you're forgetting the fact that cops don't really have to follow the rules. they can ticket you all they want if you have no witnesses. who do you think the judge is gonna believe? i'm just saying, my experience with windermere cops has been bad. i was pulled over for going 5 hour and had my whole car searched for nothing at all. and i didn't consent to the search. just take in to consideration that not everyone is as lucky to be rich, white, driving a nice car and get off that easy.

Default Where does Winter Park fit in w/Windermere and DP?

I have an investment house in Independence (I think it'sWindermere-Olympia is the HS) but I was planning on moving to WP or possibly somewhere else seeking the best schools (my daughter will be in 7th grade). Now I am hearing that Windermere is excellent. I figure great schools should go hand in hand w/prettiest town but schools are my top priority. I Would prefer public school (but will go private if I need to). I currently have her in a great Long Island school where she just missed honors classes and want to keep the momentum going.
I would like to hear what are considered to be the top 3 middle and high schools in the Orlando area. I will revolve my life and business around the school. Thank you

Lake Highland Prep is a private school that is supposedly very good education and very good at emptying your pockets. Personally, I went to Chain of Lakes Middle and it wasn't that bad. Southwest Middle would be a good choice too. As for high schools, Dr. Phillips High School and Winter Park High School would be my only suggestions for you. Winter Park is a nice area though, you could live happily there easy. It's about 25 minutes east of Windermere and past downtown.
