Broward County Public Schools Reviews

Broward County, and the 4 schools I attended in it, has been my home for my whole life. Every school made me feel safe and welcome. There is educational opportunities for many different preference levels, whether you move at an above average pace or need a little extra time and assistance. Broward County is a diverse and inclusive community, and I am proud to call it home. As a member of the theatre community, something I would want there to be improvement on is an emphasis on the arts. Besides that, I have to admit the food is edible at the least, but from the time I could make my own lunches I was bringing them from home any chance I got! My experience overall has been great from being raised in Broward County Schools, and I'm sure that anyone else would say the same.

A wide variety of courses! The teachers are very helpful and understanding. Ive taken many science classes and electives to keep me busy. Dual enrollment opportunities have let me start my college education for free, while also diversifying my educational environment. i really appreciate every opportunity broward county has given me.
Excellent school district. They offer great resources, and there's awesome parent involvement. Great opportunity to excel. Online classes offered are wonderful. Some schools in the district can use a little fixing. Also, I believe the professional study development days where they let out students on early release the first Thursday of the month should be reviewed. But overall, it's a great school district!
