Dear Parents and Visitors,
As the proud principal of Coral Reef Elementary, I would like to welcome you and express how happy I am that you are visiting our web site. I hope it will help give you a glimpse of our amazing school and why I boast that it is the "happiest" place to learn.
Coral Reef Elementary is a wonderful place for students to grow educationally as our staff is committed to high expectations for all students while providing an enriching learning environment. In every way that schools are measured, whether it is academically or socially, we excel. This is evidenced by achieving an "A" grade on the Florida Department of Education scale for over 18 consecutive years, a feat that is not easy with curricular standards continuously changing and increasingly rigorous state assessments. Just as impressive the numerous accolades that CRE have received. Among them is achieving the Gold STEM School designation, being recognized as a School of Excellence by the Department of Education, being recognized as a National PTA School of Excellence, and achieving the Five Star Award. But perhaps the award that we are most proud of is having our students recognized for the “Do The Right Thing” monthly contest. This recognition is a testament to the moral fiber of our students who continuously demonstrate outstanding character.
Coral Reef will join the remainder of Miami Dade County Public Schools in focusing on the four defining principles of 21st Century Learning.
• Core Skills: Four C's
(communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking)
• Digital Fluency
• Applied Data
• School Culture
It is the combination of phenomenal staff, amazing students and wonderful parents who make Coral Reef Elementary simply the best. In an era where parents have a plethora of educational options, we are honored to be entrusted with educating their children.
CHRISTINA L. GUERRA, Principal
