My son's kindergarten teacher was truly wonderful. The xmas concert was great!! However, there was a real lack of communication from the school so we moved him this school year. I also felt that the school has decided to teach "to the test" at the expense of creativity/problem solving. Also, we were new to the county and surprised of the lack of field trips. That may not be the school's fault though.

My son is in Kindergarten at Boca Elementary and I have been so happy with our first year there. My son adores his teacher and loves going to school. He has learned so much, it has been incredible to watch his progress. i have been fortunate to have time to volunteer in the classroom throughout the year to see first-hand how loving, encouraging, patient, and creative the teachers are in the Kindergarten program especially. Every teacher and staff member I have encountered is friendly and helpful and seem genuinely thoughtful about e students there. The principal and vice principal know all the kids by name. Our experience has been overwhelmingly positive. We are moving to northern Florida for work and so sad to leave Boca El but I highly recommend it.

My grand daughter was taken out of Morikami Park Elementary School to attend her home school, Boca Raton Elementary. The frosting on the cake was seeing Mrs. Elf as the schools new principal! We loved her leadership, availability and values at MPES and know she will bring the same attributes to Boca Raton Elementary. The first two weeks of school have been amazing. My grand daughter is thriving. The only negative I noticed was the lack parents at last nights open house. This school is the hidden jewel in Boca Raton!!

I Love this school. Have been through all the grades with 3 different children. Teachers are very involved and caring. Class sizes are small. The school itself has the very latest high tech equipment. Very pleased with the school.

This school is great. I have been very pleased so far with the teachers, the tuition and the class sizes. They have a very active PTA and the school itself is clean and new with lots of computers available for the students. I highly recommend this school!

unsatisfactory.Teacher can t even handle the student that they have from in boundary let alone students coming in on the choice program. Old and new administration has done nothing to improve this school. Definitely not a school I would recommend. Not many people trying to get into this school anyway. If you are applying on the choice program you should not have a hard time getting in. Nobody else wants to send their children here.

Nice city school. Friendly office staff and the teachers are great. I would recommend this school to anyone applying for lottery. Aftercare can use some adjustments however I still would not recommend the aftercare @ Boca Raton Elementary. Other than that a nice school to attend.

My son has been attending there for 2 years now. He loves it and so do I... But be ready for the 'Boca' parents and attitudes. I think the after care program is horrible. the teachers hes had were great. He's learned a lot...the principal could be warmer and the vice principal is not on sight or visible. I think the teachers need to be closer to the parents in working together...Over allif you can handle the stuck up 'boca' vibe there, youll be ok...

I regretted applying to this school through the High Tech Magnet Lottery system. I subsequently transferred my child to another school in Boca. This was a big disappointment as he was doing great in private schools and had to change schools because of low expectations and not enough 'technology' opportunities as stated in the Magnet Program description. I hope not to be disappointed down the road with Don Estridge Middle School.

Not happy with the school. Mediocre after care program The teacher is mediocre too. I wish I had decided on a private school instead, I feel my daughter is wasting her time there instead of learning and using her time constructively.

My daughter will be entering her second year at Boca El as a first grader. She loves the school and so do I. Very personable and attentive staff which is really what teaching is all about!

I have had 2 daughters come through this school with flying colors. Excellent teachers, & curriculum both academic and otherwise. My youngest, 9 yrs old is in grade 4 and has been in the school since grade 1 and is a principal honor roll student. Congrats to the school. I highly recommend this school.
