We are thrilled to announce that Meyer Preparatory School is expanding! Beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, Meyer Prep is pleased to launch a Junior Kindergarten program.
Students who are developmentally ready for a more advanced learning environment, and are younger than traditional kindergarten age, will now have the opportunity to be part of our outstanding JK - 8 Jewish day school. The focus of our Junior Kindergarten is to cultivate socio-emotional and academic growth through discovery and wonderment, while remaining anchored in Jewish values and tradition.
Meyer Prep’s Junior Kindergarten program will feature foundations for the emergent reader, age-appropriate techniques to build number sense and mathematical thinking, and hands-on innovation and STEAM activities. Meyer Prep’s teaching principles of inquiry-based learning through creativity and discovery will permeate all aspects of learning. Play is an essential part of a Meyer Prep Junior Kindergartener’s experience. Students will experiment, create, negotiate, develop friendships and collaborate throughout the school day while learning in an all-new ergonomically designed classroom environment. Meyer Prep’s Jr. K program will be taught by teachers with advanced college degrees who are certified in elementary education.
This is a major step forward for our school whose benefits will resonate out into the greater Palm Beach Jewish community. Meyer Prep extends gratitude to our School Board, professional leadership, and community partners for their efforts to bring the new Junior Kindergarten to fruition.

Every morning, our students pray to Hashem. This is their special time to connect with Hashem and to start the day with positive energy! Here are some photos from this week’s tefillah in Lower School.
Meyer Preparatory is delighted to announce that applications for the 2022-2023 school year are now being accepted for new students! Admissions applications for new students can be found on our website: admissions.meyerprep.org.
Currently enrolled students do not need to apply, as this admissions application round is only for new students who are not currently enrolled at Meyer Prep. Re-enrollment for current Meyer Prep students will begin on January 11, 2022 and end on February 4, 2022.
Due to high demand, please note that several grades are expected to reach capacity.
If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact Natalie Barak at 561-238-9008.
The Meyer Prep Eagles had a lot to prove going into their final game of the season but they dominated The Greene School 24-6, winning the first-ever Flag Football Championship in our school's history! The Eagles’ offense was on fire as Aron ran in the first touchdown followed by Erik with a quick second. Elias ran in the third touchdown and Alex completed the quarter with a final touchdown run. Defensively, the Eagles played a strong game led by Noah, Ethan, Josh, Avi, Zack, and Jordan. The Greene School only scored one touchdown against a nearly impenetrable defensive line. Kol ha-kavod to our champions!
We celebrated the Eagles' win in true Meyer Prep spirit at our Championship Walk. Enjoy these photos from the celebration.
We welcomed the new Israeli emissary, Chani, to Meyer Prep. The students were so excited and asked her many questions. They sang and danced to Shabbat songs for her. Welcome to the Palm Beach community, Chani!
Middle school students learned about cities in Israel using the outdoor Israel map in the courtyard. After each team discovered its city by assembling puzzle pieces, the students had to locate their city on the map. The next step was to research facts about that city in Israel and to present it to the other teams who had to guess what place it is and run to "visit" the city on the map. While arriving in Eilat, the students ran into Ms. Turk who shared with them her experience from 3rd Grade, when she lived in the southern part of Israel. It was fun to be able to tour the land from north to south all in 40 minutes. We are lucky to have the outdoor Israeli map in our beautiful courtyard at Meyer Prep.
Seventh and 8th Grade students and parents joined us for our annual high school fair! Thank you to the representatives that participated from high schools throughout the county! Students and parents were able to meet with prospective high schools and learn more about the amazing programs they offer! Click here to see more photos from our high school fair.
Meyer Prep's flag football team won its first game of the season with a score of 55 to 0 against Trinity Christian School. Erik W. lead the team with three touchdowns and six interceptions. Aron G. threw four touchdowns and also scored one himself. The defense was led by Alex S. with 12 sacks. Elías M. had eight sacks to help stop the defending team. All the players played very well on the defensive end of the field. A big shout-out to 4th Grader Avi K. Avi had an ankle breaker highlight and scored a two-point conversion. The Meyer Prep football team is off to an amazing start to our 2021- 2022 football season!
This week students had so much fun learning about Rosh Hashanah! The students learned about the special food, the brachot, the meaning of Teshuvah, Tefillah, and Tzedakah. They also participated in baking round challah, honey cake, and special art and crafts for the holiday. Rabbi Eli led Kindergarten through Second Grade in a special Shofar workshop. We wish all our families Shana Tova Umetuka! (have a good and sweet year). Click here to see the pictures from this week’s celebration.
Each month, the Middle School team nominates students who demonstrate the characteristics of our IB Learner Profile for that month. For August, the IB Faculty has selected Ariel K. This month focused on being a communicator within the middle school community. As a communicator, students understand and express ideas and information confidently and creatively in more than one language and in a variety of modes of communication. Students work effectively and willingly in collaboration with others. Congratulations to Ariel K. on receiving this special recognition.
