Welcome to Gloria Floyd Elementary, where your child will join a community of learners in a safe, healthy, academically enriching, environmentally minded and collaborative environment. Our goal at GFE is to ensure the future success of all our students through a balanced approach focused on providing deliberate, authentic, and purposeful classroom instruction.
Additionally, GFE prides itself in fostering an eco-friendly and healthy environment for all stakeholders. We have established an environmentally sustainable action plan in efforts to reduce the schools’ ecological footprints. The action plan includes: a school wide recycling program, energy conservation initiative and partnerships with external organizations such as Small Bites and the National Wildlife Federation Eco Schools USA.
We also partner with the Miami Dade County Youth Crime Watch Program (YCW) to develop responsible citizens. Furthermore, the MDCPS School Police Department educates our students in security matters, values, and decision making. Our school has been recognized by Miami-Dade YCW program for YCW - Teacher of the Year (2016); YCW - Principal of the Year (2017) and YCW - School of the Year (2018). The Florida’s Department of Education (FLDOE) has also awarded our school with the Golden School Award for the three consecutive years. An award bestowed upon schools with a multitude of volunteerism and parent involvement. Gloria Floyd Elementary is also honored to be one of 31 schools in MDCPS that has earned the FLDOE’s Five Star Award presented to schools that have shown evidence of exemplary academics and community involvement.
At GFE we understand that to accomplish excellence for our students and school we must work collaboratively as a team. As educational partners, we share the responsibility for each child’s success.
I invite you to partner with us and visit our website to learn more about our school.
