It is a cute school, but not one of any academic strength. There is a large ratio of teachers and staff that are parents or grandparents to students. It has not been challenging to my child academically. The faculty and staff are very nice. This school is not spectacular and not worth it for us.
Grandview is a small school with marvelous caring teachers and an ability to tailor curriculum to the needs of each child. The atmosphere is one of community - all the kids, parents and teachers know each other and look out for one another. Extra curricular activites are quite diverse for such a small school. High school teams are competitive adding positively to school spirit. If glitz and glamour are key to you - this is not the right school. Grandview offers a great private school education with small class sizes in a nurturing atmosphere. Our children have thrived here.
Grandview has high academic standards and, despite its location in wealthy Boca Raton, FL- it promotes strong 'Mid-western' values- My children love the teachers, participate in many of the strong athletic programs and earn good grades and test scores... who could ask for more?
Grandview has come a long way in the past several years. Teachers really seem to care about my children's success and understanding of what is being taught. Even though the middle and upper school is small, my kids have learned so much. The teachers are very creative with their lessons and my children have learned hands on. This approach makes learning much more impacting. The administration has an 'open door policy' and have been very open minded when bringing up ideas. This has made me feel very comfortable where I feel I am a part of my childrens education. Teachers post weekly progress reports on Edline so I know everything that is going on from assignments to HW to upcoming tests. This young school really has it going on!
Grandview is a great school. It is a small, friendly place that offers excellent academics, a great sports program, a plethora of extra-curricular activities, and a terrific community service and international exchange program. Grandview gives your child the opportunity to excel in many different areas and become a well rounded person.
Grandview has been a place where my children can grow both personally and academically. Strong personal attention. Middle and High school is small but excellent. Great community service and character building...amazing staff. Could benefit from more community exposure and support.
great quality of teachers in the lower school, awesome music teacher, awesome phys ed, great after school and school shows, could use more after school excerise options caring and welcome parental involvlement. Good parents committee to raise money and have family oriented events lower school principal great, overall school has a very friendly accepting and welcoming feel to it -- committed to making the kids feel special
Grandview offers excellent academic programs in a small campus setting. Lower school classes average 15 students. The small setting allows for a 'family' atmosphere which is very nuturing and allows for individual attention to students. My children have greatly benefited by the structure and size of Grandview. The school has numerous music, sports and other extracurricular activites for all grade levels. My children participate in Tae Kwon Do, Swimming, Glee Club and Band. Other activities, clubs and teams include golf, baseball, basketball, lacrosse, tennis, dance teams, drama, yoga, volleyball, swim team, academic clubs and others. Parental involvement is high with many social events held throughout the year. Emphasis is on 'family-friendly' activities. We have greatly enjoyed our Grandview experience.
Very good school with small classes (less than 20 in a class) parent involvement encouraged and easy builds confidence with the smaller kids - works to make them feel part of the school family. Excellent primary grades teachers - supportive and enthusiastic
Great small school community atmosphere where faculty and staff will recognize not only students' faces but parents as well. Small teacher/student ratio. Strong lower school; needs to build on upper school matriculation. School seems to be just starting to get off its feet though it is 7 years old. There is great potential though.
My children love the small class sizes, the individual attention and the warm 'family-like' feeling that they get when they go to school.My kids were there for pre-k and are now in kindergarten and they are thriving in this nurturing environment. We are very happy there. The school is great!
Grandview School has put in an enormous amount of time an effort to not only provide the best education but to making it fun for the students as well. They really listen to everyone parents and students!
The best thing about Grandview Prep is how my son has been given individualized attention by teachers and administration. This has helped him achieve academically, socially and has helped him develop important life skills.
