Dear South Miami Heights Elementary School Family,

As principal of South Miami Heights Elementary School, it is with great anticipation that I welcome everyone back for another great year. We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning.  It is our mission to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners, prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century.

Our excellent team of educators is ready to meet the needs of individual students and to challenge and motivate them. We are excited about the awesome learning opportunities for students as we work diligently to ensure their social, emotional and academic growth. At South Miami Heights Elementary School, young minds are being developed to excel and to be productive citizens in our changing society.

Communication is very important to our school. Please follow us on Twitter and Instagram to receive information; as well as our website. We do our best to keep the website up to date with pertinent information.

Our school is a place where all students will be safe, well-behaved and eager to learn. Learning and respect are expectations for all students at SMHE. We look forward to a dynamic year of teaching and learning because we are “Collaborating and Advocating for Students’ Excellence!”

Your Partner in Education,

 Dr. Yolanda Green- Samuel, Principal
