Dear Parents,

First, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Sarah Allison for her many years of hard work, dedication and contributions to the field of education and to the staff and students past and present at Allison Academy. I wish her the very best in her retirement and assure her that her legacy will continue for many years to come.

Shaidy Fernandez - Principal of Allison AcademyAllison Academy is a special place with caring and friendly teachers, students, parents and staff and I am honored and excited to be the principal of this outstanding school.

I graduated from Florida International University with a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Master’s of Science in Educational Leadership. I believe in working collaboratively with staff, students, parents, and community partners in order to continue the success Allison Academy has worked so hard to achieve over the years.

I will ensure that we continue delivering effective, high impact instruction to our students and that we provide them with leadership opportunities. It is important that we equip them with 21st Century Skills and the Growth Mindset tools they need in order to become Global Citizens. I assure you that the staff will continue to work to support students academically, socially and emotionally.

Our school is committed to creating a safe environment for all students and staff, where courtesy and kindness prevail, and where there is respect for differences in other people, customs and cultures. I believe in the potential of every student, and that together we must prepare them to be world class citizens by continuing to provide experiences that are relevant, challenging and that meet the needs of each individual student. I am looking forward to supporting students, teachers, staff and our community.

I strongly believe in open communication and a home and school connection.

Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have questions or concerns. As we take on new challenges and continue to meet new goals, we will surely accomplish our shared vision together of becoming the leader in education where every child succeeds at Allison Academy.

Kindest Regards,
Shaidy Fernandez
Principal of Allison Academy
