Just make sure your realtor excludes homes with sinkhole remediation. There are a variety of websites that you can use to assess schools. Some are better than others. People are also very defensive when their school districts are ranked below average, so I am sure our educator friends will jump on here to fire bullets. Some of the more popular ones are Great Schools, Schooldigger, US News & World Report, etc.

You should also refer to the FL Dept. of Ed. school grades.


Florida School Accountability Reports


Of the above zip codes, the best schools will be found in Lutz, without question. Steinbrenner High School in Lutz is one of the highest ranked public schools in the Tampa area. However, there are many suburbs with decent public schools. Fish Hawk area will have the best schools in the area you are considering.

The websites for school ratings can and are easily gamed. While they have some value, there is nothing remotely as statistically accurate as the Florida Department of Education's school grades data. And it's not being gamed by parents and staff.
