West Lakes Preparatory Academy, a new K-8 Center, serving Miami-Dade County’s newest communities of Aragon, Bellagio, Bonterra and AquaBella located in the North-West corridor of Hialeah. We will provide a learning community that maximizes the academic, creative and personal potential of all its students. In addition, we will provide an educational environment that bridges the gaps between textbook knowledge, practical application, and abstract thought, while inspiring and stimulating intellectual curiosity that will guide our learners throughout their lives.
The vision of the West Lakes Preparatory Academy is to establish an educational partnership with the home, school, and community that provides students with an optimal learning environment. At West Lakes Preparatory Academy, the students learn about various cultures and build relationships through classroom activities and lessons. We host cultural activities for Hispanic Heritage month and African American History month. Students will identify and research the countries of their parents’ origin during Hispanic Heritage month. The students and their teachers will then dress and present the information researched. Through these endeavors, teachers and their students continue to build positive relationships.
WLPA is a small school, all staff members are assigned to designated areas before, during and after school to ensure the safety of all students.
