The Department of Secondary Learning services 116,145 students across Broward County’s 76 middle schools, high schools, and educational centers. This department is dedicated to ensuring the development of a rigorous curriculum across all academic content areas, the selection of appropriate and research-based educational resources, the implementation of classroom tools necessary for student entry into digital citizenship, and the professional development of teachers and administrators in the pedagogy needed to guide students to college and career readiness.
The focus of the Department of Secondary Learning falls heavily on the seamless transition of student curriculum from the elementary schools into the district’s middle schools, as well as the vertical alignment and matriculation of students, resources, and academic pathways from the middle schools into the high schools. We offer a multitude of opportunities for Broward students to accelerate their education via Advanced Placement coursework in all content areas, dual enrollment college courses, academic competitions at the local, regional, state, and national levels, just to name a few.
The Department of Secondary Learning subscribes to the philosophy that all students deserve the right to build an educational resume that suits their personal goals and needs. We design curriculum for all students—from those that are looking for additional assistance to those that that need to accelerate beyond the boundaries of traditional grade levels. Whether moving onto higher education or preparing for a rewarding career, Broward students are provided the resources, teachers, and educational guidance to find success in all of their future endeavors.
