FIU and M-DCPS to host press conference for opening of MAST@FIU

Florida International University and Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) will hold a joint press conference with FIU President Mark B. Rosenberg and M-DCPS Superintendent Alberto Carvalho to mark the opening of MAST@FIU, a magnet school on FIU’s Biscayne Bay Campus in North Miami Beach. MAST@FIU is the only four-year high school on a university campus in Miami-Dade County.


Following the highly successful MAST model at Virginia Key, Hialeah, and Homestead, MAST@FIU will emphasize the sciences and leverage leading FIU faculty in the School of Environment, Arts and Society to enrich the students’ learning experience. This partnership supports the state objectives to have more STEM graduates in Florida and build on the successful relationship between the two institutions.

The press conference will take place at FIU’s Biscayne Bay Campus in North Miami Beach, 3000 NE 151st St., 33181, North Miami, on Monday, Aug, 19, 2013 at 8:45 a.m.
