Relocating Families? Where are the Best Schools in Tampa? Tampa Real Estate News…

Filed under: Real Estate News, Relocation, Schools in Tampa, Tampa Real Estate, Tampa Schools

I could write the scriptWhen families with children are relocating, the question is always the sameWhere are the Best Schools in Tampa? While buying a house in Tampa, researching the schools is also a top priority.

Hillsborough County, which contains Tampa and the surrounding communities, is the 8th largest school district in the U.S. and is home to several of the Top 100 Schools in the country. It boasts an A rating in the State of Florida and has many choices available at the Elementary, Middle and High School levels. School assignment is made based on your home address, so choosing the right neighborhood is critical for families. Besides the assigned school, there are many other options:

There are magnet schools available in the Arts, Math, Science, Technology, Languages, Environment at Elementary, Middle and High School levels. Students must apply to the program and meet certain criteria to be accepted. Admission to these programs is fairly competitive.

International Baccalaureate

The IB program is available at the Elementary, Middle and High School levels and students are assigned to one of three High Schools based on the home address. This popular program now includes Robinson, along with Hillsborough and King High Schools. Admission to this program is very competitive.

Top 100 High School rankings by Newsweek

The two IB schools in the County Hillsborough and King, ranked 21 and 73, respectively. Plant High School scored a 73, the only non-IB school to make the list. The Plant High School district is consistently a top choice for relocating families. Parents can check their childs grades online .

The district also offers school choice and special assignment at space-available schools.

The district is very tech savvy with a comprehensive web site, online grades and an online system where parents can put money on their childs lunch account and then check to see what they ate for lunch. I love it! Free breakfast is provided for all students in the district!
