West Broward is a modern school with updated equipment, technology, and programs. It offers several Career and Technical Education courses, which allow students to become industry certified in the corresponding fields, such as Early Childhood Education, Marketing, Engineering, TV Production, and Veterinary Assisting. WBHS has a positive and effective environment that encourages students to live "kinder and gentler" and be lifelong learners. Teachers and staff are knowledgeable and will assist students as much as possible. There are so many active clubs and organizations students can choose to be part of! Examples include Key Club, Student Organization of Anatomy and Physiology, various National Honor Societies, Band, and DECA. Its sports teams are successful and improving even more. West Broward has a welcoming environment where all students can feel accepted and motivated.

West Broward High is a great place to attend! Administration keeps the parents updated via email and text messages. Many clubs and activities are offered and open too all students. Most teachers that attend the school are awesome! And school spirit is important with many pep rallies and lunch games. Yet with all schools, there are sine disadvantages. The food served is not at all good, diversity is lacking due to the school being primarily white, and parking is a joke when security is not paying attention too who is entering the parking lot. Other then a few minor problems that could be fixed, the school is overall one of the best schools in Broward County!
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.
