Hi, Jolie. One other idea: Both towns are in Palm Beach County, and you can use this tool, http://schoolgrades.fldoe.org/default.asp, from the FL state department of education to get grades of the schools in Palm Beach County. Using that tool, you will see all the elementary schools that have an A rating - there are a lot of them. You can either drill down by individual school or compare one to the other. Also look for the group of schools that have an overall point total of more than 650 - there are eight of them. That might be an easy way to focus on just a few schools. Good luck!

Hi Jolie. There are lottery schools where you can put your child's name into a "pot" and if it's pulled out then your child can attend school there. Regarding school ratings, here's a link for you to see what people think.

Hi Jolie!
Here's a link to the School District of Palm Beach County's web site: http://www.palmbeachschools.org/ I believe you will find it helpful to find the information you need. On that site is a tab that may further answer some of the questions you have: http://www.palmbeachschools.org/Community/NewToDistrict.asp

There are magnate schools that are based on lottery, such as Morakami, that is an option. Also you can request another school if a certain need is required.

Hi Jolie,

Children typically go to the elementary schools for which their street address is zoned. There can be extenuating circumstances, and there are also some schools for exceptional children.

There are also several private schools located all through S Florida. That is another option you have.

If I can be of further service, please let me know.
