    My son has attended Grandview Prep since turning 3. He is in the Early Childhood class with Mr. Behrmann. I love the staff at Grandview the personal attention he receives as well as the overall community of the school. In his short time there I feel my son's social skills have flourished. He is happy when coming and going and he enjoys the enrichment opportunities available. Additionally I have been very pleased with the swim class after-care. In just a few weeks my son has become a more confident swimmer which translates to a more relaxed time around water for me! Although I only see the other children in a limited sense I continue to be impressed with the older students at the school who know my son's name hold doors for me when I am on campus and seem to be genuinely interested in learning and each other. In a very busy area Grandview is a breath of fresh air with a caring nurturing environment.

The staff and administration strive to create positive learning experiences while providing a safe and welcoming environment for all students and families. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with such intelligent and nurturing people. I highly recommend all families to consider Grandview.

    This small school offers a lot. My children have every opportunity to be involved in sports (no cut policy) student government clubs and community service. They have learned character and compassion through hands on House Activities. The teachers are caring and creative with the academics. Our family has been very happy with Grandview.

    Grandview has been a dream come true when my two children started here I love every single thing about this school. The teachers that teach at Grandview are so caring about your child and his/her schoolwork and education . If your child needs extra help after school it's there for them. The children all know each other and it feels like a big family instead of a school. There's never any bullying which now a days is such a big thing in schools ..I would never want my children to attend another school other than Grandview. This school so deserves FIVE stars !!!

    A school yes! There is a building there are teachers and books and buses too! Grandview Prep has all these things which makes it a school. We are not only a school we are team members working together for a common goal and that goal is our children how they learn and what they learn and the resources in which they learn from. In this place each family is considered part of the Grandview Team. When you are here you don't want to leave...you feel as if you are already home.. To call it just a school is no way near what Grandview is. No matter your differences here at Grandview we all come together to nurture that common goal. Our children....I.Love this place.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
