Year in Review!
Dear Palm Beach Day Academy Families,
My inaugural year as Head of School at Palm Beach Day Academy has been full of many new initiatives and stellar accomplishments. In the brief video below, you will get a glimpse of this exciting year that included innovative teaching, joyful learning, inventive student projects, and community impact.
It has been a privilege and joy to work with our students, faculty, staff, and friends during this important time in the history of the school. I hope you will enjoy a relaxing and peaceful summer, and I look forward to seeing you in September.
Warmest regards,
Edwin P. Gordon
