About Cushman School, The

The Cushman School is Miami's oldest independent day school and a National School of Excellence. It focuses on character development and educational excellence. Since 1924, the school has maintained the same philosophy of founder Dr. Laura Cushman, who felt that good citizens resulted from instilling a love of learning and teaching good character.

Interns handle a variety of classroom duties, including organizing thematic units, working with small reading groups or math groups, assisting teachers in drama, art and music and helping to plan drama assemblies. In addition, interns are encouraged to teach students about their own backgrounds, bringing cultural education to Cushman students. Interns work with three-year-olds through eighth graders.


Open to college juniors and seniors, and recent graduates. Non-U.S. citizens are eligible. An interest in education is preferred.
