PPCMS-W does it again! On Tuesday, April 1, 2014, Dr. Michael Olson, a representative from the Florida Department of Education School Of Choice Office, presented Ms. Flowers, Mr. Castellano and our entire leadership team an award for being chosen to be among the top three out of 144 schools as an exemplary school. This means that our teaching and learning are above and beyond – so much so that the Department of Education would like to tape some of our classes and showcase them to the entire state on how to implement the Florida State Standards! The Aventura City of Excellence and the Tallahassee School of Arts and Sciences were the other two school selected. When asked why our school was chosen, Dr. Olson said immediately, “Student engagement. It is clear that students express themselves and are participating in class.” Thanks, Dr. Olson! A professional television crew visited our campus in May 2014 and we are anxiously awaiting our debut on the state website!
