From Our Parents
If I could custom-make a school for my daughter, it would be The Mandelstam School. It’s a close-knit, nurturing community that also provides stellar academics, exceptional athletics and arts, state-of-the-art facilities, character development, environmental engagement, responsibility to others, and playfulness. The student body is international. Today, all schools say, ‘We educate the whole child.’ It wasn’t until we visited Mandelstam that we saw what that looks like in action. We’ve watched our daughter blossom here. Every child deserves to be this happy.
Education is the hope for our future, and this school is committed to it. The School provides a high level of academics, excellence in arts, music and theater, along with an extraordinary physical education program in the form of gymnastics. Its educational core is centered on the whole child. TMS seeks to cultivate each child’s potential as they are taught in a joyful environment. For my children, this has been a magnificent experience. They love their school!
En la educación está la esperanza del future, y este colegio apuesta por ello. Ofrece un nivel academic muy alto, exquisitez en el terreno artístico, musical y teatral, además de una preparación fisica extraordinaria. Su proyecto educative es integral, centrado en la persona. Sacan de cada niño sus potenciales y se educan felices.
The Mandelstam School is the only elementary school in Miami that addresses the education of the entire child on a daily basis–from the balance provided by the gym program, to the methodical and disciplined approach to academics, to the confidence delivered by a creatively superb performing arts program. The result is an academically smart, emotionally aware, centered and happy child. A unique place, we loved it from day one, and cannot wait to send our second child to TMS.
I think the nurturing environment and teacher to student ratio in The Mandelstam School is extremely beneficial for children who are developing their writing, reading, and math skills. Being able to establish a one on one relationship with teachers and have the opportunity to get whatever help they may need is an amazing quality of this school. My son Tyler has excelled in Gulliver Academy after attending The Mandelstam School. The preparation and encouragement that Mandelstam gives its students allowed Tyler to fit in with the rigorous academic ambiance in Gulliver Academy. The gymnastics program that Tyler took part in is also another aspect of The Mandelstam School that enabled him to become a valued player on the soccer, football, and lacrosse team. The rigorous schedule of the gymnastics program has helped him learn how to manage his time in an effective manner and be able to focus and excel in sports and school. No other school could have prepared him so well to start his next chapter in middle school.
My son has gained enormous confidence at the Mandelstam School through both theatre productions and the gymnastics program offered throughout the school year; these two characteristics make TMS unique from any other school in Miami.
