Renovated M-DCPS local schools welcome students


This year, $147 million has been allocated to improve buildings across Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS). More than 60 schools have unveiled their newest additions, and among them are some local schools.

For Palm Springs North Elementary School, a total of $3.7 million was used to build a one-story building addition that will hold 10 classrooms and 180 new student stations. A Physical Education shelter was added, as well as new basketball courts and internal restrooms. 

Hialeah Miami Lakes Senior High School invested $6.7 million in demolishing portables as well as a bus drop-off addition, reparation of sidewalks and selective replacement of doors, ceilings and electric panels. Exterior painting was also part of the renovations. 

An investment of $7 million was given to American Senior High School for a variety of renovations that included new classroom technology, additional exterior lighting and new plumbing fixtures. 

These renovations wouldn’t have been possible without the General Obligation Bonds, M-DCPS and their partnership with local businesses. For more information regarding project progresses, visit
