Ruth K. Broad is an A-rated school that has been at the top of academic lists in Miami-Dade County for 13 consecutive years. Our students take PRIDE in themselves and their school. Yet as proud as we are of our achievements inside the classroom, our vital outdoor areas aren't making the grade. From rusted play equipment to antiquated "old school" designs to deteriorating playground surfaces, our recreation areas are physically unfit. We need to raise the bar for health and wellness, just as we've done for education. That's why the Ruth K. Broad PTA has launched a capital campaign called Pride Outside. Our goal is to raise enough capital to rebuild our outdoor recreation areas for our children and our community. This is why we're reaching out to all four of our neighbors – Bay Harbor, Bal Harbour, Surfside and Indian Creek – and asking everyone to come together to raise the funds we need to restore Ruth K. Broad's Pride Outside.
