Principal's Message

  • Bengal Families…It’s going to be an exciting and successful year at Piper High School!

    Piper High is well-positioned to make huge gains in all academic areas.  We just finished a successful year that laid the foundation for future growth and opportunities for our Bengal Scholars.  Last school year, Piper was third in all district high schools for increased scores in English Language Arts.  As exciting, we were first for the highest jump in graduation rates.  Be assured that this is only the beginning!

    Our new Cambridge Program offers high achieving students the opportunity to earn the AICE diploma, an internationally-accepted diploma administered by the University of Cambridge in England. The program consists of a rigorous, accelerated course of study through which students have the opportunity to earn up to 2-1/2 years of college credit along with the highest level of Bright Futures Scholarship! That equates to full tuition, books, and a stipend at any four-year Florida university including UF and FSU. Even students who do not choose to earn the AICE diploma may earn college credits through Cambridge.

    Piper has also made significant enhancements to our Bengal Academy of Excellence, including cross-curricular collaboration, student conferencing days, expanded electives, and curricular support through technology programs and academic initiatives.  The Bengal Academy is designed to ensure students earn all their graduation requirements, develop a post-secondary plan, and access opportunities to achieve their goals and highest potential.  After-school tutoring support will further optimize the learning opportunities for students in the Academy.

    I have recruited some of the best and brightest educators in Broward County – and the nation – to teach and support our Bengal Scholars throughout the year.  These dedicated teachers and administrators have been working tirelessly to develop and implement the academic, social, and emotional programs and support that your children need to be successful.  Our goal is to educate the “whole” child and to provide the academics, activities, athletics, and other extra-curricular offerings needed to optimize every Scholar’s experience at Piper.

    Thank you for entrusting your children to us.  We will take wonderful care of them and help them grow into successful, well-educated citizens and leaders. Get ready for a great Bengal school year.

    Warmest regards,
