Davie Public Schools
Davie is served by the Broward County Public School district. The School district maintains 326 public schools serving over 260,000 students. Overall, the district has an aggressive strategic plan which focuses on three goals: high quality instruction, continuous improvement and effective communication. Specific, measurable indications of success have been set in each of the three goal areas.

Magnet Schools in Davie
There are 38 magnet schools in or near Davie. The magnet schools offer a range of educational themes and cover prekindergarten through high school grades. The magnet schools offer in-depth education in specific areas of interest.
Broward Virtual School
Another unique offering is the Broward Virtual School (BVS). The Virtual School is fully accredited and recognized by colleges and universities, and is free for Broward County residents. Students can attend the BVS on a full-time basis for grades K-12. Home-schooled students can attend on a part-time basis for grades 6-12.
This educational approach gives all students access to a quality education that is individualized to their specific requirements. The Internet and other distance learning technologies provide an educational opportunity that might be denied to some students if they needed to attend one of the district’s K-12 schools. In 2010, the Florida Department of Education rated the BVS an “A” – the first and only virtual school to have received that honor.
Davie is also the home of over 45 private schools. The private schools include Montessori schools for preschool and elementary students, Christian, Islam and Jewish-based schools and schools with no religious affiliation. You can see a full list of private schools at GreatSchools.org.
