Opened in 1928, Miami Senior High has played a role in the lives of generations of citizens throughout Miami, the state of Florida, and the nation. The once beautiful and elaborate school has been slated for major renovation and modernization, a project for which M-DCPS is committing significant resources. Known as “The Biltmore of Education,” its design includes grand interior spaces, open courtyards, colonnades and fountains.

The Zyscovich Education Group has fully analyzed where and how to uncover the original design and to place the required additions. The new plan balances preservation of the historic school while optimizing the existing facility to meet present-day teaching requirements.

The firm is working with community leaders, M-DCPS and stakeholders in a way that allows all to share in the vision of the school’s rebirth. Now that the master plan and concept designs have been approved, Zyscovich is producing the construction documents.
