Our Mission, Vision & Core Values

“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school." - Albert Einstein


The vision of the North Dade Center for Modern Languages (CML) is to develop an academically enriched environment, preparing our students to become contributing citizens and global thinkers in a multicultural, multilingual society.


The school's mission is to prepare all students for the challenges ahead by providing an academically enriched environment. We encourage creativity and promote analytical and reflective thinking. It is hoped that our students will acquire multicultural experiences and mutual respect on the road to becoming multilingual and multi-literate citizens in an increasingly internationalized workforce.


We pursue the highest standards in academic achievement and organizational performance.

We build positive relationships through honesty, respect and compassion, which enhance the self-esteem, safety, and well-being of our students, families and staff.

We foster an environment that serves all students and aspires to eliminate the achievement gap.

We honor the diversity of our community by working as a team to ensure the educational success of all of our students and recognize that our obligations go beyond our professional responsibilities to promote democratic principles.
