    I have found Broadview Elementary to be a great school. I actually took my child out of private school and sent him to Broadview and I have no regrets.

    I love broadview. The teachers really do care. The support staff really support. I could not have asked for a better school for my son that is in the twins program. Parent involvement is pretty good. The PTO seems to run smooth and for the children not all for the teachers. I love this school!!

    The prinicpal and teachers are great at Broadview elementary. I would love to see some more extracurricuar activities.

  • (8 years ago)

    Broadview Elementary regained its 'A' grading this year. Teachers and prinicpal work hard to improve. But there are areas to improve. e.g Sunshine Maths is an advanced level Maths programs which has been abondoned due to lack of resources. Parking is not sufficient. Continual construction work around the school is a big inconvenience.

    I really enjoy my son Justin attending Broadview. For the first time in a couple of years a PTO has been started. Parents love to be involved and the ones who are not see the happiness on their childrens faces. Once the PTO raises money we look at what the children need. The last big fundraising that the PTO had was a bookfair. The children loved it and we made a family night of it as well and the parents were pleased. The extra money made from the book fair will allow each class in each grade to have books for their own library in their classroom. I know the teachers are excited about it and the students will love reading their classrooms new books.

    Its a great school- teacher are great- students learn if they are willing to...and they give their best. Its an excellent I really recomend it.

    I think it is a well organized school. They have a very good safety system in place.

  • (11 years ago)

    The principal is the best I have ever known. Very polite involved with children and school also always talking to parents. I disagree with the Special Education system and I do not like at all the Behavior Specialist they have there. Not at all. She might be a family counselor but I do not think she is prepared nor have the strength in character to deal with special kids.

    Broadview Elementary has a diverse student body with an equally diverse staff to accommodate all children attending this school. There's never a situation that can't be resolved by speaking to someone whether it be a teacher staff or personnel. Safety is a number one priority for all children inside and out with excellent safety patrols to guide and assist in any situation. No child is left behind as the teachers continuously learn new skills that keep the children 'on their tippy toes'. No one gets bored here! They believe all children should have the opportunity to expand and learn to their fullest potential. It's the best elementary school of Broward County in my book.
