I come from Spain and have two kids ages 7 and 9. Next year I'd like to come and spend 6 months somewhere in Florida with my kids with the main pourpose of them learning English. My idea would be to rent a house/condo/appartment and enroll them in a private school from the begining of the school year to Christmas, so they can finish the year in their country. If the experience is good I would be willing to repeat it the year after doing the same thing.

They would have to attend a private school because the visa requirement (that's fair) does not allow them to attend a public funded school.

We have been spending our holidays in the Gulf Coast for the last summers but I am looking for something different to a vacation condo for this experience.

I'd like to rent a place in a nice family neighborhood where my kids could meet other children and where there is a private school where they could feel welcome and well.

Since my husband would have to stay in Spain for most of the time, this would be a great effort (personal and economical) we would do to give our kids the opportunity to learn another language and also a different culture. So I want to choose very well where we go.

I am totally lost,

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

St. Andrews School in Boca is good for this sort of thing, if they have space available.
