Known as the Bobcats, student-athletes participate on over twenty teams and are supported enthusiastically by the student body.
Parent involvement is welcomed. The school has an extremely active PTSA, which sponsors a number of events and scholarship programs. Parents are also encouraged to become involved in the school’s SAC and SAF committees.
Silver Trail Middle School and a portion of Glades Middle School feed into West Broward High School. Administration and staff at all three schools work closely to ensure that the transition to high school is a smooth one.
