I would totally agree with Debra (she's also a friend). All of that information is good and the link will provide all the schools available. I can tell you that we are quite happy with Bonita Springs Charter School. My grandchildren attend there, but there are also many other good choices. I have one grandson in Middle School, one in High School and a granddaughter in 2nd grade at the Charter School. A personal visit is definitely an excellent way to research all of the schools.

Lee County works on a School Choice system, so although you can research the schools not all students end up in their desired school. There may be ways to get into a particular school using specific criteria. You would look throught the School Choice Link on the attached website to see if you meet any of that criteria. My child also came from NY and ended up in the Gifted Program, you may want to look into how to get into those programs. There are also Charter Schools that should be researched. My son is currently in Middle School, I have worked with the PTO's. and find the best way to get a feel is to visit during the school day.

Hi Mary,
There is a website that will help you see the rankings of schools and the neighborhoods which they a close to. When you move into the neighborhood that best suits your needs you will still be asked to rank your choices 1-4 of the school which you would like your child to attend. The only time you would have an absolute choice would be with regard to private or charter schools. Most of the children in the area that you are considering usually go to Three Oaks Middle and then on to Estero High School which is where my son attended. He ended up an average student capable of making good decisions, took some college, has an excellent paying job, very little debt and excellent ethics. Of course the school only had him about 6-7 hours a day and my husband and I did the best we could with the rest. Happy to help you.
