Our Story

M. A. Milam K-8 Center houses students from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade. The school is divided into several buildings that are the product of several additions and renovations that have taken place since 1961 when the school first opened.  Milam is located in a predominantly Spanish-speaking community in West Hialeah. It is situated on ten acres. In 1999 the conversion to a K-8 Center began, and a Middle Learning Center (MLC) was added to the existing facility.  The school receives Title I assistance, as 90 percent of the students receive free or reduced lunch.



Our vision at M. A. Milam K-8 Center is to empower all learners to excel in their academic goals, demonstrate strong core values, and become productive members of the global community.


At M. A. Milam K-8 Center, we strive to provide an atmosphere that nurtures our learners from their early stages of development through their formative adolescent years.  Our teachers and staff establish a positive educational environment for students by enhancing academic achievement, developing social and communication skills, and promoting independence and mutual respect. We strive to work together with our parents and community, knowing that this collaboration helps cultivate the whole child.
