Diamond Minds is a year-round, private Pre-K through 12 school designed to ensure that each child receives a holistic education which nurtures their physical, emotional, intellectual, social, aesthetic and spiritual needs. We educate students from a range of communities around the greater Miami area including, Miramar, Little Haiti, Liberty City, Miami Gardens and Aventura. Despite its private status, the school is populated primarily by students who traditionally receive free and reduced lunch. This is possible because of scholarship programs such as Step Up for Students and McKay.
We have created a culturally responsive and compassionate community designed to inspire creative thinking, promote a love of learning, advance self-awareness, and impart the knowledge and intuition necessary to prepare children for success as global citizens. To ensure that students receive the highest quality education, the curriculum is student-centered, culturally relevant and completely integrated. The students are encouraged to draw connections across content deepening their understanding of educational material. They learn in small, multi-age classrooms, contributing to the development of leadership skills, acceptance of diversity, and independent learning.
Academic achievement coupled with exploration in the arts is an essential element in the school design. Students develop a strong sense of self through activities which encourage balance through mind, body, and spirit. The school facilitates the development of rigorous analytical thinking through tasks which introduce and enrich the core subjects (math, science, humanities, literacy and language arts) and cultivate creativity and expression through dance, music, and visual arts.
