Grandview Selected as 2020 Best of Boca Raton Award Winner
Grandview Preparatory School is proud to announce that we were, once again, selected as the sole recipient of the 2020 Best of Boca Raton Award in the Private Schools category by the Boca Raton Award Program. Grandview also won the award in 2019.
Each year, the Boca Raton Award Program identifies organizations that have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional businesses help make the Boca Raton area a great place to live, work and play.
Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2020 Boca Raton Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Boca Raton Award Program and data provided by third parties.
