Would a Junior in high school moving to Orlando during the school year from Massachusetts have a hard time adjusting?

Well, many high schools in Orlando have between 3,000-4,000 students, so there will be a huge size difference. Check out the websites for the schools. Not everyone has a swimming and/or water polo team.

I think you'll be fine. Keep in mind there are many students in the same boat as you. What high school will you be attending?

If it were me I would stay until you graduate and then come down. I think it would be the smart thing to do. You only have a year or more until you graduate. Make sure you come and visit Florida for a week or more if you can before moving down here and making the change. Good Luck!

Since you play an aquatic sport it will probaly help make the transition much easier here. Swimming and water polo were really big at my high school and they seemed to be a pretty tight knit group.
