About

The GFLedu.org website is part of an initiative spearheaded by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, in partnership with the Broward County Public Schools; a consortium of the county’s private, faith-based, and charter schools; area university presidents; and educational and economic organizations, groups, and individuals. We are united in our belief that the state of education in Greater Fort Lauderdale/ Broward County is worth talking about and is a topic anyone considering a move to the area wishes to discuss.

Greater Fort Lauderdale’s robust educational system provides a strong foundation for the region’s high quality of life, offering a wide array of programs to meet the individual learning styles of students and their families. Along with high-quality public, independent, and private schools, the region’s colleges, universities, and vocational facilities are committed to creating career opportunities and building a skilled workforce.

This website’s purpose is to provide easy access to top-line data about the county’s educational resources, and a portal to each individual school’s website for more in-depth information. To learn more, contact Randall Deich, Director– Talent Attraction and Education, at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance at 954-627-0128 or email [email protected].
