My advice it to read and take in all that has been written but to be your own judge. Visit the school, speak with staff, students, and parents about their experiences.....You'll likely find that things aren't as bad a some would like you to believe.
Don't rush to judgment....come to your own opinion!
I moved to Lake Nona 9 years ago from Seminole Cty because of the schools. I do not regret my decision for a minute. We are a very tight knit community!
I would recommend the school to anyone and have not heard of any problems this year, but my son is now at the high school. Hope this helps!!
So placing any amount of credibility in what you hear or read from others(yes even the media) should be done with great care. In my opinion, the best impression of any school district is one that is arrived at via your own personal impression after visiting, interviewing school staff, listening to children, reviewing school/state data, etc.
It's very easy to criticize and also too easy for some to fall into the trap of someone elses bad experience. One article, complaint, or negative experience should not be allowed to create the fiber of a school's value.
