Our students learn through the arts and experiential learning. Students learned about Spain and the artist Goudi. In this picture, students are creating their own mosaic inspired by the famous artist and architect.
Our students take Latin as their foreign language and learn through music, theater and art. Mythology and ancient Greek and Roman culture is integrated into the curriculum. We have an active Latin club. In this photo the students 'let their hair down' at a recent family Greek night.
- Experiential Learning For Creative Minds independent, private school in Broward County located just outside Ft. Lauderdale in Davie, Florida, serving students in grades 7 through 12.
- The purpose of education at Conservatory Prep, the only private school of its kind in Broward County, is to foster creativity and critical thinking through the arts, hands-on experiences and problem-based learning, while emphasizing strong research, math, writing, and technology skills.
- Our students tend to be gifted, college-bound individuals who are not meeting their potential in a traditional school environment.
- Conservatory Prep Schools: A Place Where You Can Just Be Yourself Imagine- Going to school everyday where you are appreciated for just being you. Where your ideas are encouraged and your passions fostered by teachers and fellow classmates.
- Imagine- A day where you begin by being welcomed by your friends and teachers, followed by writing a play or a song in Latin.
- A day where math is FINALLY understood. A day where science is all about discovery and solving problems, rather than memorization for a test.
- A day where learning social studies includes cooking, music, dance, art and theater along with research and presentations.
- Imagine- Coming to school every day without aches and pains because you no longer worried about not understanding the homework or fear of failing an exam. Imagine- A place where you can just be yourself.

Students are given an opportunity to learn and polish their skills in a learning environment that is less stressful than what is thought of as a traditional classroom. Demonstrations of acquired learning is not limited to paper and pencil test, yet students are expected to meet the same course standards as their peers elsewhere. The cadre of teachers work together to help students gain confidence in their ability to succeed and maximize their potentials.

Conservatory Prep is a wonderful school. I love working with our students, they are intelligent, talented, and compassionate individuals. Our staff is small, but highly qualified. We strive to engage the students in high level thinking skills through problem based learning and inclusion of the Arts in every subject. Instead of tests, our students are given problem based projects and assignments that require them to think critically and creatively. The students are required to present their finished projects to their teacher and their fellow students. When our students graduate, they are fully capable of meeting the challenges that await them.

This school uses a unique approach to ensure students are prepared for college and the world beyond. The teachers and staff are caring and highly qualified. They focus on "arts-integrated education," where students show their understanding of concepts through an art component. Students will not do poorly because of a "disability". Teachers and staff will create a learning structure for each student to thrive.

Outstanding education! Quality teachers taught my daughter to become an independent learner and honed her math and writing skills. Never did I think I would see her dance, sing, paint and perform with confidence. This is a very small school filled with creative and bright kids who prefer to spend their days learning in engaging classes instead of worksheets and daily tests.

Depending on their family circumstances, our Presidents received a wide range of primary and secondary schooling.

From time to time we all wonder how things might have turned out if circumstances and situations had been different. We apply that questioning to private schools.
