Zyscovich planned and designed this substantial modernization and security enhancement to the 65-year-old Mulberry High School, replacing the aging school with a state-of-the-art 21st century learning facility that expands the program offering to students to include engineering, robotics, agriculture, and automotive studies.
Andrea Castillo Preparatory Academy is a compact prototype located on a compact site in the City of Doral. The school’s mission is to create an engaging and nurturing environment for students that fosters the intellectual and emotional growth of the individual child through quality instruction and meaningful collaboration.
The bright, sustainable, collaborative and expandable Pershing K-8 School replaced two aging ones—Pine Castle and Pershing Elementary School—and merged student populations into one learning environment with flexible instructional spaces that promote interdisciplinary teaching, collaboration, and development.
This New School Facility is the first of its kind in more than one way, a new highly efficient and cost effective 21st Century Public School in Miami-Dade County. The mixed-use facility combines integrated housing for teachers with a multi-story middle school (grades 6-8) and provides a unique opportunity to address the need for both affordable housing and primary education in Miami’s Brickell/Downtown neighborhood.
