I have to say that Conservatory Prep Senior High School has been a wonderful experience to my son and our family. Having a child with ADHD inattentive type in a traditional setting was not productive for anyone. Conservatory Prep was able to turn my son's learning experience around a whole 360 degrees. He was even accepted to all the colleges he applied to. Without this experience at Conservatory Prep the care of the teachers, the one on one attention, the small class sizes this would have not been possible for him. I would recommend the specialized learning to anyone that is struggling in a traditional setting, after all this is their future that is at stake! Understanding what the childs needs are important, but even more important is showing the child how to be all they can be despite those needs is a gift given to these kids. Creative hands on learning makes it feel like your not even learning. My son has said that many times, Wow I get it! He found that doing it, acting it out, writing a story, etc. other than reading it in a book works for him.
This school is one of the best kept secrets in So. Fla. The teaching method is not for all, just those kids who think creatively & outside the box. Its for the parents of those kids who want to give them the opportunity to experience the subject matter of each class as it relates to that of all the other courses they take. No opportunity to teach is wasted by Dr. Weiner or her staff. My daughter has undergone a total transformation academically, socially and personally since attending Conservatory Prep. Dr. Weiner & her staff recognize that given the academic freedom to explore, investigate and create, she and most other students discover their potential and apply it with unfettered enthusiasm. It has been my finest moment as a parent when I enrolled my daughter at CPSHS three years ago! For the first time, I can actually envision attending her college graduation some day.
My daughter went from not being interested in school, although she is an A student, to discovering that learning can be fun. She now excels because she wants to and is highly motivated. The school did it !
This school will probably change the way you think about education and your creative child will prosper in ways you cannot imagine. Our daughter in completing her second year of high school in this extraordinary school and headed for college
Conservatory Prep Senior High School is a progressive, private high school located in the heart of Broward County, in Davie, Florida, focused on nurturing inquisitive learners through a college-preparatory curriculum. Our teaching methods incorporate experiential learning and the integration of the performing and visual arts. Our school is designed to meet the needs of gifted and creative students who think out of the box, with fresh ideas. We offer a small classroom setting where students learn for mastery of content, rather than preparing for a standardized test. Students learn about the American Revolution through theater, art, music and culinary arts from that historic period. Students engage in English class while also drafting original screenplays and receiving instruction in film making. Physics is presented through a scientific exploration of the powers of superheroes, while geometry is conveyed through an examination of artistic masterpieces and natural designs. While we utilize the arts as our primary methodology of teaching, we also integrate problem-based learning into many of our classes, and concentrate on developing students' research and writing skills.
It changed my daughter for the good and I highly recommend the school of your child's interests are not just homework but life skills.
This is not a school just an expensive day care! The school gets an F- very bad school!
This is a terrible school. It does NOT teach. There is no homework, no studying, and you do not learn anything in class. The teachers are not supportive of the students. Their philosophy of "teaching through the arts" has failed. Their chemistry course in 2009-10 school year, "Chemistry through Cooking," taught no chemistry and very little cooking. In their "Geometry through Architecture" course in 2008-09 school year, they taught no Geometry and almost nothing about architecture. This school is a waste of your time and money.
Very bad school they can't even show you how you get graded! A's if they like you or F's if they don't.
I graduated from Conservatory Prep last year and I am currently a Freshman on full scholarship to the Wilkes Honors College. I was also accepted to the Honors College at FAU, UCF, USF and UNF. Conservatory Prep completely prepared me for college. Even though the school is very small, you will make friends for life. Teachers love us.
Cons Prep is amazing. The teachers really care about us and the other students are unique individuals. Since the school went away from the online schooling 2.5 years ago, the classes have been challenging, interesting and anything but boring. I am a senior and was admitted to all 5 schools to which I had applied.
I went to this school for a total of 3 months, then I had to leave and attend another private highschool. The online curriculum is unstructured and other kids and I just sat on our laptops all day facebooking and myspacing. The 4 seniors that graduated the year I went to Conservatory went to community college.
I go to this school, and overall it's one of the most life-changing schools if you stick to it, and make the adaptations for it. Truly this is not a school for highschoolsers, but for individuals who do not wish to deal with the absurdity of the whole social status of highschool.
