jackgallucci, the answer to that question is truly subjective.

Each family with children has the opportunity to visit the Sarasota County public school website for those residing in Sarasota county. There are public schools, magnet schools, charter schools and private schools.

Although Venice and Northport are part of Sarasota county their have their own municipal governments.

If you are looking at properties in the southern portion of Manatee county, most have a Sarasota mailing address, however, this is Manatee county a different county. You can also visit their website

Although Lakewood Ranch spreads across both Sarasota and Manatee counties, the residential homes are nearly all in Manatee county with commercial development in Sarasota county. The popular family neighborhoods north of the river; Ellenton, Parrish and Palmetto are also in Manatee county.

You will have to evaluate the needs of your children and those schools that best fit their needs. Some magnet schools have entrance requirements; Pineview School for the Gifted and Booker School of Performing Arts.

Both counties have done a really good job offering programs across the two counties to meet the needs of most students.

You can go to the Sarasota County Schools web site and see how each shool is rated and go to the individual school web sites if you want to learn more about each school in the area that you may be looking for a home.
