The Best Schools in the Most Affordable Zip Code Codes: Rank: 2 - BusinessWeek

Don't know if this was posted earlier, but I saw it on the news tonight.

Boca was actually 15th.

33467 is not incorporated Lake Worth. Zipcode boundary is essentially Jog Road west past SR 7, north to Forest Hill Blvd and south to past Hypoluxo Road. Was born and raised in that area, and I don't know of anyone other than the Postal Service (and maybe the folks along Lake Worth Road) that consider the area a part of Lake Worth. Not a hater, the area has it's merits. Just think the article is misleading.

We were just discussing this at the office. What would you consider it then?
It's still some good news for the area...

I don't think the area really has an identity, other than being suburban. It's really a melting pot of Wellington, West Boynton, suburban West Palm and suburban Lake Worth.

It doesn't go up to Forest Hill, only to around Pierson Rd/Stribling Way /10th avenue

Click for a Zip Code Boundary Map.

Punch in the Zip code

Some people consider it Wellington and even some of the restaurants and shops use "Wellington" for the city instead of Lake Worth which is attached to the zip. I would say this is the area from Lake Worth road north along 441 east to the turnpike where it's a mix of Greenacres and etc.

Then Google Earth is wrong. I know some people that live in Olympia and Villagewalk and they have 33414 zip codes. The boundary is right below Olympia and the two schools on the opposite side are 33414.

As a filfy , socialist-hippy, Lake Worth is the only place other than
Flamingo Park I would live below PGA Blvd. Its merits are its
downtown, forward thinking community and it still has a 'real'
non-dentist office feeling the rest of S.Fl doesnt have.

Got ya. Just surprised that Google is using outdated information. Their maps have to be around a decade old.
