This school is based on facts like Childhood should be Cherished & Honor really means something.The owner of this wonderful place started it because there wasn't a school that had the same thoughts on education & values as she did so she built one that did.The school opened in 2003 & now its first full graduating class is going to walk across the stage in June.This school shows what school should have been all along.You can't walk through the place without feeling a sense of family.It runs on Love & is based on doing the right thing.Where else will you find K-12 in one building, no more than12 students per class, life skills, current events, recess & the ability to stroll past the rescue dogs that wander the halls is part of everyone's day.No one will work harder to help your child succeed as long as they are willing to put forth an effort.Who could want more for their child.These children excel through the excellence & compassion of the entire staff.The staff is made up of good people.The staff is happy, the Kids are happy, and they are learning more than how to pass a test. They are learning how to be a Benefit to the planet instead of a drain.

Thank you Baldwin Prep for welcoming us back with open arms. We made the mistake of leaving BPS for what we thought were going to be "greener pastures." We spent the 2013-2014 school year at another private school, only finding ourselves disappointed, and regretting our decision everyday. We won't make this mistake again!! We are at Baldwin Prep until high school graduation. To the administration at BPS, thanks for giving us a second chance. We are excited to be back among your phenomenal staff!!

I just read a poor review of this school and can't believe someone would say such nasty things because their child is no longer there. First, 99% of Baldwin's graduates have gone on to the college of their first choice. Most of their teachers have their Masters or their PhDs. The staff really loves to teach and the kids love school. What more could you want? My kids have been there for the last 7 years and they have been given an outstanding education. Baldwin Prep educates the whole child by teaching good manners, values, and character along with academia . The school is filled with good, happy, well educated children It is just too bad that some parents don't want that for their children.

We did not have positive experience at Baldwin Prep. We are well versed on education, but mistakenly enrolled our child into a school in which not all the teachers are certified and frankly, the material in some subjects were below grade level, or at least in our child's case. We know from which we speak because our child lost ground academically, particularly in English, writing, and reading. When enrolling into a private school, questions must always be asked such as, teacher certifications, origins of curriculums in core subjects, and how the school gages the effectiveness of curriculum(s). What particular standards do they follow that are documented or can be substanciated? The school is so small that almost entire grade level(s) are grouped together. There is little or no class variety for students showing aptitude in specific academic areas.

I am a parent of an elementary school student at Baldwin Prep. I didn't happen on this site by accident. I was told about it from another parent. I found myself nodding in agreement with the positive reviews and shocked by the negative review. My child did come to Baldwin reading below grade level, and overall disliking school. The staff at Baldwin changed all that! I didn't expect miracles...I know that a school can't fix three years of public school errors. I am happy to say that my child is learning, making progress and happy. If you are interested in knowing more about Baldwin, go and see it for yourself!

Public School was holding my daughter back, this year she has shot ahead in both math and reading. Loves going to school and can't wait for Monday's on the weekend. Her teacher communicates with me EVERY day!

After a few years of having a terrible experiance at public school we thought we would give baldwin a try. It was one of the worst decisions of our life. The school is VERY far behind public school and the material is very old and out dated. The teachers and administrators play favorites amung the kids so bad it discusts me. If you arnt part of their social club you get picked on and chastized by not only students but also staff. Inexperianced parents teach classes and they often miss class for other activities. The building was very old and dirty and over all this school was a bad experiance.

After a horrifying year in public school, my daughter went from failing and very low self esteem to a straight A student, This is the best school as far as I am concerned. They take the time to explain the material to your child and pass the information on to the parent so everyone is on the same page. Our family only looks forward to many more years here at Baldwin Prep.

My wife and I are over joyed with Baldwin Prep School. Our son needed more challenge in his academic curriclum, and due to the wonderful staff at Baldwin, and the small class sizes, we are getting exactly what we needed. I love the fact that everyday, for the high school students, they begin with current events, ..talking about what is going on in the world and debating issues. Baldwin Prep is the perfect combination of structure and warmth. Please note that their address on this site is incorrect. Baldwin Prep is located at 200 Castlewood Drive in North Palm Beach, Florida. If you feel that your child's current school is not meeting your needs... Do yourself a favor, and check out Baldwin! We have been very happy with them for three years!

baldwin prep has been the best decision of our daughter's entire life we took her out to try public school. her freshmen year through junior year. Public school was a nightmare. We are so thankful for baldwin prep school. And their attuide to allow our daughter to come back an attend her senior yr as apart of the family. It has been a breath of fresh air an restful nights our daughter actually looks forward to going to school now. Thank God for Baldwin, anyone who said they didnt have a good year there they must be uneducated an not family minded.Special thanks to Mrs.Baldwin and all she does. -Mrs. Jones & TheJones Family

My daughter has been attending this school for the past 2 years and not only has she excelled in all her subjects but her self esteem is through the roof, she truly loves going to school now! My son will be attending this school this year and is so happy to be part of the BPS family! The teachers are caring and communicate with you on a weekly and even at times daily basis. The classes are small so they teach each child on a one-to-one level and keep each child challenged and make learning fun! I would recommend this school to all I know :)

What a great three years we had at Baldwin Prep! We are saddened that a transfer of jobs is taking us to Illinois. I only hope that we can find that friendly, family energy that you got each and every time we walked in to Baldwin Prep, at another school. The staff was always warm and understanding...how nice to have real, down to earth conversations with my child's teachers. we'll miss you all.

Baldwin Prep is a fantastic school. The teachers and curriculum challenge students and the leadership at the school is phenomenal. Small class sizes and the students actually have a good time while learning. I would encourage parents to visit the school, talk to the teachers and students. You will find that this is an exceptional school.

This school will make your child lose ground academically. They use old books and out dated material. If your child attends they will fall behind!

I moved both of my children to Baldwin Prep after Christmas from another school where my daughter was underperforming and my son was unchallenged. They have turned both of my children into kids that are happy to wake up every day and go to school. My daughter has gone from below grade level in math and reading to advanced math and reading, and my son is so happy with the fact that he is challenged every day to do the best that he can. I would recommend this school to everyone I know.

I have children in both the upper and lower school. They entered Baldwin from successful public school experience and have done very well at Baldwin. The teachers are easy to communicate with and the curriculum goes beyond book learning. Over all we have been very pleased with our experiences at Baldwin Prep.

My son has been at Baldwin Prep for two years and absolutely loves the school, as do I. The teachers and adminstration are extremely pleasant. The small class sizes (<12) allow for individualized attention. Each week, one of the teachers will call and discuss your child's performance in each class. Despite the size, the school manages to accomodate (and sufficiently challenge) students with a wide range of abilities and backgrounds. The students appear to be quite good-natured and all get along with one another rather well.
