Hoje, neste mesmo lugar, os alunos am-pliam conhecimen-tos, pesquisam nos livros, nos computa-dores e na natureza, organizam feiras, sonham, desejam, realizam e, também, lançam poesias no ar. Passados tantos anos, o Miraflores vive, com plenitude, a maturidade das experiências adquiridas, mas permanece criança inquieta diante dos desafios do amanhã. Pois, como nos ensinou nosso Mestre Paulo Freire, o futuro não é uma coisa escondida na esquina. O futuro a gente constrói no presente.
