Originally founded in Coral Gables in 1926, The Biltmore School is one of the oldest operating schools in Miami Dade County. Our school boasts a tradition of educational excellence that has provided guidance to children for over 90 years.
Our Director, Gina Romero and our Biltmore Faculty 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 maximizing multiple intelligences, individual learning styles and modalities. Through participation in ongoing professional development workshops in partnership with Florida International University, our staff under the guidance of our director actively explore Visible Thinking strategies that promote the highest levels of intelligences, 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 is also accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools and the National Council for Private School Accreditation. The Biltmore School has also been an IB World School since March 2012 and offers the IB Primary 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.
