Originally founded in Coral Gables in 1926, The Biltmore School is one of the oldest schools in Miami Dade County. Our school enjoys a tradition of educational excellence that has provided guidance to children for the past 90 years.
Our Principal, Gina Romero and our Biltmore Staff members are actively involved in the "Project Zero" research initiative, sponsored by Harvard University that promotes creative thinking, encourages children to be self-reliant, and empowers them to think "outside the box" through a challenging curriculum that incorporates instruction that maximizes the multiple intelligences, individual learning styles and modalities. Through participation in ongoing professional development workshops in partnership with Florida International University, our staff actively explores "Visible Thinking" strategies that promote the highest levels of abstract and critical thinking in children of all ages.
During the 2007-2008 school year our school was awarded accreditation by AISF (Association of Independent Schools of Florida), SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) and CASI (Council on Accreditation and School Improvement).
The Biltmore School has also been an IB World School since March 2012 and offers the IB Primary Years Programme and is currently a candidate school for the IB Middle Years Programme.
The Biltmore School believes that students are capable and knowledgeable agents of their learning. We feel that it is the responsibility of the educator to be both the partner and guide in the growth and development of the child. It is through much research and collaboration that our school has embraced and synthesized diverse educational views and practices to best benefit our students.
The Biltmore School offers a comprehensive program for students from age one through eighth grade.
