Help! We are considering moving to the Orlando/Merritt Island area and are researching EVERYTHING right now to be sure we make the right decision for our family. We have two young children and good schools is very important to us. We are actually trying to decide between the Orlando area and the Columbus, Ohio area (big difference, huh?). They both have their pluses and minuses.

I see info on the schools in Merritt Island that indicate they are highly ranked, but a friend of ours had a different experience. His kids were in Ohio schools for years and when they moved to Merritt Island, they were a full year ahead. Later, they ended up moving back to Ohio where the kids were now a year behind. Is it really that different?

Any input would be very helpful. Finding an enriching environment for us to raise our kids in is very important to us! Thanks!

I would look into getting your kids enrolled at Cocoa Beach. Better school, IB programs for advanced classes. Worth a look. MIHS is good, overall CBHS is better.
