Four new locations for adult education

To better serve the adult education needs of our community, Broward Community Schools has opened four additional locations to provide convenient, neighborhood access to adult residents who want to earn their diploma, learn to speak or improve their English and develop or increase job skills.  Tuition-free classes are offered in ABE (Adult Basic Education) adult high school diploma classes, GED (General Educational Development) Preparation, and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages).

Students can register for adult education classes and start the same day.  Enrollment is available on an on-going basis to best serve the needs of adults.  For more information, please call  754-321-7600 or visit (  The new locations are:

Douglas Gardens North, 705 SW 88th Avenue, Pembroke Pines.  Residents at this housing complex now have the opportunity to learn or improve their English onsite with ESOL classes.

Olsen Middle School, 1301 SE 2nd Avenue, Dania, offers daytime ABE, GED, adult high school diploma, and ESOL classes.

Sunrise/Weston Community School Annex (formerly Cypress Bay High School Annex), 270 North New River Circle, Sunrise.  This facility offers daytime ABE, GED, adult high school diploma, and ESOL classes.   Hallandale Adult and Community School shares this campus as part of their Off Campus Learning Centers.

West Broward High School, 500 NW 209th Avenue, Pembroke Pines offers evening ABE, GED, adult high school diploma, and ESOL classes.  West Broward High School will also offer several Lifelong Learning classes in aerobics, computer training and jewelry design.

Adult High School Classes: Great Option for Diploma Seekers

For adults who just need a few credits to complete their high school diploma, all Broward Community Schools are now offering computer-based (APEX) adult high school classes to make earning a diploma as convenient and accessible as possible.  Students enrolled in adult high school diplomas classes are able to work at their own pace either in-class or at home.  For more information, please contact Yolanda McNeill, Guidance Director, at 754-321-7600 or E-mail: ().

Eco-friendly Moves

As part of an on-going decision to become more eco-friendly and utilize different means of informing our residents about class offerings at community schools, Broward Community Schools recently ended publication of the Broward Educator that was delivered to households for many years.  Broward Community Schools now offer a range of registration and information options.  Class schedules are available each term at all community schools, county libraries, various community centers and public facilities.  Online registration, complete course descriptions, E-newsletters and much more information about programs are available at (  Course information, locations, and other information are available in English or Spanish at our info line, 1-800 NEW GOAL.
