Preparatory (MP) is a West Palm Beach Private High School for gifted and
creative students located in beautiful West Palm Beach, Florida.
MP believes in the advantages of challenging and nurturing
students, which we feel prepares the foundation for lifelong
learning. Fundamental in our teaching is the development
of independent thought. Encouraging thinking, imagination
and creativity optimizes talent. Bright students need
to have enrichment in every part of their high school. We achieve this through Advanced Placement, Honors, and challenging course work.
Our West Palm Beach Private School has an enriched college prep curriculum that is infused with
classical and contemporary works that emphasizes the importance
of the English language. The mastery and beauty of the language is transmitted
through reading, speaking, listening and writing. We strongly believe it is important
to teach and transmit mathematics, with it's many uses, so that
students may be confident in employing it and moving forward
with the assurance that this knowledge is at their fingertips. Our Mathematics and Science courses are taught in a way that ensures student mastery of each subject. Matlock Academy teachers bring creativity back to the learning process in a way that allows students the comfort of searching for answers and solutions to academic problems. Matlock Academy has Rolling Admissions, which means we can accept students throughout the School Year. Please call or email for more information about enrollment opportunities.
Our High School environment relies on a respect for the student's
and staff's abilities. This unique approach separates us from many other West Palm Beach Private High Schools.
It is easier for students to find their voices when they
are readily accepted into their peer group. The identity
of the student is strengthened through this process. Families
are the primary source of love, ethical standards, manners,
study, self-discipline, and honesty. It is the school's responsibility
to work with our families to bring out these qualities in

A substantial intelligence is as valuable as a good heart.
We seek to develop both. True self-confidence reflects both;
because a student that feels good about themselves and their
intellectual development, will posses a confidence
about their future.
