What about the Sarasota and Manatee county schools?

Posted 01-10-2010 at 01:02 PM by SoFLGal
Updated 05-12-2015 at 10:58 PM by SoFLGal

Sarasota county has one of the best school systems in the state of Florida. It also has Pine View School for the Gifted, which was ranked the top school in Florida and one of the top schools in the Nation. It is a public school and the requirements are that you live in Sarasota county, have an IQ of 130 or more, pass the achievement tests required and have teacher recommendations. I have one child who graduated from PV and another who attended for many years. It's a great school but it's not for every kid. It services grades 2nd-12th. Here's some more info on that subject:
Welcome to Pine View School
Pine View School - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There are many other fantastic schools in Sarasota and Manatee county's Here's a website where you can see how the schools are rated:
School Accountability Report...
or www.GreatSchools.com

Here are the school districts by zone: http://www.sarasotacountyschools.net...lrp/zones.aspx

Southside services most of the downtown area south of Main St. North of Main would be mostly Booker school district. The Palmer Ranch area is mostly Ashton school district. There are other schools in the area but these are ones that I have either had personal experience with or I have friends that have kids in the schools.

Sarasota ranks as one of the top districts in the state by a number of measures, including test scores, graduation rates and teacher compensation.

It offers distinctive programs tailored to different student needs, including Florida's only school for the gifted, the state's largest special needs school and one of a handful of career-focused high schools.

My family has extensive experience with the Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte county school systems. My grandmother went to many of the local schools that aren't even around anymore. My parents attended many local schools. My father went to Anna Maria Elementary school in the early 50's. My parents attended Manatee High School together and they graduated from Manatee Jr College and both went onto eventually graduate from The University of Florida.

I attended public, private and charter schools in all three counties. My children are and have attended public, private, gifted and online schools in all three counties. I know many of the teachers, principals, etc in the local schools and have friends with children in the local schools as well.

When it comes to the locals school systems, I have a lot of first hand knowledge.

Alright, if I were checking out schools other than Pine View these are the schools that I would look into, in order. This is also the order they fall in if you look at the stats on the state of FL.

I'll throw some zip codes and communities in as well to use for a general guideline but make sure you double check them with the map provided and the local school board as the map/zip codes may change if they add a new school, development or due to enrollment.

Keep in mind that there are other communities in each zip code worth checking out. I'm just trying to give you a starting point. Also, if the community is very large it might encompass two or three different schools.

Sarasota County also has what is called "School Choice". Click here to find out more about that: http://sarasotacountyschools.net/dep...t.aspx?id=2674

Here is the website for Manatee County Schools: http://www.manatee.k12.fl.us/
Attendance zones for Manatee county Schools: http://www.manateeschools.net/pages/...ignment_Lookup
And School Choice in Manatee County: http://www.manateeschools.net/pages/.../School_Choice

Another option is Florida Virtual School. My middle girl has done that for the last few years. It's worked out great for us but you and your child need to be very disciplined with turning in assignments, teacher conferences, etc. http://www.flvs.net/myFLVS/Pages/myFLVS.aspx

This website has some info on the local private schools in the area: http://www.privateschoolreview.com/c...L/county/12115
The Manatee Chamber of Commerce has a list of a few private schools in Manatee county: http://www.manateechamber.com/manate...e-schools.aspx
