Happy to be back at Miamitown, students and staff high-five.
Miamitown Elementary is much more than the statistics. It is a place where children are given wings to overcome the challenges they face today and may confront in the future. The school is like a home for many of our Kindergarten through 5th grade students and is a catalyst in the community.
What is most influential in our school's success is how much our staff truly cares for our students. We don't see our students as collections of statistics or test scores - we strive to see the whole, miraculous child. Through high expectations of trust, respect, ownership and leadership, the Miamitown family of students, staff, and parents develops lifelong learners who are productive members of our community.
One of the strengths of the school is the focus on individuals, emphasizing each child's abilities and helping grow their skills and confidence so that they accomplish their utmost. Miamitown is a school where children come to learn academic and social skills every day. But our staff does not just teach the ABC's - these are the people who feed, clothe, listen to, and show our students we care. The positive environment at Miamitown Elementary supports academic, social, and emotional growth of all of our students.
Another forte is the multitude of programs in place to engage, challenge and motivate students. The numerous partnerships with neighborhood churches, civic organizations, parents/guardians and other community members address both basic and educational needs, encouraging our students to be successful and to be invested in learning.
