Hi there,

my friend is about to move to Sarasota. He has a 10 years old daughter, who does not speak perfect English (they are moving from Europe). Does anyone know a good elementary school in Sarasota with special English education and sport activities (basketball, golf, etc.)?

Here is a link to all of the Sarasota County schools. It would depend on where they move as to what school she would attend. Most of the schools have sports progams. Here's a link to the English as a Second Language in Sarasota (http://www.sarasota.k12.fl.us/ESOLmigrant/progdescrip.htm - broken link) county.

All the schools will be accommodating to your child's needs. She will most likely be sent to the school in her district. They may make an exception depending on her language barrier, and send her to a school with a more intense program. I used to work with ESOL kids and they usually do very well in public schools. The public schools in Sarasota and Manatee both have good ESOL programs.
