Empowering Innovators of Change
The Cushman School empowers our students to discover their passions and realize their true potential to become Innovators of Change in an environment that is both ambitious and joyful.
The Cushman Difference
The Cushman School is the oldest, continuously-operating, co-ed pre-kindergarten through grade 12, college preparatory, private school in Miami, Florida that continues to innovate, inspire and engage our next generation of leaders.
We graduate energetic, courageous, resilient, creative students with the ability to apply knowledge in fluid ways with an entrepreneurial mindset.
We empower students to develop meaningful relationships in a diverse and inclusive community, both on campus and beyond, rooted in kindness, empathy, integrity, acceptance and understanding.
We inspire our students to become confident, ethical leaders,
who not only take responsibility for their own physical, financial, and emotional well-being but who are also committed to contribute positively to their communities.
We engage our students in a purposeful, inquiry-driven curriculum inside and outside of the classroom that fosters critical thinking, creativity, problem-solving and life-long intellectual curiosity.
What Sets The Cushman School Apart
The educational environment at our school fosters in students the qualities of virtue, responsibility, respect for self and others and nurtures the student in intellectual, physical and spiritual growth.

From The Cushman Community
“Highly recommend for all kinds of students! Too many high schools stress competition and overachievement to the detriment of creating a wholesome community in which students can learn. This combination can be discouraging to some students and teaches others that their humanity is less important than creating a “resume” of achievements. If student well-being and personal relationships are something you value in addition to academic excellence, then Cushman is the best high school in Miami for your teen.”
“I love the familiar faces!
I learned to be kind and courteous above all else!
I loved the story I could share with my child and that we have three generations of women attending the same school!”
Almuni – Class of ’98
“We had always heard wonderful things about Cushman, but had not considered it because of the distance to our home. When the high school was opened in 2017, our home situation changed and Cushman became an option. How I regret, not coming here sooner! This has been an such an incredible experience. The academics are extremely challenging. The teachers are superb and the faculty feels like an extension of our family. We only have one more year left in high school, and I can truly say, I will miss Cushman dearly!”
“My son is now thriving in college due to the supportive, personalized education he received at Cushman. The faculty’s ability to engage students both in-person and virtually ensures that students everywhere can receive an excellent academic foundation and be challenged to look at the world around them via learning experiences like the SAM programming.”
Parent of Graduate, Class of 2021
“It was important to both Mimi and me that she attend Cushman High School because we wanted to continue in an environment where it was clear that strong academics grounded in the respect for one’s point of view, kind and courteous behavior, leadership skills and caring by all.”
“We’ve been a part of the Cushman Family since Juliet started kindergarten at five years old. Cushman has surpassed our expectations not only in academics, but, just as importantly, in creating, supporting and enhancing the whole child.”
“Cushman is far more than a school; it is a loving environment allowing each child to have the safety and stability to be the best person and student he/she can be.”
“As the saying goes, it takes a village, well Cushman is the best village ever! It’s actually a second home where everyone cares, and love is abundant – it’s family. There is no school anywhere else like it in the world.”
