The NBPS provide great education for children, although it's ran like a very profitable business, it's worth it.
Horrible school that has now turned into a commercial business deal.
This school is woefully mismanged and scattered. The teachers have a VERY high turnover, subject matter is scattered and many of the teachers are uncertified and out of subject area. The dean is a bachelor level educated administrator with no prior experience. His office does not communicate with the parents. The owner is hands off and more interested in nice buildings and sponsoring cruises for students. Facilities are nice but academics are horrible. There is a special needs school and a main stream school and discipline is not consistent. High tuition, low quality.
Excellent academic program, with a boarding component. The campus is exceptional -- beautifully landscaped with modern buildings. They have an excellent lap top computer program and the latest in technology. Academic standards are very high.
This is an excellent school. Academically challenging and disciplined, yet nurturing as well. The quality of the academic programs is high in math, science, english, reading, and social studies. The music program is terrific as children are taught from an early ge and given ample opportunity to participate in bands and ensembles. The arts are also stressed. There is an excellent theater arts program. The school's sports programs range from teaching little children about sportsmanship to competitive interscholastic programs. There are many extracurricualr activities from which a child can choose. There is something for everyone. Parents are very involved in the school and the school encourages parents to take on active roles in the school. Finally, character education is also stressed. This is an area woefully lacking in many places, but not here.
Quality of the teachers is on the decline as good teachers leave in droves, particularly at the H.S. level. The school is more interested in appearances (beautiful campus), but tolorates poor education quality for high tuition.
The North Broward Preparatory Schools provide endless opportunities for their students including the performing and visual arts, athletics, countless clubs, and a top-notch educational curriculum including Advanced Placement courses, honors courses, and internships. The school also allows students to explore various areas of interest during interim session. Trips throughout the country and the world are offered as part of interm sessions as well. The schools facilities are top-notch, and the campus is beautiful. The cost is a bit high, but the opportunities available make the school worth the cost of attendance. The school has an excellent college guidance program that truly simplifies the application process. The only downfall for North Broward is that there is faculty turnover on a regular basis. It makes one wonder how well the school cares for and treats its faculty/staff.
This school is above average in comparison to many of the other private and public school out there. My children are very happy, and love going to school daily; a 6th and 9th grader. It is a safe environment and school rules are enforced. The school encourages as much parent participation as you want to give. The PTA is a very established, well running group, annually gifting to different departments,where the need is. The teaching staff is good and in most cases will schedule extra time for a student needing tutoring on a difficult subject. But the student must request this time. Like any school there have been a few teachers that weren't top quality, but no school is supreme on this.
Two of my children have gone to NBPS and I have found it to be of exceptional quality. The teachers and studends know each other by name and face. The quality of the education is excellent with many high caliber teacher on staff. The most distinguishing feature this school has is its high moral standards. They have an honor code that is talked about daily. The students are expected to treat the school and each other with respect. This is extraordinary. The campus is beautiful and looks like a college campus. They thoroughly prepare the students for college life.
