Decent, but not good. My girlfriend that lived on Flora Springs lied about her address, and transferred her daughter from the local school.
I am currently looking to buy. The previous reviews are from "Home Owners". Most have an interest in upholding the value of their investment.
The homes in this area have taken a drive by 50% and are still falling. Hillsborough Co Prop Search: (http://www.hcpafl.org). The sheriff I spoke to informed me of the ever present and growing gang problem S. Fork suffers.
The three surrounding communities look like the slums. Consecutively, each according to age looks worse. Take a drive through Summerfield (the community across the street) and then through South Fork street by street. Remember, Summerfield was built 1st.
I would give the area 2 stars, save the obvious risk.

Spoto high school is crowded has fights and if you child has a disability they will try to send you to a charter school. Guinta middle school is also full of fights. There is always applying for a magnet school. But the neighborhood is very nice, you get what you pay for. schools you do not pay for therefore you take what you get.

It looks as if the schools in this zip code are part of Hillsborough County Public Schools, http://www.sdhc.k12.fl.us/. You can find out more about the schools in that district at this page at the state department of education website, http://fcat.fldoe.org/results/default.asp. As you can see from the site, you can get school-level data reports, by selecting that you want to explore the school level, Hillsborough district, a specific year, the grade levels, and the subject areas. Once you know the schools you might wish your kids to attend, you can then use this site to make some comparisons between those schools.

Hope this is helpful. I am not a real estate agent but a school person that wants parents to get the best info when it comes to their kids and their schools. Good luck with your move!

Schools in area are currently rated A. It is a rural area with lots of new growth and subdivisions. Mall and hospital slated to be started soon and close to interstates. Easy commute to downtown Tampa and MacDill.
