Hello. I will be moving to the West Palm Area this. I have two girls 10 and 5 yrs, I would appreciate some advice on what area would be good to move to. I do not want to go as far as Wellington. I was thinking about Jupiter and Royal Palm Beach. Thanks !

Those would be two good areas to go. Stay West or North of West Palm and you should be good. Well stay North of Northlake, stay out of Riviera Beach. The School District of Palm Beach County Schools in Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, FL. Research the schools and you'll get a better idea of where to look.

Maaarie,

I don't know how much familiar you are with this area, but if you are willing to move to Royal Palm Bch, then you can consider Wellington. They are at similar longitude (west), Royal Palm is just a bit north of Wellington.
Jupiter, in northern PBC is another story. You can definitely find good areas in there to raise your kids. Especially the northern part of Jupiter has several nice and down to earth areas (northern part = exit Indiantown Rd).

This. Wellington has the most families as far as I can tell, but it is SOOOOOO far away. Jupiter is lovely. Palm Beach Gardens is lovely. Palm Beach County Schools are also good in that you can go to high school (at least, not sure about before that) anywhere in the county as long as you test in. Everyone always talks about how bad FL schools are but first of all, come on it's not like they are Arizona or Arkansas, and second, Dreyfoos and Suncoast are two of the best in the country according to US News.
