West Broward High School Reviews

The school created a beautifully open environment perfect for social interaction between fellow students and the staff members, the grade-based principals being very attentive to the campus and it's students! With an incredibly impressive array of different electives to chose from and surprisingly in-depth main courses. You'll meet teachers of all kind, but most are focused and willing to make genuine effort towards teaching the students what's needed to succeed out in the real world (with whatever its is they choose to do!)
I do believe that the school should involve more interaction between the school and the parents, especially when it comes to the students behavior and learning specifications. There were many instances where the school faculty would react in such a way to student based affairs that were unprofessional and unfair, as the parents were not informed of the faculties actions towards/against the students well being before action was even placed.

I love how diverse my school is. We have several clubs and honor societies for everyone! Spanish Honor Society, Video Game club, Gay Straight Alliance, National English Honor Society and Speech and Debate (just to name a few). Our school as a whole is very supportive, and one can see how united we were during the several walkouts are school participated this month in honor of the Stoneman Douglas victims. The only thing I would say my school could improve is an expansion on courses. We have a lot of great classes available but a lack of foreign language classes. I have been lucky enough to be apart of our Spanish program, but I would have loved to learn French or even Latin!
My experience at West Broward High School was incredibly amazing! I love the fact that my high school has so many electives, such as band, music, art, engineering, culinary arts, veterinary class, childcare class, and health science. There are so many clubs and organizations as well. I had joined a chemistry club and art club. I believe that our high school will definitely continue improving on electives and high education. The one club that I wish I had created during my high school years was a Bhangra club. I hope someone will be able to fulfill this, especially since we already have difference dance clubs.
