May I ask how you came up with these ratings?

All other sources that I have found indicate both Dr. Phillips and Olympia to also be A Rated Schools:

Your probably looking at ratings from last year. I got my info from the school district website with the latest ratings.

Winter Park is kind of the gold standard here for music.

Timber Creek is overcrowded and the Principal wants to be the Developer's best friend as opposed to educating your kid. Actually, you would do better to go to a Seminole County school, like Oviedo, The IB program at Seminole High, Lake
Mary, Lake Brantley. Chiles High school might be okay, but they too want to be the Developer's best friend.

This is correct both of those are A rated as are Boone and Winter Park. the later being the highest rated High school in Orange County. Oviedo is the highest rated in Seminole.

orange county has as many A high schools as Seminole

No. Boone and Winter Park are currently the only A rated high schools in the county, the list i posted above is 100% accurate.. But i do agree that Orange county does have many great schools , the bad schools of the county just make the county look bad. even though Seminole county has much less schools, they are mostly all high rated, so it makes the county look good. But you can find schools in orange county that are better than schools Seminole county. For example, i would rather send my child to winter park high school rather than Seminole high school. Both counties have good schools, orange county just also has some low rated schools in addition to there high rated schools.

BTW the two oviedo area high schools, hagerty high and oviedo high. are both B rated schools.

also, both seminole and orange counties are A rated school districts
