Can anyone tell me what the best elementary schools are in Port St. Lucie. I grow up there so I'm a little concerned about coming back. But we don't have a choice right now. My son is in 3rd grade and I want to send him to a great school. Are there any hands on learning charter schools in the area?

There are no good schools in PSL!! j/k...but not really.

Where do you live or will you live? PSL schools are divided in "zones". You need to find out what zone you will be in and what schools are available to you in that zone. If you have 4 choices, you must rate which schools you want your child to attend- rated 1 through 4. Then you go to the school board and student assignment will put your choices into the computer. Ultimately, the computer will decide which school your child will go to.

I'm not sure about the charter schools. As long as they have room for your child, you can go there. All you need to do is call the school and find out if they have space for your child.

I'm really disappointed with the schools here. From what I understand- if you are moving here, move to Martin county for the schools! I am sickened by the things my children tell me everyday, repeated from what these other children tell them.

The Charter schools - everyone wants their child in them. West of the turnpike is the red zone - East is the Blue zone. You have to ask/apply for them. They are part of the regular school system but run by FAU.

If you are moving in the middle of a year you will go to whatever school is available. Try for next year to the ones you want

Ditto seetheusa .... the schools in Martin Co are far superior and it's such a short hop to PSL if you had to be there for work/family etc. I'm in Palm City, excellent schools and just travel north a little and I'm in PSL, straight down the interstate ..

Best of luck ... T

I teach in St. Lucie and YES there ARE good schools. Stick with the blue or red zones. Sorry, don't know of any 'hands-on' charter schools.

Default There are affordable private schools

I send my kids to Liberty Baptist Academy. It is in Fort Pierce, but is very close to Port St. Lucie. Their tuition is very reasonable. The education is superb, and is taught from a Christian perspective. My kids started LBA in K4, and I plan on them graduating from the high school.

I have heard multiple people on this forum bashing the PSL schools. I was a bit worried upon first moving here. Let me say this -- we have our son enrolled at Manatee Academy K-8 and it is WAY better than the school we brought our child from in Miami. The teachers and staff have been nothing short of amazing.

So for those of you who keep saying the schools in PSL are terrible: Unless you have tried them all you have no room to speak for "all of them".

Thanks.

My children have been on the waiting list since day 1 for Manatee. I agree- it is probably the best school in this zone. They are also waiting to see if they can get into Palm Pointe, but I don't have any hope that they'll get in to either.

PSL water- if you would like a tour of the school my kids are forced to go to, you'll understand my issues with this school district.
