Academic Program

At North Broward Preparatory High School, your child will rigorously prepare for college through challenging academics, honor classes, AP and IB classes, and enrichment programs.

Our traditional college preparatory curriculum ensures the opportunity for each student to realize his/her full potential in an atmosphere that motivates academic excellence.

Our experienced teachers and counselors lead a full range of classes and an excellent college placement program, complete with college advisory services that focuses on helping your child gain admission to their top choice university.

NBPS weights grades, offering a greater GPA reward to students who engage in a more rigorous academic program.

Below is a description of how our College Prep, Honors, and Accelerated courses differ in terms of content, process, and work products.

Note: Most universities recalculate a student’s GPA using their own weighting systems.

Additionally, some universities’ GPA calculations include different courses from the ones that NBPS includes.

The most selective colleges tend to include only academic courses.

If you are concerned about how your GPA will be calculated by a particular university, contact their admissions office or your college advisor.

Course Counseling

Every incoming Freshman and all new students to NBPS High School will receive a one on one course counseling session with a member of the High School Administrative Team. Students currently enrolled in NB High School, will be recommended into the next level course by their teachers at the end of each academic year, and students and families will have the opportunity to make elective selections each spring for the following school year. Any NBPS High School student who would like to discuss their scheduling options with a member of the High School leadership team, can always do so by making an appointment.

Course Handbook

The Course Handbook is your child’s first resource for making wise course choices. Course offerings may change due to staffing or student interest.

You may also consult a great team of administrators, guidance counselors, college advisors and teachers who are ready to advise you with course selections as well as the college admissions process.
