New North Broward Lower School Families:
Welcome to the Lower School of North Broward Prep! It is my pleasure to welcome you to the supportive community of collaborative thinkers and learners that is the lower school. At North Broward Prep the faculty, staff and administration work in partnership with parents and students to foster the intellectual, social/emotional and civic development of each child in our care. North Broward Prep is a place your family can call home, a place where your child will thrive and grow.
This is such an exciting time for your family! The start of a new school year is always filled with anticipation and eagerness. I’m sure you may feel a little nervous as you begin this new phase of your child’s education, but you will soon feel like you’ve always been part of our caring and nurturing school community. One of North Broward Prep’s greatest assets is its ability to embrace new families and build new relationships. You will first experience this when your child receives a personal phone call from his or her new homeroom teacher welcoming your child to the class. These calls will be made on Monday August 20. An NBPS Family Ambassador will also contact you over the summer to assist with any parent or family questions you might have prior to the start of school.
