My son has gone to school at PBDA since he was 2 years old. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this school. It is the perfect combination between a great education and a nurturing environment. Sometimes when I walk through the door, I can almost hear the Cheers song-- sometimes you wanna go, where everybody knows your name, and they are always glad you came.... They truly love their students, which promotes the students' love for learning, and thereby motivating them to rise to the challenge.

I am deeply grateful for the quality of education and commitment from Palm Beach Day Academy to our children's. The best core program, with an emphasis on the whole child; Intellectual, Athletics & Social that will nurture a great member of society in the future..

Also, the school is not a challenge. Even honors classes are a breeze. The only challenge is trying to go through a normal day without getting yelled at by teachers.

I used this website 2 years ago when I was looking for a new school for my son and I found it extremely helpful. There were many schools to consider and I was extremely thorough in my search. After visiting PBDA my husband, son & I all left the school knowing that if they had a place for our son then PBDA would be his new school. They were warm & embracing from the moment we entered the school and have remained that way ever since. Our decision to enroll our son @ PBDA and to become a part of the PBDA community/family is one of the best decisions we could have ever made. We are beyond thrilled with the administration, teachers, families, facilities and students. Our son could not be any happier. There is a wonderful balance between academics, athletics & the arts. PBDA is committed to challenging & supporting their student's mind, body & spirit. They are also very committed to the community & to teaching the children how to give back to their community. We believe that our son is getting the finest education possible. I would highly recommend that anyone looking for an outstanding education in the south Florida area consider PBDA.

My daughter has been going to this school since she was 2 1/2 years old. She is currently in 6th grade. It has been her second home. Because of the excellent faculty she has developed very good study skills and has a strong foundation for learning. She looks forward to going to school and being challenged daily. I'm so grateful she can spend the difficult middle school years with a strong support system this school provides. I think it is by far the best school in Palm Beach County.

I went to PBDA until 8 grade. I had so many great memories there i would not change it for anything! Also when i went to the high school i am at now even though my high school is a private school too i was very prepared for what high school threw at me becuase PBDA is a little but more advanced then any other private school in the area at least in my opinion. So any one who would like a good education and close environment this school is for you!

Palm Beach Day Academy is one of the best schools in South Florida, located in Palm Beach. The faculty and staff are great. We have many programs that help poor and in need organizations.

Academically strong, this school also instills a sense of community. Although students do tend to be from wealthy families, there is a big push for interaction with all types of students. Bulldog Outreach has done a tremendous job collecting and distributing goods to migrant schools allowing children to visit the schools themselves. This is a true, caring school that looks out for its students, faculty and others.

The quality of the academic programs here are second to none especially when placed up against its local competitors. This school is rooted in tradition, fostering a sense of community, morals and values. With its high tuition it has mainly catered to the affluent but since its merge with another school there is now scholarship/financial aid offerings so I think the clientele will become a little more diverse. The sports program is excellent while the fine arts remains its only sole weakness I believe the merge will help to better that as well in time. They have set their sights on a high school so after that it will be the whole package Pre-k through the 12th grade. We love this school! Having said that, bare in mind no school is perfect!

The Palm Beach Day School is absolutely wonderful. The faculty and students have the upmost respect for one another and there is a great sense of community.

This school, while it has its good scores in particular areas, it does not allow a child to see the world for what it really is. Because it is a pricey private school, it caters to the wealthy more than the normal life of everyday children, those less fortunate.
