Miami Lakes District and Curriculum
The Miami-Dade County Public Schools is one of the largest school districts in the U.S. and consists of schools located in the Miami area. The ultimate goal of the curriculum is to teach students how to think; students learn how to hypothesize, persuade, and negotiate on an abstract level, developing conversational skills in their target language as they go along. The acquisition of linguistic structures that are descriptive in nature is promoted as well so they have a full range of communication skills.
We currently cover the following Miami Lakes-area school district: Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Miami Lakes District Curriculum
Miami Lakes Middle School offers two magnet academies for students who wish to pursue specialized interests. The Legal Studies Magnet provides a basic curriculum in the areas of law, public administration management, and public safety. The students explore the American legal system as well as several legal-related careers. The Cambridge Academy is defined as “a school within a school” and is an Advanced Studies program for middle school students. The magnet is very intensive and rigorous, with integrated courses of math and science in the prestigious Cambridge Academy.
The Language Arts program has focused on teaching the basic principles of reading and writing. The department allows students ample freedom to study their preferred grade-level appropriate texts so that the reading experience is regarded as enjoyable rather than burdensome. Students are expected to develop skills in writing for a diverse audience base, maintaining and developing an extensive vocabulary, and understanding sentence structure and form.

Chalk Talk: School Issues: School Start Times
In the education sector, there is some controversy over the start times for students in middle and high school. Traditionally, in the U.S., high schools start (and end) the earliest, followed by middle schools, and finally elementary schools. However, studies have shown that teens would greatly benefit by starting school later. With high schools often starting at 7:30 A.M. or earlier, it is difficult for teens to get the amount of sleep they truly need (at least eight hours and perhaps more) to do their best in school. With high school students participating in after-school sports and other activities as well as holding after-school jobs, it would be difficult to shift start times, as students would get out of school much later. Therefore, while change doesn’t seem to be on the horizon, parents need to do what they can to make sure their adolescents are getting enough sleep.
