We just moved to WPB from out of state and the school decisions are a bit overwhelming! Our 5 year old will be starting kindergarten this fall. We are trying to decide between South Olive Elementary and Meyer Academy, but then someone suggested we try the Weiss School. I found very diverse opinions about Weiss online. Any thoughts on these schools? Thanks in advance!

I've heard great things about the gifted program at South Olive. . . their former principal is at Palm Beach Public School now and she even recommended South Olive. But I don't know anyone with kids there.

I was just talking to a friend of mine who went to the Weiss School and had nothing good to say about it, but who knows. . . If I lived nearby I would definitely look into it.

Just wondering where you decided - Weiss or Meyer? My daughter went to Meyer from K to 8th grade and it was the best decision I ever made - she received an exceptional education and is now in a pre-med magnet high school.

We ended up going with Meyer and we have had a great experience so far! The teachers are excellent and I am amazed by what she has already learned. I went to visit both schools before deciding and while Weiss wasn't horrible, Meyer seemed a LOT more organized, the staff more qualified, and Meyer seemed to have a much stronger curriculum... The school has a great community and the parents are very friendly. I'm not sure what will happen after 8th grade...

My children currently attend The Weiss School. They are flourishing! It depends on what type of environment you want for your children. I have friends whose children attend Meyer. If you are looking for the religious aspect, then Meyer is definitely the way to go. If you are looking for a school to meet the needs of your child who needs gifted services then Weiss should be your choice.
