Located in Parkland, Florida, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (MSD) is part of the Broward County Public School System and serves 3,200 students from Parkland and Coral Springs. Additionally, the school is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools.
An “A” rated school, MSD is well-regarded for the broad range of classes it offers. From 21 Advanced Placement and 51 Honors classes to several specialized programs including culinary, JROTC and business. In fact, MSD is home to an NAF, Academy of Finance Program that graduates some of the most impressive students in the State. Additionally, students are also permitted to dual enroll and take classes at Broward College. Ninety-six percent of the graduating students attend college.
After School Activities
After school activities are equally as diverse and well-respected. The students, whose mascot is the Eagle, participate in more than 50 clubs and organizations on campus, including award winning music and drama programs. (Fun fact, the Eagle Marching Band won “States” this year.) There are also seven honor societies including a very active National Honor Society. Finally, the school offers 30 sports at the varsity, junior varsity and club levels, many of which have experienced significant success. The Varsity Baseball Team were State Champions in 2017; Anthony Rizzo of the Chicago Cubs is a notable MSD graduate. The student body is extremely well-rounded and involved.
Parental involvement and support is considerable. The school has an active PTSA as well as SAC and SAF organizations. Additionally, many parents volunteer to assist with the broad range of extra curricular activities by judging debate tournaments, assisting with the DECA program or participating on one of the many booster clubs that help support student activities.
Portions of the student bodies from Westglades Middle School in Parkland and Coral Springs Middle School, in Coral Springs, feed into MSD. The schools work closely together to ensure a smooth transition including academics and activities.
