Our Stories

“My daughter is encouraged to explore and investigate the world around her, to use technology to develop understanding and create new things, and to pursue her personal interests and passions. I know that I have the incredibly distinguished North Broward faculty to thank for nurturing and appropriately challenging my daughter to reach her individual potential.”


“NBPS gave me the foundations on which I could build the rest of my life. Through my experiences both inside and outside of the classroom, I was able to grow as a person. The high-caliber academic programs prepared me to succeed at university. There were an ample number of opportunities for leadership and personal expression that provided the means to develop invaluable life skills. The friendships and memories that I created at NBPS will last a lifetime.”


Teacher Highlight

After college graduation, Kathryn Marino knew that she would spend her life playing the violin and teaching young students to love music. Today, she combines both passions as a teacher for first through third grade Strings, and fourth grade Orchestra. Kathryn graduated with a bachelor’s degree in music from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York and then earned her master’s degree in music from Boston University. Kathryn believes that what makes North Broward such a special place is the supportive community from fellow colleagues and the wonderful students and parents.A fifth year teacher here, Kathryn says that she still loves the funny things her students say and gets a special joy from their “a-ha” moments. “What I love most about teaching is watching students grow as musicians,” she says. “Learning to play an instrument is not easy and, for me, hearing students figure out how to sing and play a new song is the most rewarding feeling.” Outside of the classroom, Kathryn can be found curled up with a good book and listening to great music.
