Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to David Lawrence Jr. K-8 Center for the 2017-2018 school year. We are proud of our success; having grown as a family and a community. As we begin our 12th school year we are excited about the many challenges that face us as we travel on the Path to Success.

David Lawrence Jr. K-8 Center is a state-of-the-art school. Our highly motivated team of professionals is determined to cultivate and enrich your lives as we continue to SAIL into the future.

David Lawrence Jr. K-8 center is a Marine and Science Technology themed school and a professional development center for the Florida International University's, College of Education and College of Marine Biology. Additionally, educational programs have been designed for this school year that aim to advance curricular expectations and healthful nutritional practices.

Our greatest resource, however, is you, our diverse student body. Our students represent a variety of cultures, socio-economic realities, and levels of academic proficiency.

As your school's principal, I invite all of you to carefully review the Parent/Student Handbook, chart your own course, and prepare to set SAIL toward broader career opportunities and personal satisfaction.



Bernard L. Osborn, Principal
