Miami State School opened in 1979. Miami State School is committed to providing the best education possible for the range of students and meeting its responsibilities within Education Queensland.
At Miami State School we acknowledge that we can no longer teach the answers to what students will need to know in this knowledge based economy fuelled by the rapid advancement of technology. We therefore accept that our challenge is to empower our students with the capacity to know how to think and be able to talk about their thinking.
Our teaching and non-teaching team provide an excellent educational facility and learning environment. Ability is what we are capable of doing. Motivation determines what we do. Attitude determines how well we do it.
Our school vision continues to guide our efforts to deliver improved outcomes for all students within a supportive school environment. The vision reflects our values and beliefs about education and community. Our school motto is 'growing with knowledge'.
We believe that every student is capable of learning and given the right conditions for learning should demonstrate continual progress and readily experience success. By promoting high expectations for all students we challenge the notion that ‘it is unreasonable to expect more from some students'. At Miami State School we establish ambitious but realistic goals that promote high expectations for every student in our school. It is important that students take responsibility for their own learning too.
