My school is just the type of school I want to stay in for the rest of my high school years. It's has just diversity and excitement. The teachers are nice, the environment is calm. Even though some students create a problem towards this environment I go to everyday to proceed with my studies. Education blooms wildly with the sources the teachers give us. I am happy to be a place where everything is just perfect. Browards schools had really evolved through the past years and everything is so different. My education has really gotten of the roof. Thank you Browards Schools!

I honestly really love the Broward County School District. I go to Coral Springs High School and the rules at the school are very reasonable. I feel they have an outstanding amount of activities for their students at the school. There are many programs that the students can choose from. No students at Coral Springs High School should be left out. There is a wide variety of sports and programs for the students to pick from. The teachers are nice and understanding and I just love the school's vibe overall. I feel very welcomed and comfortable. Coral Springs High School is very friendly. I'm a shy person and when I first came to the school I wasn't nervous at all! That is how welcoming the school is. They take preparing their students for college very seriously and that's what I mainly love about the school.

To prepare for college, schools need to set set a curriculum that teaches students about valid research, papers, different ways of writing for English, how to appreciation all subjects, annotation methods, variety of testing methods, and get ride of state exams. Broward County needs to listen to students and teachers, respectfully and with true concern. Our opinions and concerns are valid too since we are going to be a part of society soon. Schools need courses about importance and instruction of finance and home economics. Not everyone is going to a four year college, so educate students about all options and occupations. Equally distribution to athletics, core and elective classes. Female students should not feel shamed because they have developing bodies and be submitted to wear specific clothing because male students are not taught to respect women.
