Applied Learning strives to provide students with opportunities in engaging activities that will generate interest, spark passion, increase application of skills and knowledge, and facilitate communities that cultivate productive, civically-minded members of society. We do this through six areas: Civic Engagement, Driver's Education, Music & Performing Arts, Physical Education, STEM & Computer Science, and Visual Arts.
Civic Engagement supports students working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities through Debate, Scholastic Chess, and Global Education.
Broward County Public Schools is proud to offer a robust Driver's Education Program. Classes are held in fall, spring, and summer sessions at 15 different sites throughout Broward County.All sessions are open to students of both public and non-public secondary schools. The program is also designed to meet the needs of students with varying exceptionalities and physical abilities.
Broward County Public Schools is committed to providing world-class music and theatre education to all students and strives to ensure access to the opportunities and cultural resources necessary for cultivating skilled creators, communicators, and collaborators through the arts.
The physical education program emphasizes the development of fundamental locomotor, non-locomotor, and manipulative skills through the main content areas of movement education, educational games, dance, and gymnastics.
In Broward County Public Schools STEM classrooms, students use critical thinking skills and creativity along with their knowledge of science, math, engineering, and technology to solve problems and generate new ideas.
The primary goal of the Visual Arts program is to enable students to develop their minds and intellectual capabilities using all forms of creative intelligence. Through an integrated, interdisciplinary approach, the arts provide a safe environment for the evolution and resolution of ideas.
