My husband will be going to chiro school in Port Orange and our son will be starting kindergarten in a few years. I have lived in Orlando (Orlando, Winter Spgs, Winter Park and Oviedo) and used to work at UCF so I know the area but that was 8 years ago and I didn't have children.

We could live anywhere in the area and want the best neighborhood for schools. I realize many people use private schools as I used to be a sub in Orange and Seminole counties, but overall, what's the best family area? Thanks!

We have lived the Port Orange area since 1973!! It's a great place to live. Schools are fantastic, both our kids graduated from Spruce Creek.
We are very familiar with Palmer Chiro. Many students have been our clients. The nearby neighborhoods are very family friendly and home prices have come down.

We did not have good experiences in Port Orange schools just because of crowding with the population growth here. My son was in a double classroom for K last year so this school we took another route.
If I had it to do over again, with the way the county has grown versus the lack of school expansion (even though they did just builid a new P.O. school that just openend) , I would move to Ormond where there are more private schools.
St James Episcopal in Ormond has a great repuation. Lourdes had a great reputation but I know they also have crowding issues. There's a small montessori in Daytona that will be expanding in elementary and is a niche school right now.
