Ranch Colony is located in Martin County which is a different school system entirely that the schools attended by those who live just to the south in Jupiter Farms. While is is a longer trip for the kids the Martin County district has an amazing records of excellence and just celebrated their 10th straight year as an "A" rated district. Their state rankings are amazing with accolades like the #1 rating in the entire state for 8th grade writing and there is a long line of similar distinctions.
The elementary school for this area is Crystal Lake with a GreatSchools rating of 9 and it is approximately 8.2 miles away.
The middle school for this area is David Anderson with a GreatSchools rating of 7 and it is approximately 9.3 miles away.
The high school for this area is South Fork with a GreatSchools rating of 8 and it is approximately 6.6 miles away.
The ratings come from a great school resource and one of my favorite sites when it comes to school ratings. The website is http://www.greatschools.org and if you have an iPhone check out their app which is also a fantastic tool. I love their site, use it often and highly recommend it to my clients who are interested in finding the best schools for their children's education. GreatSchools profiles public, private and charter schools and has a great format for readers to leave comments. Besides their rating system the comment section is the best place to go to get real life feedback from children who attend the schools as well as their parents.
You might also want to check out the Florida Department of Education School accountability reports which are also a wealth of information and can be accessed with this link;
After doing your homework on-line I always recommend parents visit the school live and in person prior to making any purchasing decisions in that district and if you need assistance let me know as I would be happy to show you around. Ranch Acres is a great neighborhood but there are others that may meet your families needs if you would rather stay in the Palm Beach County district. I hope this information is helpful but if you need anything additional please do not hesitate to give me a call.

Here is a link from my website where you can type in an address and it will let you know what schools the kids will go to. http://www.jupiterhomeseller.com/Nav.aspx/Page=http://gis.pa
I believe all of Ranch Colony is in Martin County so you have to go to Martin County schools. In fact one of my customers owns a small condo by the beach and they use that address to send their kids to Jupiter schools.
Hope that helps.
