School Notes

Our History

Located in West Boca Raton, Boca Prep International School has provided a world-class education to students from preschool to high school for more than 15 years. The International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum is taught at each grade level and is the core of our robust program. As an IB World School, we focus on the global standards set by a board of governors comprised of academic professionals from around the world. We take pride in developing our students to become future generations of global citizens who will pursue careers and talents that will positively impact our community.

Learning to Trust

We encourage emotional intelligence within our students and help them develop their individual talents. These are life-enriching values that we feel are key components in a child's education. Through a carefully crafted academic program, we encourage personal development through games and activities, where students learn to manage change and transform conflict, to understand peace, to solve problems and manage time, to listen to the needs of others, to develop self respect and self confidence, and to use good manners.

Lower School

Our Lower School begins with preschool at the age of three. Our Primary Years Program (PYP) "Candidate School" helps students develop a love of learning and cultivate their fundamental skills while building the sefl-confidence to investigate. We also provide essential knowledge and promote creativity. We educate the "whole child" and create inquiring life-long learners who encompass all attributes of the IB learner profile.

At the core of the IB Primary Years Program are the six Trans-disciplinary Themes. These themes have global significance. They create a framework that encompasses all learning while providing a blance between the subject areas and the learning that occurs beyond them. Our students go on to pursue careers and develop talents that positively impact our communities.

Upper School

The Upper School is comprised of grades six to twelve. As an IB World School, we offer two programs in the Upper School. The Middle Years Program (MYP), which is offered from grades six to ten and connects subjects trhough interdisciplinary themes. The MYP does not prescribe a particular curriculum. It is instead a framework for delivering and assessing the curriculum already in place.  Connections are made between eight different subject groups and their global contexts.

MYP Subject Groups
  • Language & Literatures
  • Language Acquisition
  • Individuals & Societies
  • Mathematics
  • Sciences
  • Physical & Health Education
  • Design
  • Arts (Art, Music, & Drama)
The Diploma Program (DP), which is a two year program that begins in grade eleven, provides students with the skills and qualifications they need to move on to the next stage of their studies or engage in life's challenges. In the DP, students are placed on the path to earling an IB Diploma, which is advantageous to students pursuing higher education in a more competitive environment.

The DP curriculum has been designed to encourage students to studey a range of subjects. The program encompasses an in-depth study of six major subjects; three subjects are studied at Higher Level and threee at Standard Level, allowing students to pursue advanced work in subjects of particular interest.

We empower our students with the acaedmic knowledge, analytical tools and communication skills that are necessary to be effective in their lives. We challenge our students to elarn and develop beyond their perceived potential in all areas of their academic, creative, physical and social lives, enabling them to open doors to future opportunity and continued success.
