Here is an excellent resource to gain insight into school quality. Type in the ZIP code, then click on the map for the individual school's data. Private/parochial schools are listed on the map, but they do not provide data.
We moved to this area 8 years ago and schools were our top priority in choosing our neighborhood. Our daughter was entering 1st grade and is now in high school. We have been very satisfied with the quality of education she is receiving. Especially check out Spruce Creek High School. It is often nationally ranked and they have the International Baccalaureate Program, Finance School, and some other great programs.
If you go to the "compare areas" section you can also look at area demographics. Average incomes, educational attainment levels, crime risk - you name it, is displayed their.
Better yet - my wife and I are both full time agents and can answer any questions you have. I am sure we can find somehting that fits your wants and still meets your needs.
