My son is completing his 3rd year of elementary school at the Coconut Creek Campus. The teachers have been great so far and the academic program is very good. Mandatory Violin, Chinese, math and science courses are excellent. Your child will fit in well if he is outgoing. Some kids who are the only child have a tough time transitioning however the staff does a good job of recognizing this and providing support. Overall I could not be happier. My son has really flourished at NBPS.
Where are these reviews? Not on this web site. NBPS has been undergoing a fantastic renaissance over the past few years since it became a Meritas school. I encourage you to take a tour. I think you will find a caring, nuturing environment with excellent academics and both AP and IB programs. 99% of our graduating seniors got in to their FIRST choice colleges and universities. The fine arts program is second to none. If you don't reconsider, your children might not have the opportunity to attend one of south Florida's finest schools.
Not a review, just a question for anyone who is available to answer. We are coming from out of state and looking to move to the Parkland area. I was interested in this school until I read so many bad reviews about an angry, unhappy principal. The tuition is too high to have bad leadership. Has anyone moved from this school to Pine Crest? Would that be the better option? That would mean looking at real estate in a different area. I am looking for a private school that focuses on education as opposed to religion. I expect my kids to work, but will not allow them to be in a constant state of stress. I appreciate any suggestions.
I've been at this school since Pre-K. The teachers here are extremely committed and talented and love the students. Now that I am a senior and am moving on to college at either NYU, the University of Michigan, UF or UM, I am going to miss the incredible atmosphere and the wonderful people at North Broward.
This is my first year as a parent at North Broward and my daughter and our family LOVE the lower school. Great teachers and administration. The cost of the school is pricey, I won't lie, but my daughter is getting such a great education. Much better than she would ever get at public school.
Our daughter began attending eighth grade at North Broward this school year. After much discussion and deliberation, she left a public school that we no longer felt was able to provide her with the best possible environment for learning. I cannot say enough wonderful things about North Boward. Not only does she continue to thrive in her advanced classes, she has become very involved with the amazing fine arts program and is surrounded by caring, involved teachers. She has made great friends and we have never looked back or second guessed our decision to make this commitment to her education. She will be attending high school at North Broward on an academic scholarship and I am confident that she will continue to thrive and do amazing things!
We have one child in the high school and have found it to be excellent. Extremely caring and involved teachers, Strong and challenging academics, and a variety of extra curricular activities combine to make for a wonderful high school experience. The campus feels very safe and the small size allows the students to develop strong bonds with both teachers and classmates. We are very happy with our decision to send our child to North Broward!
Great school with challenging and varied academic offerings along with unique and interesting electives. Great leadership. Excellent teachers who care about the kids. Very involved and active PSTA. Good group of kids and a good group of parents rounds it off to a great experience all around for our family.
My children have gone to NBPS since Pre K and Kindergarten. Each year I am amazed during our Parent Teacher conferences how the teachers are so in tune to my individual children. They know their strengths and weaknesses and have found ways to motivate them to "want" to learn and be good students. I have two very athletic boys who were not so interested in academics and now one is taking AP classes in high school with a 4.6 average and the other is right behind him doing great in Middle School. I am so thankful to have the teachers and staff at NBPS be a part of the "village that is raising my children." I would highly recommend it to others who are looking for a school that is interested in helping each child achieve their greatest potential.
Because we have 3 children in very different age ranges, we have been at North Broward for 12 years. Over the last 3 years, we have seen deliberate focus and improvement in: student and campus technology, character building, IB and AP programs, faculty and student development, and "academics first, enriched by fine arts and athletics." There is tremendous three way communicaton between parents, teachers and administration so each student is accountable and accounted for. Parent involvement in the school is outstanding. I would highly recommend this school to any parent who wants their child to have a challenging academic experience while having many opportunities to become a well-rounded adult.
I have a 3rd grader & a 5th grader, and both have been at NBPS since Kindergarten. I have been extremely pleased with each and every one of their grade-level teachers. The school offers a challenging curriculum, wonderful fine arts programs and competitive athletic activities & teams. Having the facilities of the upper school available to lower school students presents them with opportunities they would otherwise not have. I wanted a school that my children could attend beginning in Kindergarten and graduate from 13 years later. I feel that I have found the perfect match in North Broward Prep!
I have a child in the lower school and one in the middle and we are extremely pleased with both. We transfered from a public school three years ago and are amazed at all of the opportunities that they have availble to them at NBPS. From extensive Fine Arts and Athletics programs to challenging acedemic curriculum that suits their individual needs. We are so lucky to have found so many wonderful familiies, students, teachers and administrators all in one place!
I am a parent of 2 high school students. The experiences have been great. The school offers so much that if your child does not take advnatange of everything then you are not getting your money's worth. If your child excels in Fine Arts or Athletics this school makes it all available. If your child is an AP, IB , Honors or takes regular classes NB has it all. When reading the previous reviews any one can see that the new owners and leadership have improved in the past couple of years. I would recomend NBPS to anyone that truly wants the best for their children.
My son just completed his freshman year at North Broward. He previously attended public school. He found the overall experience to be highly rewarding. His honors course work was challenging, but supported by a teaching staff who make themselves available to their students and show an interest in their acheivments. The school offers an extensive athletic program. They seem to take an interest in developing not only students, but preparing the kids to be good members of their communities. My son feels fortunate to be able to attend school at North Broward.
I wish I could say I love this school, but I don't. Teachers need a dress code. Better this year than last year. Something about teachers wearing open toe shoes or tattoos on the ankle (like the new lower school guidance counselor) is just not attractive nor professional for a preparatory school. Students are required to wear uniforms, but it may be a great idea for the teachers as well. School has some great qualities, but the bad outweighs the good. Sad.
Middle school is exemplary for honors students, wonderful environment, fabulous teachers, safe and nuturing.
My children having been at the lower school for 3 years now and this year will be the last. I think this should sum up how my husband and I feel about the school. Administration could use a change.
The campus is gorgeous. Feel very safe leaving kids there. However, you can't judge this school by the cover! The lower school needs major improvement. The leadership is honestly just a sad situation. Principal seems to always be angry and not very nice. Always one bad apple that spoils the bunch!
Seems parents in upper school are happy. Lower school has MUCH room for improvement. Very poorly run lower school.
We love this school! Our daughter started in her freshman year and we feel she will be very prepared for college by the time she graudates. The teachers go above and beyond to ensure that the students are successful. There are so many extra curricular activities to choose from. They offer a good selection of AP, Honors and IB classes. Our experience with the administration thus far has been positive. The college planning department is fantastic. I highly recommend this school.
