    Dr. Martin D. Weiss, co-founder of The Weiss School and now a Trustee Emeritus of the Board, has dedicated his life to education of all age groups. As an American teenager growing up in Brazil, he organized and taught tutorial classes for fellow high school students in English, and Portuguese grammar, math and biology. After returning to the U.S., he joined the Berlitz School of Languages and became that school’s youngest instructor in its history, helping to develop its globally acclaimed Total Immersion method for teaching foreign languages. And later, by designing dozens of custom books for infants, he taught his son to read in two languages by the age of three. With this personal experience in education, Dr. Weiss went on to create two companies — Weiss Research to educate adults about the global economy and The Weiss School to educate gifted children. And today, both have been a success — the former serving 600,000 loyal readers and the latter providing the gifted education that has been so widely acclaimed in the South Florida community. Dr. Weiss holds a bachelor’s degree from New York University and a Ph.D. in cultural anthropology from Columbia University. He is fluent in Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, English and other languages.
The Weiss School is a co-ed private school that serves gifted students in PreK-3 through 8th grade in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. A Weiss School education prepares students to think analytically and creatively, act socially responsible, live vigorously, and create imaginatively in a warm and supportive educational environment.
