I am looking for some info on a good area for my family. My husband will be working in Orlando and would consider 20 -30 mile radius. I do need a school district that has good programs for special needs children. I have a 12 year old and a 10 year old (which is my Special Needs child). We would like to stay between 150,000 - 250,000 range. Can anyone suggest different cities I could start looking at and/or School Districts that would work for us? Also does anyone know what the real estate taxes run on a $200,000 home.
Thanks

Seminole county is generally considered the best school district but I'm not sure who's best for special needs. My intuition would be Orange since it's the largest county with probably the most resources.

I've been doing the research as we are moving and I have a child with autism. I've been told that South Creek ES is a great school (within the Hunter's Creek area). Unfortunately none of the web sites that grade schools will tell you much in the way of services for disabilities. From what I have heard so far though, Orange County is the best for what we need.

If you would like to talk in more detail feel free to send me a message.

Lake Mary, Oviedo, Winter Springs, Sanford, Casselberry, Longwood, and Altamonte Springs are the main ones.
