Broward County Public Schools Reviews

My experience with Broward county schools have been great. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience at any other school. I graduated high school from one of the best schools in the country, Cypress Bay High School. They have so many opportunities for every student. It is a very populated school but everyone fits right in! The staff is amazing and they are there to really help you out and not just get a paycheck. Im so blessed I got to attend the schools that i did.

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!
Broward county has some of the best teachers in the world. Beyond the ability to guide you through each lesson, they are understanding and will be willing to help you if you fall back on an assignment or too. Dealing with many AP classes, this is a great help. The buildings are constructed with organized beauty and begins to feel like home right away. Overall, I would rate Broward county schools as one of the best in the nation!
