Miami Shores Community Church School

For over sixty-four years, our aim has been to provide both an excellent childhood education and also the loving care that all children need.  The Miami Shores Community Church School is a ministry of the Community Church, which is governed by the church. The school is a non-profit organization.  As our church welcomes all, so does our school.  Children from all races, creeds and religions are accepted for enrollment and treated equally.

Our teachers and assistants are experienced and well qualified.  We are licensed and conform to all governmental regulations. In addition to the regular curriculum, we offer field trips, assemblies, dance, gym, Spanish, music, computer classes, and much more.
