Del prado is run by the PTA. They are all over the place and seem like they have more power than the teachers or administration. They are constantly asking for more money but so much is wasted with over printing. My child generally has 5-6 unnecessary flyers every day and the teacher reprints reminders for everything instead of utilizing the class website with email notifications that was set up. The teachers and school are far more interested in keeping up appearance with cutesy Pinterest projects than a thorough education. Not a bad school but feels focused on the wrong things.

We have been part of the Del Prado family for 3 years now and have had the greatest experience. I am a former teacher, and I know how difficult it can be to run a safe and effective school. This school goes above and beyond for the students. Parent involvement is a huge aspect of the success of a school, and you can always count on the parents of Del Prado to help make the year a great one. The staff responds to our concerns immediately, and the principal is a great motivator. This is a school where the higher level students actually encourage the lower level ones. The school continually gets top scores. Do not worry about sending your children to Del Prado!

Office staff is rude, uncaring and passes the buck. My husband and I always get the run-around. They will never go out of their way to help you. Typical failed system. No one thinks outside the box, no one problem solves. Very disappointed.

I am very pleased with my son being in Del Prado. It's a wonderful school with a good gifted program. Teachers, office staff and the principal are always professional, warm and ready to help.

Cute school. The principal is caring and is always ready to help. My two daughters have the best teachers. We couldn't be happier!

Terrible school. Don't be fooled by the rating. They will not help your child if he/she is struggling.

Great school. Nice staff and teachers. This is the best elementary school I know. We are moved from Vero Beach, Florida to Boca Raton Florida looking for good elementary schools, finally we found Del Prado Elementary School to educate our son

I love this school minus how much they cram down the homework when FCAT came around last year. I don't know what other elementary schools do.

Good luck fitting in. Do some research on the neighborhood around the school and you'll understand. The level of exclusion by the parents and the students is disgusting. The school was a little above average. It is way behind Addison Mizner.

First Of All The Front Desk And Nurse Are Ridiculous, They Cannot Use Common SenSe In So Many Levels. My DaughterThe Gifted But In The End What Matters Is The Teachers. Last Year She Was Not InThe Gifted But The Teacher Was Much Better.... For Those Wondering If They Should Move To This District Because Of The School Rating Don't Waste Your Time Or Money Since 20% Of The Students Use Their Friends Or Family Addresses For The First Year, After That No more Address Check. Very Disappointed With Their System.b

We had 3 children in this school and we are happy we took our children out of Del Prado. Our oldest was in Del Prado for 5 yrs and had some teachers that were not qualified to teach. They do play favorites sometimes. I think maybe the gifted program is much better. That is what all the hype is about. The regular program is "C. " They did little to help my advanced child that I didn't put into the gifted program. This child is very happy at a much better school. So much inconsistency. The kindest person was Dale Martin in the office.

I had my son tested for the gifted program because he was so advanced for his age. He is in the gifted kindergarten and he is still getting bored. The gifted program is not good enough for kids that are coming from an excellent pre school. I am not happy at all with the program. When my son started the year he had some friends that couldn't read and he was reading like a second grade level and he was only in kindergarten. They should separate the kids in the correct classroom and improve the gifted program. Also they should train the teachers better to do more than one level in the same class, they all should be gifted teachers. And please, let the new teachers start working and send home the teachers that work enough time and are not capable anymore to be in a class with young kids. Thanks.

Del Prado has been a blessing to our daughter. After countless hours of searching for the right school for our first grader and reading the reviews from all different schools, we finally decided this school was the best choice for her. We just moved to the area from Myrtle Beach, SC and though the school she was in was amazing in every way, this one isn't one bit behind. She has homework everyday and I am impressed with the amount she has learned in such short period of time. They really do keep the kids busy and interested. The grounds are well kept, the school is very clean, and the office staff couldn't be friendlier. Her teacher is so kind and doing the best she can to make my daughter fit in. I couldn't be happier. The "room mom" was also very friendly and called to fill me in on classroom functions such as holiday parties and etc. Lastly I would just like to say that every school has their pros and cons; however, out of all the schools in the Boca area this school really is the best choice and I thank God everyday for the opportunity He has given us to live within the school boundaries.

We moved to the area because of this school and we are very glad we did. The teachers are very caring and nurturing, but are very academically driven....which is why we moved here. I have read other comments, and quite frankly, do not place much stock in poorly written, grammatically incorrect comments. Education starts at the home, is accelerated in areas at the school level, and then reinforced again within the home. We couldn't be happier at this school and would recommend it to anyone.

I have to say that I have had very little experience with this school, but from what I know, I am not fond of some of the teachers. I tutor a student at this school, and I asked the teacher if she could possibly email me what the student is learning. She responded by saying "I'm too busy". I think this is a worng for a teacher to do this. Teachers are supposed to help guide students on the right track. Anyways, since the teachers happen to be like that, I suggest enrolling your kids in other schools, where teachers WILL help your child. This shows me that the teachers here are teaching for the pay check not the students!
