If you are going to stay in Boca, Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club would probably be a good place to be. Around a dozen homes to choose from, you don't have to join the club if you live there, you can be on the water, and close to the beach.

RPYCC is very waspy FYI......Beautiful area but not tons of kids though there are many more than say 20 years ago. Not technically gated either though it does have security (streets are public).

I hope I worded that properly...I just don't think Boca is the town is was in the 90s anymore.

But St Andrews school isn't exactly a direct correlation of residents of Boca Raton....not too many Sandalfoot or Pearl City residents in that school . 100% agree Boca isn't the town it was in the 80's/90's...it has become a punchline at best. A lot of that mid town boom real estate built in the mid-80's is looking really sad these days....too pricey to teardown but too pricey for what you get also. At least in the east (waterfront, near beaches) they can be torn down and rebuilt, revitalizing the older neighborhoods a few houses at a time.

I have to agree with you on this one..My son attends Spanish River its a little diversified but really not a lot ...He attended West Boca speaking of the Sandlefoot kids and yes that school also is mostly white probably more so than Spanish River, and Boca High is Extremely diversified however the High Schools here in Boca have Academy's and not all the kids are Local Boca Kids either, they come from West Palm, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach etc...From where I grew up in Brooklyn NY this to me isn't very diversified...You can look at the Palm Beach County School District Website and for each school it will give you the ethnicity for an idea, although with so many more people moving in I do not know how accurate it is...

Our friends live in the Royal Palm Yacht Club, they would like it there beautiful homes, and yes it isn't very jewish from what I understand and there is some diversity there...My friends neighbor is African American and the Wife is Asian and I know there are few other inter-racial families that live there too...
