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!
Review Broward County Public Schools
My school is just the type of school I want to stay in for the rest of my high school years. It's has just diversity and excitement. The teachers are nice, the environment is calm. Even though some students create a problem towards this environment I go to everyday to proceed with my studies. Education blooms wildly with the sources the teachers give us. I am happy to be a place where everything is just perfect. Browards schools had really evolved through the past years and everything is so different. My education has really gotten of the roof. Thank you Browards Schools!
Broward County Public Schools are in need of reform in terms of administration. I feel as if in certain public schools, they are not disciplined enough. Some schools do not give detentions, which makes students more likely to repeat bad behavior. Also, I do believe that this county needs more parent involvement, and more funding for after school programs to keep kids involved!
