Yes it is! Depending on what you are looking for, there are many great school options. I have a 7 and 10 year old, so I am very up to date on the school system. Feel free to contact me by phone or email.

Dear Rick,

One of my favorite sites when it comes to school ratings is and if you have an iPhone check out their app which is also a fantastic tool. I love their site, use it often and highly recommend it to my clients who are interested in finding the best schools for their children's education. GreatSchools profiles public, private and charter schools and has a great format for readers to leave comments. Besides their rating system the comment section is the best place to go to get real life feedback from children who attend the schools as well as their parents. You will find that overall Wellington, Jupiter and Boca Raton have some of the best school districts in Palm Beach County.

You might also want to check out the Florida Department of Education School accountability reports which are also a wealth of information and can be accessed with this link;

After doing your homework on-line I always recommend parents visit the school live and in person prior to making any purchasing decisions in that district and if you need assistance let me know as I would be happy to show you around. I hope this information is helpful but if you need anything additional please do not hesitate to give me a call. I would be very happy to further refine the criteria of your perfect home and design a game plan to assist you in finding the perfect location, with the best schools!

Always at Your Service,

What you see listed as West palm Beach on the internet is
a wide area of which the actual City of West Palm Beach is a sub-set.
Some 13 zip codes give the title of " West Palm Beach." Huge differences
in prices ,characteristics and schooling!
There is something for everyone almost- where in the mix you fit depends!
Your criteria for your buy is the best departure point for looking in Palm
Beach County. The areas that have the most of what you are looking for
can be further defined looking at differing characteristics between HOA,s.
as well as municipalities If you feel I can help -call on me anytime,
In the meantime use my Information Website for Community Info,

If looking in the Lake Worth area, you may want to check out the communities of Lake Charleston (not gated w/low HOA's of $75 month), Smith Farm or Journey's End both gated which are all in a wonderful school district.

Dear Rick

The best school ratings are in Wellington, Jupiter and Boca Raton, however there are great schools throughout Palm Beach County, you just have to make sure you know that the home you move to falls into the right school district of your choice.

You can visit for school ratings.

If you would like to get a list of homes available in the A-rated school zones, feel free to contact me.
