Lincoln-Martí is an institution dedicated to educating the future of our community, both academically and socially.
We, at Lincoln-Martí believe that the quality of any nation, state, city, community and family must be judged by the preparation and advancement of the individuals who comprise them.
Our system of education is based on the philosophy that successful student growth and development depends on the rationale for guiding such growth. We recognize that children need to develop their need for freedom, but within limits. Lincoln-Martí has prepared an environment which guarantees exposure to materials and experiences that promote the development of the intelligence of each child, as well as, each child’s physical and psychological abilities.
Students are respected as individuals and they learn to respect others. The needs of the individual are strongly emphasized. They are exposed to activities involving freedom of choice. Yet students are taught in classrooms to facilitate the socialization process. Students are free to create friendships and learn to respect each other within a loving and friendly environment. Love is fundamental to the development of the whole child.
The Lincoln-Martí family gives its students the opportunity to work, study, and participate in activities that facilitate their adjustment to a new culture and prepare them to become self-sufficient within it.

Only hours after the United States unleashed its atomic power upon Hiroshima, Japan, and on the same day in which the Soviet Union declared war against Japan; in the city of Matanzas, Cuba. Demetrio was born under the name of Demetrio Alberto Pérez Jr. His parents, both educators and PhDs in Education, undoubtedly influenced Demetrio to pursue such a career. Chalk dust and blackboards at an early age reinforced his vocation to educate and for public affairs.
The historical development of Lincoln-Martí in Miami dates back to the 1960’s when Castro tyranny in Cuba forced Demetrio Perez, Jr to immigrate to the United States. His parents who were educators in Cuba followed soon after. The Perez family quickly started to work in the field that they only knew, education.
