Grandview Preparatory School is a small, diverse community committed to the philosophy that education is a personal endeavor. Grandview pairs timeless ethics with modern thought and personal attention with global consciousness while preparing students for college and life beyond. I am often asked what sets Grandview apart from other schools, and my answer usually centers on the fact that a Grandview education truly is a personal endeavor. Education in the modern world requires attention to the individual learner. In an increasingly impersonal era, it is uncommon to stand face to face, to talk one on one, and to listen heart to heart. At Grandview, the size of our school and the personal relationships among students, faculty, and families guarantee that no one is lost in a crowd. Grandview students develop strong leadership skills because leadership grows from confidence. Confidence grows from practice. Practice begins with participation. Our students participate in all aspects of school life, taking intellectual risks, challenging themselves in an effort to grow.
Grandview is so much more than a school. While the academics are vast and tailored to each student's needs, the attention to the student as a whole is immense. I feel blessed to be able to be a part of the Grandview family and think any child who attends is at a huge advantage.
Second year my son has been here at Grandview and we just love it. All the staff are great and everyone is so helpful. The classes are small so kids get great teacher attention.
One of the most important things about Grandview Preparatory in Boca Raton is the fact you can e-mail the teachers. They will respond, they care about the students. The school is small enough that they know each student by name. The school stresses learning the skills to work as a team, with students of all ages. I feel this is very important as we all need to know how to get along with others when we enter the work force, or anything else we choose to do in life. I am happy to say bullying is not tolerated- this was a problem in the large public school and no one seemed to have a solution there. I would rate this school very highly.
We just love this school, the staff, the curriculum, the aftercare everyone is just so friendly and caring. Very up with the changes in the real world and eager to keep up with the times. Pool and other sports facilities are excellent.
Grandview is a family. This small school offers children a warm, nurturing environment along with a solid learning atmosphere. It is nice to know that your child is never a number - everyone knows their name. From Pre-K all the way through to high school, the kids know and respect each other. It is also comforting to see that character building and creative thinking are valued along with academics. Teachers educate the whole child - and all of the various components - not just the part that can memorize the facts for the test. The extra-curricular offerings are fantastic with greatly successful middle and high school teams. Coaches have won state championships and trained Olympic athletes. Music, dance, theater and art offerings are exemplary. Kids have fun while they are learning and learn to have fun. Grandview is a great place to be a kid - or an adult. Teachers, children and parents alike are happy with the atmosphere at Grandview. Our children have thrived in this setting.
This is our second year at the school and we love it. I have kids in grade 4 and 5. The teachers are wonderful, helpful and all around fantastic. When there is an issue it is dealt with right away. Both of my children have commented on different teachers saying that they inspire them. The teachers are all very passionate. The only thing I wish is that there was lower school sports. I could not ask for a better school.
Our school Grandview Preparatory is warm loving and nurturing enviorment. The staff is amazing the teacher give 120% of themselves. The word no does not exsist, when it comes to the knowledge that each teacher gives to every student . The parents are always included and notified of every aspect of your child's education . I travel a long distance and it is worth every minute. My daugter loves school and is doing well. She made the Dean's List and has a 4.22 and that is honors classes. Also she plays 3 sports. They have a great athletic program and if your child needs help they are always there to help them along. Our family is proud and honored to call Grandview our school.
My School is amazing everyone is family. You can't walk past the hallway without a little kid smiling, getting a hug from a teacher, or a conservation with a friend. Its a amazing school. you are not a number like in a public school, you a person and apart of the family.It great cause yours kids can learn beyond what FCATS. do to you. They don't even have Fcats here!
We have two kids at Grandview Preparatory School. Our younger student began last year and our older one started this year. We are very happy with all the school has to provide. They are receiving an excellent education, healthy lunch meals provided by a dining company, safe environment, enrichment galore, and learning to be great citizens! We love the small size classes and individual learning plans. Grandview Preparatory School is truly a gem. Families in the area should consider this school for their kids.We are glad that we did!
