We have something for everyone!

School-aged children living within Broward County are assigned to a school based on their primary residential address and grade level. This is the child's boundary school. We understand families want to have options for their child's education, which may include a choice other than their boundary school. Parents may request for their child to attend a different school during a School Choice application window. Broward County Public Schools offers the following choices:

Magnet Programs
Magnet Programs:

offering in-depth experiences in specific areas of interest

Innovative Programs

Nova Schools
