American Heritage School of Broward County is an independent, nonsectarian, and co-educational college preparatory day school for grades Pre-K3 through 12 with approximately 2800 students. The upper school (grades 7-12) has a student population of approximately 1600 students. The school was founded in 1965 to serve the fast-developing residential communities west of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The wooded 40-acre campus and colonial style complex includes our award-winning fine arts program that is housed in a 100,000 sq. ft. facility with a 1,000 seat Proscenium Theatre, black box theatre, and spacious studios for all areas of the arts and surrounded by our sports fields, Olympic- sized pool, and quiet courtyard areas. Our 10,000 square foot state-of-the-art media center houses four interactive classrooms, 150 computers, and 60,000 volumes of books and reference materials. We also have four brand new technology integration labs in the Lower School. American Heritage offers financial aid, scholarships, and faculty tuition benefits to approximately 21% of the student body for tuition expenses.
The college preparatory curriculum at American Heritage serves students of above average to gifted intelligence and aims to develop critical thinking skills, problem solving abilities, and lifelong learning. We believe that our students should develop aspects of themselves in addition to academics. There are over 85 student clubs and organizations, and multiple service opportunities on and off campus.
