The Cushman School is Miami-Dade’s oldest, continuously-operating, co-ed Preschool–12th, college preparatory, private school 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.
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
“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.
Cindy Ley Sepe
“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
“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
“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.”
