SARASOTA COUNTY SCHOOLS

 

Sarasota County’s Public School District currently ranks tenth among Florida’s 66 counties; which are collectively shown to constitute one of the most improved statewide school systems in the country. People actually leave California, once known for having one of the best school systems in the country, so that their children can attend school here. One school in Sarasota County alone —Osprey’s Pine View School for the Gifted—has won something of a trifecta among the state’s public schools. Pine View—which accepts students into grades two through 12—is at once rated the best elementary school, the best middle school and the best high school in the State of Florida, based on FCAT reading and math scores compiled by Schooldigger.com, a web site that empowers parents to access detailed profiles of over 136,000 schools across America. As well, Business Week magazine put Pine View at the top of the list for “Best Overall Academic Performance” among all public high schools in Florida; and in 2008 ranked it among the 11 best high schools in America. At practically the same time, U.S. News & World Report also named Pine View the eleventh best high school in the nation.

For parents intent on a more traditional private school education for their children, the region offers more than 20 such private and parochial schools; most of which are united in their efforts to prepare students for the rigors of academic and campus life at America’s best colleges and universities.
