Explore Your Best Choice During Virtual Showcase of Schools
The A-rated School District of Palm Beach County remains your best choice for your child’s education. The community is invited to explore all 179 District-operated schools, including 300+ Choice and Career programs during the Virtual Showcase of Schools on Tuesday, Oct. 20, starting with a Facebook Live information session at 4 p.m.
Through the online platform, attendees will be able to check out opportunities at each school, attend virtual open houses, and explore programs of interest, including the District’s newest Choice programs:
- Business Leadership – Addison Mizner K-8
- Dance, digital graphic design, multimedia and television production, theater – Plumosa School of the Arts
- Cambridge Academy – Verde K-8
- Agritechnology and computer science – Glades Central High School
- Cybersecurity – Santaluces High School
This year, families can view all of the District’s schools and the programs that are available at their home school. If a family is looking for a program that’s not offered at their home school, they can look into the 322 options available in the District’s Choice and Career academies at more than 120 campuses across Palm Beach County.
These programs range in interest and grade level, with opportunities to start working toward a specific career path as early as elementary school. The District offers 93 industry certifications, allowing high school students to go into a job in their chosen field right after graduation.
In addition to the nine new programs that are available, Grove Park Elementary is now an IB World School with a STEM focus. As of October 2020, Choice programs in District schools continue to be available to students through distance learning or by attending class on campus.
