We currently live in Largo and have for a while now but we want to relocate to a newer, family friendly area. Since I attend college at SPC, it needs to be in Pinellas County so I can attend college. Can anyone recommend any good neighborhoods in a good school district? I'd also like to avoid the old 50's - 70's homes that we call "bunkers", so anything newer and updated would be preferred.

Thanks.

Childs Park is great to live by.
































LOL J/P

Pinellas Park is decent, but you seem to want absolute Wysteria Lane type neighborhoods so I'd recommend Seminole

The newest housing stock in Pinellas County overall is in the northern part. NE Clearwater, Oldsmar, Safety Harbor, Tarpon Springs and Palm Harbor.

The best school districts in Pinellas County are:

East Lake High School's, which is primarily everything east of Lake Tarpon and would include the south end of Tarpon Springs, pretty much all of Oldsmar, the southeast end of Palm Harbor and I think the northeast edge of Clearwater.

Palm Harbor University High's district includes pretty much all of Palm Harbor and a northwest section of Clearwater.

As mentioned above, Seminole High School's district is quite good as well but you'll find a mix of mostly older (but nice) homes. I wouldn't call them "bunkers" as the ranch homes prevalent in the area seem to have quite a number of windows.

Also consider the Northeast Clearwater/Safety Harbor area which has slightly newer homes (1990s-ish) and a very good school district with Clearwater Countryside High School.

I mentioned high school districts, but the feeder schools (elementary and middle schools) in almost every case are of the same performance level of the high schools.

Countryside High School

Good luck!

Not Wysteria Lane at all, more middle class people that enjoy culture and personality but just want good schools for their kids.

Well I didn't mean it as it being a robot area like Wysteria Lane, but that it is a relatively calm and peaceful area. A suburb.

There are obviously bad areas everywhere, but Seminole is good.
