Could anyone provide us a local take on any of these high schools and where they are located? We have culled them down from a longer list, but couldn't find information about these except their pretty good school grades (As and Bs). We will be moving to the area for my husband's job and would prefer not to pay over 300k for a home in a safe, family friendly area. We had thought Jupiter was the place for us until we realized that the homes in that area are out of our price range. We really appreciate your help.

Boca Raton High
Olympic Heights High
Palm Beach Central High
Palm Beach Gardens High
Park Vista High
Santaluces High
Seminole Ridge High
Spanish River High
Wellington High
West Boca Community High

1st-Boca High/Spanish River
2nd Park Vista

My son attended West Boca High and we all were not happy with the school....I do not have personal experience with any other except for Spanish River however most of our friends kids attend Boca High as my son swam competitively with their swimmers and they all love the school as well as the parents who were happy with the School...

Park Vista is also a very good school however they keep changing the Zone Lines so they have re-zoned quite a few times already....

DH's co-worker had his oldest who graduated and his 2nd one they were able to get him into Boca High in one of the Academy's as the family was not happy with Olympic....Spanish River we have been very happy with as well...

I can't speak for any of the other schools Just a few that when I was doing research many years ago...We had chosen Boca specifically for the schools and the location....

Where is your husband's job going to be located? If the job is in North Palm Beach, Martin County may be worth looking into. Palm City has excellent schools, it is safe, family friendly and you can find a nice home for $300K. Taxes and insurance are also less than Palm Beach County.

My husband's job is at the Broward/Palm Beach County line so Martin county would be a bit far north, but thanks.

Both of my kids attend Boca High and I have nothing but good things to say about it. They were in a small private school before we moved here and I wasn't sure how they would fare in a large public HS, but they love it. Boca High offers not only the advance placement courses, but also the Cambridge AICE program.
