Welcome to Plantation

Mayor Rae Carole Armstrong

City of Plantation

Plantation Mayor Rae Carole Armstrong

As a former educator, I realize how important it is to provide students with a

broad range of education, social and community involvement opportunities to help

ensure their success in the future. Plantation schools offer accelerated classes, gifted

programs and exceptional student education opportunities designed to serve the needs

of each individual student.

Within our schools, students and parents will find specialized programs, such as

DECAL (Division of Enhanced Communication and Law) and the prestigious

International Baccalaureate program; ESE (Exceptional Student Education) and ESOL

(English Speakers of Other Languages) programs; NASA-sanctioned explorer programs;

volunteer opportunities; outstanding, nationally recognized educators; and a

broad range of extracurricular activities to enhance and enrich your child’s education.

Take a good look at Plantation schools. More than ever before, students and their

parents will find a comprehensive and complete suite of services available to enrich

and compliment your child’s education. For more information, visit the Broward

County Public Schools’ website at Browardschools.com. Or call one of your local

schools for an individualized tour.

A message from

Maureen Dinnen

School Board Member, District 3

Greetings to Plantation Residents, Parents & Students,

It is an honor to represent most of the City of Plantation on the Broward County School

Board. Broward is the largest fully accredited school district in the nation. Rated an “A” district

by Florida, Broward received the 2008 Broad Award as one of the five top school districts in

America.

Plantation public schools are some of the finest in Broward County. A variety of academic,

athletic, career, technology, and cultural programs are offered at Central Park, Mirror Lake,

Peters, Plantation, Plantation Park and Tropical Elementary schools.

Seminole Middle School’s Decal Program, Magnet programs in Classic Studies at Plantation

Middle, the International Baccalaureate at Plantation High School, and the Environmental and

Everglades Restoration programs at South Plantation High School present outstanding scholarly

opportunities for Plantation students.

Plantation’s Innovation Zones

Community centered teams for maximum education opportunities

The Broward County Public School system is

the sixth-largest public school district and the

largest, fully-accredited public school district in the

nation, serving more than 255,000 students. In

order to effectively manage such a large district, a

decision was made in 1991 to reconfigured the district

into 28 manageable, representative and

responsive Innovation Zones, or “I-Zones.” Schools

were organized in a feeder pattern to

promote a smooth, constant base of support and

curriculum from the elementary through high

school grades. Each I-Zone consists of a cluster of

schools that includes a high school, a middle

school and an elementary school.

Plantation has two I-Zones – Plantation I-Zone

(Peters, Central Park and Mirror Lake elementary

schools, Plantation Middle and Plantation High);

and the South Plantation I-Zone (Tropical,

Plantation Park and Plantation elementary schools,

Seminole Middle and South Plantation High).

Students, parents and the community benefit in

a number of ways through Innovation Zones. Zones

create a bottom-up decision making process as well

as provide more ways for parents to become

involved in the process. In addition, the Zones have

streamlined operations, created attentive administrations,

and localized chains of command. By

using Innovation Zones to decentralize the school

system rather than breaking it into smaller districts,

we remain powerful enough to meet the needs of

all our students.

By being part of an Innovation Zone, individual

schools benefit through coordination, collaboration

and shared decision making with other area

schools, involving administration, teachers and parents

in the decision making process. Schools are

now part of a team effort and share resources to

maximize opportunities and improve the education

of students.

Plantation Elementary is a neighborhood school serving children from selected areas of

Plantation and Lauderhill. Our concentration is on differentiation of instruction to meet the

needs of diverse learners. Departmentalization of subjects, in the intermediate grades, is based

on teacher expertise. School-wide technology integration occurs on a daily basis through the

use of distance learning, wireless laptop carts and Promethean Boards.

An emphasis at Plantation Elementary is placed on community involvement. Students

participate in activities with our various business partners, and partners reciprocate in many

different ways such as volunteering or providing incentives to students. The arts program

encourages children’s creativity and many projects are displayed school-wide and in businesses

throughout the community.

The Candil Jacaranda School is an independent,

non-sectarian, and co-educational preparatory

day school founded in 1979. We offer an accelerated

academic program which incorporates a

Montessori blended pathway for students of

average and above average abilities in preschool

through grade five. Our unique approach to

education allows students to benefit from a

hands-on curriculum designed to involve the

student in active learning.

The Candil Jacaranda School is fully accredited

by The Southern Association of Colleges and

Schools, The American Montessori Society and The

Association of Independent Schools of Florida and

is a Florida Gold Seal School Recipient. It is

nationally recognized by the National Council for

Private School Accreditation, and is a member of

the Broward County Non-Public School Association.

We are proud of the international composition

of our student body. Candil Jacaranda welcomes

students of all races and ethnic origin who place a

priority on learning. We have an “Open Admissions

Policy” of non-discrimination on the basis of race,

creed or ethnic origin.

This South Florida private school provides a

secure and stable environment in an academic

setting conducive to excellence in education that

develops the students’ abilities and a joy for the

learning process. Students at Candil Jacaranda

develop the habit of success through the glow of

achievement, not the fear of failure. Innate critical

thinking skills are developed by teaching students

to define problems and develop solutions. Rote and

memory are not boundaries of learning, but useful

tools in the process of experimentation and

discovery. Students in kindergarten and above wear

attractive, neat, uniforms that build pride in their

school community.

Our 24th year of high achievement test scores

results show that our students have again topped

their peers both nationwide and locally.

The David Posnack Hebrew Day School (DPHDS) was founded in 1974 with a single elementary

school. The middle school was added in 1991 and a second elementary school campus was added

in Davie, FL in 1998. That same year, the High School held its first classes, and since then, DPHDS

has grown to over 600 students, in grades K-12.

The DPHDS objective is to provide an outstanding, comprehensive general studies program that

meets the highest academic expectations as we prepare our students in a college prep and college

prep honors program. Underlying the philosophy of the school is a Judaic studies program that

provides students with an understanding of Jewish history, Hebrew language and Jewish values that

emphasize responsibility to others, and a need to contribute to the betterment of the world.

The college preparatory program provides students with the highest degree of readiness to succeed.

The school environment encourages students to extend their intellectual muscles, all the while

knowing that the DPHDS family is there for support and guidance throughout the process.

concerns drives activity at the University of Florida Ft. Lauderdale Research and

Education Center. Unique problems associated with South Florida depend on

research, education, and extension efforts focused within this area. Given the

enormous differences in environment, flora, and fauna endemic to Southeast

Florida, these efforts cannot be adequately performed in other areas of the

state. Our faculty, staff, and facilities represent a valuable local information and

resource base for the southern third of the state that cannot be effectively

duplicated elsewhere.

A tradition of academic excellence

Page 27


The City of Plantation is committed to environmental sustainability.

For that reason, we have chosen to print this book on Accent

Opaque by International Paper. It is chain of custody certified, which means the fiber

has been tracked from its origination in a “well-managed” forest, through the manufacturing

process and on to the distributor.

Additionally, the inks used are made from vegetable oils such as soya, chinawood and

linseed – all renewable sources – and are manufactured without lead, cadmium,

mercury or hexavalent chromium compounds. No animal byproducts were used to

produce these inks
