Secondary Language Arts and Reading serve to provide resources, professional learning, and support to all Broward County middle and high schools, as well as educational centers and K-8/6-12 schools. The goal of the Secondary Language Arts Department is to ensure that the Language Arts Florida Standards (LAFS) are taught with fidelity and that the reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language strands are interwoven throughout daily instruction.
In Secondary Mathematics, our curriculum provides rich, challenging opportunities for our students that prepares them for success in college and career. In our math classes, students explore and describe observations, explain their thinking, and ask questions. They are encouraged to use multiple approaches to solve problems and show different ways of thinking. It is our mission to matriculate/graduate/prepare problem-solvers who view challenges as an opportunity to think flexibly, innovatively, and efficiently.
At Driftwood Middle, our Science program allows laboratory and technological experiences to engage students in understanding the nature of scientific phenomena and how it correlates to the world around us. The middle school curriculum introduces earth, life, and physical sciences and makes real-world connections through scientific inquiry.
