Featured School
The Weiss School, located in Palm Beach Gardens, is fully accredited by the Florida Council of Independent Schools, the Florida Kindergarten Council, and the Southern Association for Colleges and Schools.
We understand the unique needs of Gifted Students, and have been educating the gifted population (PreK to 8th Grade) since 1989.
Our  school gives children the opportunity to develop mentally, socially, and emotionally to their fullest potential.
With small classes, individual attention is a priority.
Students, teachers and parents work together to map out individualized educational programs that build upon each child's special strengths and skills, while enhancing the child's self-esteem and self-concept.
Our mission is to provide a warm, caring environment in which all students succeed in developing the knowledge and social skills they need to be independent thinkers.
