There are a few good schools around. Some private and some public.
My e-mail is Luisa.email@example.com you can contact me any time if you are still deciding where to buy.
Or,depending on where you'll be working, look at buying in S. Tampa and just take the Howard Franklin Bridge to work.
I'm a Mortgage Broker, not a realtor, so I have no dog in the hunt. Contact me for some insight from a native and a quote on a 95% purchase loan with closing costs paid for you.
There is even a waterfront community which goes to an "A" ranked school which is uncommon in the water areas in which I also specialize.
Email me or feel free to call me to answer any questions.

As far as homes go, your price range enables you to find homes in many of our beautiful neighborhoods; whether you are interested in being near the vibrant downtown, on or near the beaches, or somewhere in between. I promise you will not be disappointed!
I do hope this helps you in your search.
As a former educator, one thing I would nt do is overlook your teenagers input in this relocation project. They could suprise you with what they will be able to contribute and it will provide them with valuable ownership of the process.
An investment in a few day trip to visit the area for the specific purpose of exploring the various locations may help as well.

Other beautiful neighborhoods that are closer to the water and would require flood insurance are Placido Bayou, Old Northeast, Coffeepot, Snell Isle, Shore Acres, Venetian Isle. These neighborhoods would all put you in Northeast High.
Believe it or not, these two groups of areas I gave you are all adjacent to each other within the group and close to each other overall.
You can get information on the schools at https://www.pcsb.org.
Shorecrest Prep is also a fantastic private option and that site was already listed for you.
With your budget, there will be options to make you happy in any of the areas I mentioned. These are the most beautiful spots in St. Pete - short of a downtown high rise. But the inventory is very low and you probably do not have the budget for that.
Please contact me through my profile page if I can help. It would be my honor to help your relocation go as smooth as possible. Best wishes and success.
This area has many possibilities for you in that range. Depends on what kind of lifestyle you are searching for:
If you are looking for boating and beach lifestyle you might consider Treasure Island, St Pete Beach, Tierra Verde, if you prefer a more traditional brick streets and tree lined neighborhood near all the shops and restaurants of downtown then Old North East St Petersburg would be a good option. We also have gated communities with golf and yacht clubs. I terms of High Schools if you want private Shorecrest, St Pete Catholic, and Admiral Farragut Academy are options. If your prefer public schools St Pete High school is worth looking into. You may also apply for a spot at a fundamental high school which have strict standards and very involved parents. Check out http://www.pcsb.org
It would be my please sure to help you find the right place for your lifestyle here in St Petersburg.
I would love to help. One of the best private high schools in the area is Shorecrest Prep you can find more information at: http://www.shorecrest.org/
As for public schools one great option is St Petersburg High School. For more information: http://www.stpetehigh.com/ (They have the only IB program in the area). This zoning would be changing for 2012-2013.
I would be happy to help you further if you need it. Hope this helps!
