Employers in Delray Beach can offer their employees who are parents among twelve (12) public schools in Delray Beach, which are part of the Palm Beach County School District.
In addition to the Delray Schools, students can attend one of the many Choice Schools within the entire Palm Beach County School District, with themes such as art, science, technology, dual language, and Montessori.
Choice Programs are specialized educational programs that enable students to take advantage of additional sources and innovative teaching techniques that focus on the child's individual talents or interests. The Choice Program creates an educational environment which responds to student interests, celebrates cultural and ethnic diversity, and fosters student achievement.
There are eight (8) private schools in Delray Beach, most of which include grades Pre-K through 8th. Educational choices include nationally recognized Montessori programs, and religious programs that include Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, and Lutheran.
