South Broward High School Reviews
My heart goes out to the teachers and personnel at South Broward High School. Four of my family members have graduated from SBHS spanning over 40 years. Many of my personal friends went to SBHS. Living near the school gave me the opportunity to listen to the "drum beat" of the school and always read about the success of the students. The teachers are the "pulse of encouragement" to engage students for success. From academics to sports to clubs, SBHS finds a way to get students involved in school and community.
Every day challenges are met with a "new day approach" and how can we make it better for the students. "We" meaning all the people who work at SBHS. Parents of the students who attend SBHS have high expectations from the teachers, to teach our kids to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Teachers do go home tired at the end of the day, but they are on task the next morning ready to start a new day. I know this because I taught at SBHS for my final ten years of teaching before I retired.
