Principal’s Message

Dear Key Biscayne K-8 Center Families,

On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you and our students to a new school year at Key Biscayne K-8 Center. We are excited to have the students back in the classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning.

As the school principal, I am eager and excited to begin what promises to be a very successful school year. We are proud to continue the path to educational excellence as we enhance our curriculum while aspiring to engage and prepare all our students through Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM), with a Bronze Designation awarded in the 2022-2023 school year. Cambridge International Education will be incorporated through school-wide interactions and classroom activities along with the Extended Foreign Language Program beginning in Kindergarten through fifth grade.

The 2023-2024 school year’s theme is “Find Your Inner Shark” which promotes a growth mindset for our students and staff while encouraging the creation of a positive school culture developing attributes in our learners that will allow them to succeed academically and through social-emotional learning. It is our goal for every child to feel welcomed, connected and part of Key Biscayne K8 Center, “Home of the Sharks.”

As a team, we believe that your support will be instrumental to the realization of these objectives. We thank you for the opportunity to be part of your child’s education as we nurture their potential and look forward to a healthy, safe, and productive school year.

Educationally yours,

Julissa Piña,
