My son is presently at N. Dade CML and my daughter is now at one of the best Middle Schools in the state much due to the excellent preparation that she received at CML. Both of my children were at private schools and I took them out when I got the news that they were accepted. It is a safe, well run machine! I love how the administrators and teachers push the envelope for student learning and an environment of challenges. Kudos to a great start for my babies! I am forever indebted to N. Dade Center for Modern Languages.
Absolutely love this school, wish I would have started her in 1st grade....However, she started last year for 3rd grade....academics are at the top, teachers are exceptional.....My daughter loves school more than ever now..the school is filled with activities etc....any concerns the principal is ALWAYS available....my daughter has always excelled in her academics, but this school really challenges your child to his/her full potential...excellent school, teachers and adminstrator!!!!!
Coming from a private school, this was the best school I could have selected for my children. The faculty, staff and administration are knowledgeable, and always accessible. The curriculum is outstanding. Most of CML's students are placed in advanced courses in middle school, and are able to take AP and Dual courses in high school. An outstanding school and unforgettable experience!
I am working at CML for 9 years. The teachers are excellent and outstanding who really care, great leadership and a quality eduction. This is an A school for many years, thanks to our teachers, students and staff members. This school is a blessing in our community, it is comparable with a private school. Xiomara Martinez
I attended CML in the early 90's and I can attest to the schools greatness. I have since graduated from the University of Florida and I credit the discipline instilled in me at such a young age by teachers, such as Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Turner, Mrs. Brown, Mr. Nu ez, and Mrs. Sweeny, helped me tremendously. Good luck with the new school Dr. Castaigne and thank you so much for the memories. CML was truly a blessing!
This school is a blessing in our community. Our son was attending Beacon Hill Prepatory School from Pre-K to 1st grade. We enrolled him in our local Public school for 2nd grade. Unfortunately, the curriculum was too easy for our son, and he wasn't being challanged. We were fortunate to transfer our son to CML. Not only was our son being challenged, but he loved his teacher and classmates. We pray we can enroll our daughter in a couple years when she reaches 1st Grade. I pray our principal Dr. Castaigne will remain with us for another 30 years.
Great School! Love it!!! I have compared notes with parents of a private school where my daughter used to go and the education my kids are getting at CML is much, much higher. Everyone in the school is very nice and friendly, the principal and staff members, and the teachers are exceptional! Thank you CML I'm looking forward to my daughters second and fourth grades !
This school is so big because of the principal, teachers and personel. My daughter is on 3 grade and loves this school very much. The program is incredibel and they overcome every obstacle they encounter with little money and lots of love. Helps the kids to grow academicaly and as persons, They are teh best!!!! An it is a public school!!!! They deserve it specially now that they are struggling with building problems!!!
I must say that this is my daughter first year at this school and she is a gifted student. At the beginning, I was kind of skeptical about putting my daughter in this school because they didnt have a gifted class for my child. But, Ms. D'Amour is an exceptional teacher because she really goes all out to teacher her students and my daughter learns so much. I used to have to create her own curriculum at home because the other Dade County School (Kindergarten) she was going to was not challenging her to her fullest potential. I am grateful for this school and I pray that one day Dade County build them a stand alone school because they deserve it. Keep up the great work CML.
This school is tremendous. The teachers are talented, dediated and creative. They are quality educators who really care about the children and it shows. The level of professionalism and commitment from everyone at the school (and I mean everyone) makes CML truly special. The curriculum is rigorous and the education, well-rounded. And while the building itself may is not the newest or most beautiful (shame on the district for not moving faster to give this school the facelift it deserves), the outstanding work going on INSIDE each classroom is truly impressive.
This is a great school - outstanding teachers who really care, great leadership, and a quality education. I am particularly impressed with their anti-bullying curriculum, their gifted teachers, and their first grade teachers. Ms. D'Amour, the lead teacher, is exceptional.
My daughter attended CML school for 3 years, then I moved her to a brand new school 'top of the cream' as someone told me. I just had to go that office school once to realize the mistake I had done!! I should have kept my child at the real top of the cream school!!!
Our teachers and staff do such an amazing job at making our school the best and they deserve as much recognition as possible!
My daughter has just completed her first year at cml and boy! Great school, great staff, great experience.
CML, the BEST. I have a special needs child and the staff, teachers and administrators are all aware of her circumstances and thoughtful to help her through the day. They are absolutely at the top of their game from the janitor to the principal. I tried another school, it was brand new to the area but learned it is not the facility that makes a great school it is the leadership. and CML has it ..hands down.
Love it. This school is the best kept secret in Miami Dade, FL. Great Principal, Faculty and staff. Makes me want to shout for joy. My son has been there from 1st grade - he is now in his 3rd year. I only wish the school went past 5th grade.
Awesome school, both my daughter and son attented this school and both have excelled to higher levels. The teachers are very dedicated and take the time to make sure the kids learn the material. Being a Magnet and offering gifted classes sets this Elementary schhol apart from the rest in Miami. The neighborhood is not the most appealing one but the school makes up for it. The principle, Dr. Castaigne has to be the greatest asset the school has, she's awesome. I highly recommend this school to any parent and student.
I was a student of North Dade Center For Modern languages last year and the school is extremely organized and all the teachers there are good well teaching teachers that teach you with respect. The decipline in that school is very strict. The school also has a lot of parent involvement and all the students there are all well behaved and would treat anyone well. I would really like to go back to that school I would not mind.
