Broward County Public Schools Reviews

As a current senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, I really enjoy the school. When there are problems, the administration handles them very well. When it comes to teachers, I have no negative remarks. They make the classroom experience enjoyable. They are very helpful and willing with their work. I appreciate that I have learned so much during all four of my high school years. Another positive is the large selection of clubs and activities to be involved in at the school. The sports are also great, but I hope for a better boy's tennis team. As a varsity tennis player, the coach could be better. The players basically lead the team. Our tennis team has great potential if we have a better coach who puts more effort. In general terms, Marjory Stoneman Douglas is an amazing public school!

I have had a tremendous experience with the Broward County School system. From as far back as elementary school, Broward County has shown great interest and faith in their students by providing all necessary resources, such as books, computers, top-of-the-line educators, and much more! Without the care and effort of Broward County, I would not be the outstanding student I am today!
Having been a BCPS student my entire life, I have a very solid opinion about the district. Though it certainly can use some improvements,as every school district likely does, I am overall very satisfied with my experience. BCPS emphasizes its value for student health. In every Broward County Public School I've attended, there have been endless opportunities given to students to improve mental and physical health. This is shown through the district's nutrition oriented menus, free breakfast for all, healthier choices in vending machines, and many more dietary solutions. Students are encouraged through an array of extracurricular sports activities, as well as through the requirement of physical education. The guidance department has always made itself known by offering students assistance in things as simple as class changes and college help, to more serious situations like social work and academic aid.
