FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (January 22, 2016) — Fort Lauderdale Preparatory School is pleased to announce that they are being honored as they celebrate 30 years of educating South Florida students. FLPS, located at 3275 West Oakland Park Boulevard, will be recognized by the Lauderdale Lakes mayor, vice mayor and city commissioners at the Tuesday, January 26 commission meeting. Mayor Barrington A. Russell, Sr. will be signing an official proclamation designating January 26, 2016 as Fort Lauderdale Preparatory School Day.
Established at their current location since 1986, FLPS offers a traditional college prep education to students from Pre-K through 12th grade, in a supportive environment that recognizes each student as a unique individual. Founder and school director Anita Lonstein notes, “I have seen so many changes in education over the last 30 years – from curriculum updates to the advent of computers and the internet as successful teaching tools – but one thing hasn’t changed, our commitment to our students. Our teachers and staff work to instill a life-long love of learning and this concept has helped almost 500 graduating students go on to become successful and productive members of their communities. We are so honored that the City of Lauderdale Lakes is recognizing our commitment.”
As a private, family-owned school, FLPS works to keep class size small so that every student gets individual attention. This devotion to academic excellence translates into 98% of their graduating students being accepted into colleges across the country. In addition, FLPS has met the criteria of an A-rated school for the last 25 years, and holds 4 accreditations including SACS, NIPSA, MSA-CESS and NCPSA.
