Greetings Parents, Students, and Community Members!

Welcome to Miami Shores Elementary School where our primary goal is to provide our students with a highly enriched and rewarding educational journey. Our school family is composed of highly qualified teachers, superb support staff and accessible administrators who are dedicated to academic and emotional excellence.  MSES continues to provide a quality and meaningful education in a safe and nurturing environment.  I highly encourage all students to challenge themselves academically by being in school every day and on time, engaging in all classroom activities, completing iReady lessons as assigned, and reading for 30 minutes each day. This goal can only be accomplished through a collaborative effort between home and school. Let’s make this connection a powerful one!

Our theme for the 2017-2018 school year is “Powered by Optimism!” Join us as we embark upon the new school year with optimism! I am confident our students will continue to grow educationally!

I am honored to serve as principal of Miami Shores Elementary School and I am looking forward to working with each of you. If I can be of service to you, please feel free to contact me. Thank you and have a super school year!

Brenda L. Swain

I would like to welcome your family to Miami Shores Elementary School. It is our vision to empower each of our students with the knowledge and leadership skills needed to make a positive difference within our society.  Our theme for this school year is “Powered by Optimism”. The faculty and staff of Miami Shores Elementary School will strive to provide a motivating, meaningful and courteous environment. All students will be given the tools needed to become active learners that access information and synthesize ideas to solve real world problems. What makes heroes and leaders remarkable, is their ability to use their power to inspire those around them. By working together, we can build and sustain an A+ education right here in our Miami Shores community.


It is a true honor to be the assistant principal of this fantastic school where teachers’ and staff are enthusiastic about the learning gains of each individual child.  I look forward to working with you for the continuous success of our children and our school.