Hi I am a parent at Grandview, my daughter has been going to this school since 3rd grade, her achievement and her interest in school is sky high. She loves this school and is doing very well, she puts her 100%. Not only that my daughter loves this school but she feels like she's at home, and what I mean by that is that shes very comfortable at this school, the teachers, the students, the staff all know each other and if my daughter is walking to her next class a senior who who knows my daughter will say hi. This school is not only very friendly but, very family oriented, you feel like your at home. Its a loving environment. Everyone know everyone. Its a good feeling.
My kids (middle & high school) have been attending Grandview for 3 years and I can honestly say, for the first time, they LOVE school. The dedication of the teachers and staff is truly amazing. We were afraid that moving to a new state and a new school would be traumatizing but he wonderful, caring teachers and staff are the reason the transition was almost seamless. The classes are small which allows the teachers to give personal attention to the kids. If my kids need extra help in a class, their teachers always make themselves available to help them after school. The communication is second to none. I get lightning fast email responses, even at night and on the weekends! Yes - some of the teachers have kids who attend the school - this is common in any private school. Not once have my kids ever told me that the children of staff members get treated differently than anyone else. In a nutshell, Grandview not only offers a challenging curriculum and fabulous performing arts program , but also teaches values & self esteem so the kids grow up to be respectable, confident young adults, that are well prepared for what lies ahead after graduation.
Grandview Preparatory School is an exceptional private school. While there is a rigorous academic program at Grandview, the emphasis is on the capabilities of each individual student. The teachers are always available to discuss a student's progress and respond to emails promptly. The teachers and staff really care about each and every student. Teachers will provide extra help after school if necessary. There are fair disciplinary rules, and procedures in place. Students are given every chance to succeed. The principal, Jaqueline Westerfield, is an outstanding leader who guides the teachers and staff in a professional manner. The parents are given the chance to get involved in GAP, volunteer activities and in other ways. Grandview is a close-knit caring group of teachers, students, parents and staff that are not only focused on excelling in academics, but in personal development and moral character as well.
It is an honor and a privilege to be able to write about Grandview Preparatory School in Boca Raton, FL. They provide a setting that enables each child to develop into the best person he or she can be. They provide a setting that goes way beyond the class room. They make sure that each individual is not just prepared for college but prepared for life. I believe the biggest critics in the world with regards to any educational institution are the students themselves. When asking my son how do you like Grandview, his answer was simple " I love it".
There is no other school like Grandview in Boca. Exceptional staff and the campus is beautiful. This school goes beyond basic academics and really focuses on the child as a whole. Their character virtue program this year is amazing and they are always looking for new and exciting ways to teach the students. One of our favorite things is the House Color system. This bridges the gap between the lower and upper schools and the kids love it! We've been here 3 years and we are very pleased.
Grandview has done amazing thing for my children. Their curriculum and other activities are superior to other schools. But, the most important is the kindness of every single person at Grandview. My children love Grandview Prep!
I have been an employee at Grandview for 8 years. In addition to being an employee, my granddaughter is enrolled here in the 9th grade. She has been here since 3rd grade. Grandview has allowed her to flourish as a student and as a person. Her teachers through the years have been outstanding in, not only their teaching methods, but personally as well. They are all compassionate, understanding, helpful when needed, and care about their students. My granddaughter always tells me that she adores her teachers and she loves being a student at Grandview. In addition to the academics, Grandview has the most amazing dance program, arts program, performing arts program and offers private music instruction as well. We have a Director of Guidance who is absolutely incredible with her knowledge and expertise in guiding our high school students as they prepare for their college years. As a staff person at Grandview, it is a pleasure to work with all the people who make up the Grandview family. And that is how we feel about Grandview. We are a family.

We have two young boys ages 4 and 5 and started them both at the same time at Grandview Preperatory School (GPS) earlier this year. We chose GPS because we were looking for a school whose focus is on community as much as it is on academics. We fell in love right away after meeting the teachers, administration, and also other parents who had kids attending GPS. Since starting the school year we have been impressed on every level, but the most important validation for us has been the feedback from our two precious boys. Out of the blue, they remind us again and again how much they love school, their teachers and friends. They are enjoying the challenging atmosphere that is provided in a loving environment. This is a small school and your child will not get lost in the focus but become and integral part of what the school believes in, and that's character. We look forward to many productive and enriching years and being an active part of the community. Sincerely, Ianca Flores
