Hello, I would like to know if anyone has opinions of Seminole county schools-Are they highly regarded? Safe?
Also, if anyone knows about the towns of Oviedo, Winter Springs, or any other town you know to be a family friendly safe town, I would greatly appreciate any information about safe areas to live with good schools (high schools).
Thank you so much!

Seminole County schools are great. I am a product of Seminole County schools, having graduated from Lake Mary High School. I am also a teacher in Orange County. Seminole schools are well regarded, but your involvement in your child's education will impact whether or not he/she has success. Oviedo and Winter Springs High are both respected schools in the area you asked about. Let me know if you have any questions about other schools.

If I had to live in the Orlando area, I'd take Oviedo and those areas around Seminole Co.

You just metioned all the area's I recommend the most when people want family friendly and great schools.

There is alot of info about those area's on this forum. You can also get lots of info about schools here.... GreatSchools.net and lots of city info here Welcome to the City of Oviedo | City of Oviedo, Florida and here Home (http://www.winterspringsfl.org/EN/home.htm - broken link)

Nice area's with good schools in OC are also Lake Nona area, Waterford Lakes, and Dr. Phillips.

I've lived in Winter Springs for 9 years and the area that we live in I consider very safe.

Default hi there

I would recommend Winter Garden/Windermere. I dont only specialize in homes in this area but we like it so much we live here. We have a 7yr old daughter who is in 1st grade and we are very happy with the school. I am from the UK and my wife is American. Our daughter is actually my step daughter, but what i do like is her teacher is English, so she is picking up the accent from me at home and her teacher at school. I also think that she does have a good education by having a teacher who is experienced in the UK aswell. It broadens their horizons, but I do find for your children to do well in the schooling system here you have to take an active rolse in their school career
