A NEW MINDSET
The program is designed so that students not only acquire knowledge but also apply it in a meaningful, authentic manner. This will be done through a variety of means that will include project-based learning, blended learning, face-to-face instruction, web-based tutorials, internships, real-world projects and courses determined by the student’s individualized learning plan of choice.
Students will work in teams and individually on meaningful projects developed by them and guided by advisors (teachers). Standards for core courses will be incorporated into these projects, along with goals and objectives, deadlines and presentation dates. This program allows the students to earn many of the “extras” that universities and the work force are looking for.

OUR INNOVATIVE PROGRAM
With math skills falling, reading and writing skills diminishing and disengaged students, our goal is to transform the process of how our students learn in our current educational system, to develop the skills sets students need to graduate and successfully pursue higher avenues of education and/or enter the work place. Thanks to the guidance and support of Big Picture Learning, SBBC, our Superintendent, and District cabinet members the design team of South Plantation High has launched our Pathways of Innovation that will offer students a unique, individualized learning experience.

Although we will be joining hundreds of schools nationwide that have adopted similar programs that focus on the skills needed for a 21st Century work environment, we will be the pioneers that lead this change in Broward County.
