About Us

Boca Raton Charter School (BRCS) opened its doors in February 2006.  This Independent Public Not-For-Profit Elementary School is located one block east of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida.  

Boca Raton Charter School's Academic Focus:                               
The school's academic focus is the Primary Years Program of Inquiry.  The teachers attended the Level 1 training provided by the Texas I.B. Schools in July 2006 and began planning and implementation of the Primary Years Program in August. 

Students attending our school receive course offerings in reading, language arts, math, social studies, science, computer science and foreign language (Spanish). 

In addition to the core content areas, Prek-5 students receive instruction in Music and Art.   

BRCS implements lesson plans for the enfusion of environmental sciences and hands- on activities into our daily curriculum. These enriching science programs are preparing our 5th graders for the Science FCAT and building a foundation in science for grades K- 4.      

The concept of a neighborhood school with a small environment offering unique learning opportunities to young children in a non-tuition public school appeals to local residents.  Boca Raton Charter School is the only public school in Boca Raton currently offering this type of curriculum.  As a Charter School, the school is free to develop innovative curriculum to naturally address the needs of our student population.     

 

BRCS invites International Baccalaureate PYP teachers to apply for FY 2014-2015.
