- The Di Bacco School has, for 45 years, honored the individual student.
- We work to adapt a curriculum unique to the student and offer an atmosphere that is safe and conducive to real learning.
- Our students proceed at their own pace and their individual interests are always encouraged.
- We are not concerned with how fast a student finishes an assignment; we are concerned with how well the assignment is done and how much the student has learned.
- We want our students to become lifelong learners. We limit our enrollment to only 12 students so that we can offer the kind of one-on-one attention the students deserve, unlike the large and unwieldy classes found in public and many private schools.
- The secret ingredient to our approach is the love and respect we have for our students.
- We promote a casual family atomosphere where students feel comfortable and nurtured.
- We call ourselves 'A Little Oasis of Hope' because we offer an innovative alternative to traditional educational methods.
- Our record in college placement is also something we are proud of.
- The Di Bacco School is one of the oldest private schools in Palm Beach County and is still in operation today because we fulfill a need in students who yearn for a smart educational alternative.

I rolled in the school per my parents request to get a high school diploma and not go for my GED in public school. I also had a few friends that already graduated and we`re working great jobs or going to a good college! One of my favorite things about DiBacco is when you needed a break you could take one. Other times if you wanted to finish your weekly packet in a few days (well done) you could advance forward to the next packet/book. DiBacco gave me everything I needed to get my diploma and become successful in life!

This school really helped my son. He was failing at the school he was in and he would come home and literally cry because he felt so frustrated. But he turned around completely after we enrolled him in DiBacco. He loves the teachers and actually enjoys the work they give him. He is happy and cooperative at home. I have my old son back!
