Pamela Syverson Labrato, Sarasota school system has a broad spectrum of educational programs. You would be most familiar with the typical district schools for the neighborhood. There are also Charter schools, Magnet schools and Private schools.

Booker High School in addition to traditonal course selections offers a magnet program known as the Performing Arts. This is an immersion program with a focus on visual and performing arts. You might recall American Idol's season seven Syecha Mercado contestant? She was a graduate of the Booker Performing Arts Program. There is an application process that has just begun at Sarasota high school for the Cambridge AICE which allows for bright students to earn 45 college credit and a Florida bright scholars sholarship. Sarasota high school all has the Sailor Circus where student participate in their own circus.

Check out the Sarasota School website for additonal information. It would be best to google their website as there are many versions and some address specific interests.

Best regards,

Here is the link to the Sarasota County Schools where you can read about Booker High and Sarasota High -

There are not currently any active listings in Carolina Estates. Are you looking to rent or buy in there. There have been a lot of short sales and foreclosures in that community. It is near shopping, dining, beaches, schools, and Interstate. It is a well established family neighborhood. Many people buy as a first time or investment home.

If I can answer any questions or provide additional information, let me know.
