Mr. Raymond Sands, NGES Principal

Welcome back to the 2014-2015 school year.  Our goal this year is to improve student achievement in reading, writing, math and science. Your help is needed to achieve our goal.

We need you to make certain that your child  is well prepared for school everyday with their learning tools and their home learning activities.   We invite you to come visit our school and teachers.   We are working hard to beutify our campus and become the BEST elementary school in Miami-Dade.  Our PTA is doing an outstanding job and you are invited to join our PTA and EESAC.   It is a great time to be a BULLDOG...hear us GROWL!

"I am honored and privileged to serve as the Assistant Principal at Vann Meter K-8 Center. I have been blessed with the opportunity to be part of the positive changes that have transpired over the years such as transforming from an elementary school to a K-8 Center. I look forward to continuing our growth while collaborating with students, teachers, parents/guardians and community members.

Vann Meter K-8 Center provides a safe, nurturing learning environment for our students while preparing each individual for high school. Attaining high academic achievement and celebrating our diversity is a daily mission. Our committed, dedicated faculty strives to provide our students with opportunities to develop into self-directed, lifelong learners and future leaders."
