Standing 4 stories tall, this will be home to about 1,600 ambitious children and the first public school in Sunny Isles.

Parents FAQs Sunny Isles Beach School
Parents and children asked the most important questions like “Will we have recess?” and “Do we have to go to School?” Answered as a firm Yes, was the new school’s new principal Annette Weissman.Formerly the principal at Ojus Elementary spent 8 years there and received an A rating from the state every year during that time.
”My plan is to have Sunny Isles Beach Community School be an A school the first year out,” she said, adding that the school will focus on math, science, and technology.
Sunny Isles Beach School Registration
Registration will open in two months, so parents get ready! Students from the established school zone can transfer automatically as Highland Oaks, Bay Harbor schools, and Ojus qualify. The school also will take in students from Sunny Isles Beach, Golden Beach, and North Miami Beach’s Eastern Shores subdivision. Those outside the area can seek a transfer through their current schools, but a spot is not guaranteed.
Sunny Isles Beach School Capacity
The school will stop taking transfers when it reaches 100 percent capacity. Classroom sizes will be capped at 18 students in kindergarten through 3rd grades. There will be 20 in grades 4th through 8th as mandated by law. Required for your child’s registration is proof of address and immunizations, along with the student’s last report card. The school will offer the encompassing curriculum required at all county public schools. This includes Spanish classes, art and music, a gifted program, and many after-school opportunities. There is a joint use agreement with the city’s community center, which has a gymnasium and a baseball field for your children.
“Everything will be functioning by the time the school opens, including a cafeteria, library, media center, and a bevy of interactive smart boards,” said project manager Dennis Caserta.
”You will be shocked and surprised by all the extras and the size of the rooms,” said Vice Mayor Lewis Thaler, who took a tour of the building.
