Hi Mike,

Take a look:

You can also drill down on test scores (and percentage of free and reduced lunch recipients) by going to the State website.

If you can transport your child you also may want to consider the free Charter Schools. You will be required to volunteer a certain number of hours and Charter Schools have more applicants than spots available so you will probably be entered into a lottery. Additionally we have Magnet Schools and even the highly acclaimed International Baccalaureate program. At the High School level it is very competitive to gain entrance but I believe at the Elementary Level it is fairly easy. May end up to be a very long day, though, if your child must take the bus to the school (& IB schools are normally in the 'hood) so you may not want your child to endure that.

If your child is a high achiever we also have the Gifted Program within the regular public school. Your child will be pulled out of Math and Science and be given higher level teaching. Some teachers may be reluctant to recommend your child (lots of paperwork for the teacher) so if you don't mind paying a PhD to evaluate your child then you will nott have to jump through the hoops if your child qualifies. I can recommend Kathleen Hague-Armstrong PhD, 813.987.9094 (not sure if she is still in Tampa, she evaluated my daughter about 10 years ago!) She came to our house and administered a test and then I delivered the report to the school and my daughter was immediately admitted to the program, no delays.

Hope this helps.

All the best,

I visited your website and was about to contact you about purchasing a home until I noted this in your response - "May end up to be a very long day, though, if your child must take the bus to the school (& IB schools are normally in the 'hood) so you may not want your child to endure that." That was a distinctly unprofessional comment and you should be ashamed of yourself writing that, unfortunately, you are simply stating out loud what you believe and though it pains me, you have that right.
