From my understanding Jupiter High is the more desired school, in terms of academics (constantly "A" rated) and community support since its pulls students from only Jupiter, Jupiter Farms and Tequesta. Dwyer has better athletics, decent academics (I think it's a "B" school) and pulls its students mostly from Gardens and portions of Riviera Beach and south Jupiter.

Homeowners insurance will run you around $2,000 per year, give or take.

From what I understand 2% of the purchase price is probably a very good indicator as to what your Property Taxes will be. More than likely it will be less, especially after getting the Homesteaders Discount, but Its a good estimate. After researching Wellington, Boca, W Boynton, Parkland, Weston, PBG, and Jupiter, I gotta admit, Jupiter seems to be the best fit for us. Im real excited to actually see it in person this coming Easter break.

Abacoa is a little Disneyesque, I find it a little too fake, but many find it OK.

LOL, I was thinking it too, but didnt know how to word it. It's like where I live, or like the town of Celebration. It's kind of hard to explain, it's just........ like Pleasantville. From the movie. Everything looks very new, almost like they tried to throw a little town together, surrounded by houses they put up in a year, and the grass was just rolled up like a rug, and you can just unroll it and, twenty seconds later, you have a lawn, lol!

Here is an article about a downtown neighborhood within Abacoa close to the st louis cardinals/florida marlins spring traning facility. The article explains how Antigua and Abacoa was developed according to the new urbanist principals of live/work/play/celebrate.

It's an enjoyable read.
