About Us

Royal Palm Elementary is a public school in the Miami-Dade County Public School System. With approximately 590 students, we have been consistently rated an A+ school by the Florida Department of Education. Our students learn in a loving, nurturing, and supportive environment. Our instructional staff is certified and professional as they make learning come alive for all of our students. We are demonstrated winners at educating children since 1956!

Most of our students demonstrate proficiency and show learning gains in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science on the statewide assessments. In 2012, the FCAT Writing Scores of our students were the highest in the state. Every classroom has a group of computers and an interactive white board. Students use technological programs such as Imagine Learning, Gizmos, i-Ready, MyOn, Accelerated Reader, and Microsoft Office among others. We want to prepare our students to be responsible citizens in a technological world.

We are proud that we have teachers who are officers in teaching organizations, published authors, speakers at professional conferences, grant writers, adjunct professors at local universities, and award winners. Royal Palm’s teachers are often called upon to provide training for teachers from other schools.

At Royal Palm Elementary, we have an excellent team of special area teachers. Our students are given the time and energy to develop their talents in art, music, Spanish and physical education. They are given wonderful opportunities for success in our modern media center.

Just walk around our campus and see the beautiful tile murals our art teacher has taught the students to do.

Come to our musical shows and watch our students sing, dance and act.

Listen to our students using the skills taught in our Spanish program which offers them a solid foundation in their native language.
