Miami Shores Presbyterian Church School sets high standards for admission. In addition to strong academic credentials, the school seeks students with high ideals and values, those who will be motivated to fulfill their potential, and those students willing and able to participate enthusiastically in its programs. The Admission Team evaluates applicants entering kindergarten through fifth grade using the NWEA MAP survey assessment in both reading and mathematics, as well as an interview process. This screening process reinforces our philosophy by providing a constant assessment tool to provide evidence of potential success in our program.
