluate your many fine educational options.  I did, and I found Pinecrest’s public schools were the best choice for my own children’s education.  They truly offer excellence in our own backyard.

In Pinecrest, our five Miami-Dade County Public Schools (three elementary schools, a middle school and a high school) are traditional neighborhood public schools.  Children go to school with their friends and neighbors.  Close proximity facilitates play-dates, projects and participation in after school clubs and sports that are just a short drive or walk away.  While our schools are known for their strong gifted programs and extensive advanced placement courses, there are appropriate academic options of varying rigor, depth and variety at every level, including special needs, so all students can develop to their full potential.

What’s more, there is continuity of curriculum from elementary through high school.  This is particularly useful in foreign languages and STEM/STEAM, where students can start early in an area of interest and follow it through graduation.  At the same time, they are not restricted to the rigid curriculum constraints of magnet schools.  Our students are free to explore a myriad of electives including performing and visual arts, music, business/entrepreneurship, computer, environmental and other sciences, new and traditional media and more.  A full range of clubs, honor societies and teams complement classroom subjects so children can follow their passions, or find new ones as interest evolve.

Village students regularly compete in – and win – academic, arts and sports competitions locally and nationally starting in the elementary schools.  Field trip opportunities abound, including international experiences.

Palmetto Senior High School’s stellar college placements and storied alumni provide proof positive that Pinecrest’s public schools are an outstanding choice.

Sincerely,

Joseph M. Corradino

Mayor, Village of Pinecrest
