About THE BILTMORE SCHOOL
Originally founded in Coral Gables in 1926, The Biltmore School is the oldest operating preschool in Miami Dade County. Our school enjoys a tradition of educational excellence that has provided guidance to children for close to eighty years.
Our Principal, Gina C. Duarte-Romero and our Biltmore Faculty members are actively involved in the “Project Zero” project sponsored by Harvard University that promotes creative thinking, encourages children to be self-reliant, and empowers them to think “outside the box” through a challenging curriculum that incorporates instruction that maximizes the multiple intelligences, individual learning styles and modalities. Through participation in ongoing professional development workshops in partnership with Florida International University, our staff under the guidance of our director actively explore “Visible Thinking” strategies that promote the highest levels of intelligences, abstract, and critical thinking in children of all ages.
