Broward County Public Schools Magnet Programs and Nova Schools application period for the 2013/14 school year is now open through February 13, 2013. All Coral Springs, Parkland and Tamarac students in grades K-12 are eligible to apply.
Parents and students may choose from an array of educational options available for the next school year and determine where they would like to apply.
Interested in Performing and Visual Arts? How about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics? Perhaps Pre-Law, Pre-Med or maybe the Military Academy is more to your liking.
These are just a few of the areas of study and courses provided as part of Broward County Public Schools Magnet Programs, which focus on students’ special interests, talents and abilities.
Parents and students may also apply to Nova Schools, a K-12 national model, which promotes a high quality instruction for all students. The Nova Schools are charged with researching, identifying and implementing best practices in teaching literacy that promotes maximum student achievement.
