Billionaire Jeff Greene’s private elementary school in West Palm Beach for gifted children is set to open Tuesday with about 50 students in prekindergarten through fourth grade. Annual tuition ranges from $20,000 to $27,000.
The billionaire told the Palm Beach Post that The Green School will serve as an example of innovative teaching and classroom technology. Greene estimated that he has invested $7 million in the start-up of the school, including the purchase of a 22,000-square-foot car dealership at 2001 South Dixie Highway and its transformation to an elementary school.
