Our mission at Allapattah Flats K-8 School is to develop partnerships and maximize resources to create opportunities for learning beyond the classroom. We will provide quality instruction to facilitate academic, emotional, and social growth. We will seek to be innovators, embrace change, work collaboratively, and continually evolve in order to guide students in recognizing and maximizing their personal strengths and interests and utilize them as pathways to a successful future.
Our vision is to become a center of learning that extends beyond the schoolhouse doors, where students are able to articulate future goals and actively work towards those goals as independent learners fostered through a student centered and caring environment.

The Naming Committee
The Naming Committee for our school was dedicated to select a name that was geographically and historically relevant to our site. The Seminole Indians, who lived on the property over 200 years ago, referred to the area as Allapattah Flats. Allapattah comes from the Seminole word for alligator, hence the symbol for our mascot.
