Open House

CONSERVATORY PREP SCHOOLS: Experiential Learning for Creative Minds in grades 7-12

img

Join us on Friday morning, November 10th at our Open House. Meet our teachers, students and other parents. Broward county schools are closed so it is the perfect time to see what Conservatory Prep has to offer.

Our class size of 6-10 students allows us to cater to individual needs. Our students tend to be creative, gifted individuals who are not meeting their potential in a traditional environment. Our students do best in a multi-sensory classroom where they can delve deep into projects, integrate the arts and meet challenges in a supportive environment.

Conservatory Prep Schools has openings for the January, 2018 semester.

Courses are taught on standard, honors and Advanced Topics levels.

Fully Accredited by SACS/CASI – AdvancED

Reflection Day

Welcome Families and Friends of CPS

Reflection Day is Conservatory Prep’s version of Curriculum night. Instead of the teachers telling you what the students are learning, the students themselves will be the ones explaining.

Come to school with your child on Friday, October 27th from 8:30 – 11:30 AM and plan on spending the morning with us going through your student’s abbreviated schedule. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, friends and prospective families are invited to attend.

The FIU – 3D- Conservatory Prep Connection

Conservatory Prep students are thrilled that Florida International University (FIU) has  been working with our students to teach them how to use the 3D software. Each week, FIU architecture graduate student Ubaldo ‘Ubi’ Urrutia, shows the students a different facet of using the 3D software to create houses and other structures to enhance their school projects. Ubi prints out the student’s work during the week while he is at FIU and returns each week with their creations. Our students hate to miss school on Fridays! This coming year, Ubi will be further teaching our students to use the 3D software as part of our Friday Entrepreneur class.

Plan ‘B’ for students who need a flexible schedule

New for 2017 – 2018  is Plan ‘B’. This program is designed for students in grades 8-12 who are unable to be consistent with their attendance at school. Given the nature of the Conservatory Prep program, where students collaborate with one another with projects, integrate the arts and have hands-on experiences, missing days of school become difficult to make up.

Plan ‘B’ is designed for high school students who need a great deal of flexibility with their schooling. Science (including labs), social studies and English will be completed at the school. Students will be given packets to complete which will include a textbook and use of the computer. Math and foreign language will be taken through Florida Virtual, but supervised at the school. Students will be supervised from 10 – 3, Monday – Thursday and will work at their own pace.

Maker Space

Committing to our philosophy of arts-integration and problem-based learning, Conservatory Prep is in the process of creating a Maker Space under the guidance of Lesley University. We look forward to the fall when our students will be able to use math, science, art, and technology (STEAM) in a hands-on way to create fabrics, robots, musical instruments, puppets, animation, etc. and the list goes on. Students will be given challenges and they each may meet that challenge in a different way. The Maker Space is an exciting addition to Conservatory Prep.

ArtsEdCamp 2016

Conservatory Prep is proud to host ArtsEdCamp, which will take place on January 10, 2016 from 10:30am – 1:00pm. Please register for tickets https://www.eventbrite.com/e/artsed-camp-tickets-18992279419

Edcamp is a new education movement sweeping the country. It is an “unconference” which allows for teachers to share their best practices in teaching and for schools and educators to network. Edcamp celebrates and honors the wisdom of the teacher.

We have geared the inaugural event towards small and mid-sized schools. Arts-integration covering all disciplines will be a focus. Best of all, Edcamp is free! Please watch the video EdCamp 101.
