Broward County Public Schools Reviews

My experience at my Broward County Public School: Pompano Beach High School was overall amazing! I feel completely ready for college because of the pace and rigor of the curriculum. The teachers did a phenomenal job at preparing us for college professors while still accounting for the fact we are teenagers. My teachers had great personalities that made students feel comfortable when expressing themselves. One issue I had was the racial tension at the school amongst students. We’ve had problems combatting the excessive use of racial slurs that make the minority students feel very unsafe while trying to pursue their high school education. It is very important that school is seen as a safe place to expand your mind and not a place you fear due to racial discrimination.

Best schools in this county! I have attended up to seven schools in Broward County, and I have to say I have a great experience. The superintendent is really involved with the students in the school board. Students learn in their classes and are actually prompt and intuitive. The high school that I graduated from was Everglades High School, and let me tell you, this high school was one of the best schools I’ve attended.
There are such amazing people there! I loved it there since it had a great atmosphere and food. The culture revolves around selflessness and kindness. Students are taught with an emphasis on compassion and courtesy. There are a lot of resources here such as pencils, pens, and chalkboards. They really care for the education of the students as well as their proper understanding of moral values.
