"Innovative, engaging, differentiated, standards-based instruction"

Morningside is the oldest school in Port Saint Lucie and has a long, deeply rooted tradition of excellence. Our gifted program is noted for its rigor and relevance. The Odyssey of the Mind program is world renowned and continues to challenge students to think. With the partnering of students, staff, and parents, the vision of the school community thrives. Instruction is traditional yet, innovative, engaging, differentiated, standards-based and designed to meet the needs of each student. Teachers are experienced, skilled in their craft, and have a deep pedagogy which helps to ensure student achievement.

PBIS–Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support

Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support is a collaborative (team-based), educative, proactive and functional process to developing effective interventions for problem behavior.

The positive refers to a change of focus from reactive, constantly pointing out what students did wrong (negatives), to proactive teaching and recognizing what children are doing right (positives).

PBIS views appropriate consequences as those that are effective in changing the student’s inappropriate behavior.

PBIS acknowledges and rewards students for following school-wide expectations and rules.  The rewards are earned for following the expectations.
