Mission: Quality education.
Programs: The cushman school impacts the miami community in many different ways. The cushman school founded and curates tedx youthmiami, a community event and platform for children and young adults between the ages of 6 and 25 to share ideas worth spreading. Participants represent the public and private sectors from elementary school through and beyond the college years. The cushman school offers scholarship programs to children who wouldn't otherwise be able to attend the cushman school. Not only are the children impacted, but also their families. Cushman cares is a parent service based group. Cushman cares collects items (not money) and gives back to the community. The different service projects include our partnership with douglas gardens home for the aged, a canned food drive for thanksgiving (donations go to the community partnership for the homeless) a holiday gift drive for the needy, a technology drive for schools in haiti, a book drive and blood drive. The reach of cushman cares is felt throughout the city. The cushman middle school is involved with many community outreach programs, including the ronald mc donald house. The cushman school guidance counselor teaches the importance of industry, courtesy, scholarship and responsibility. Going hand in hand with these virtues are community service. The students are taught that they live in a global community and they need to be responsible for it.
