This will be a very difficult task for you and I do not envy you one bit. My opinion would first be to check the crime rate in and around the areas you are interested in. Not just pedifiles, but see how much of the stats are young teens. The rural areas surrounding Jacksonville may be your best bet as far as safer and above average schools. Fleming Island is a wonderful place, but costs of living are extreme in coastal towns; not to mention, yearly taxes and community fees and dues. South of Jacksonville, towards Flagler beach and St. Augustine are nice. Going West of Jacksonville, you have some very nice rural living with the country feel. In places like Lake Butler to Middleburg and surrounding areas you will find the schools are generally A+ schools, with Lake Butler having one of the state's highest A+ schools. The standardized rules and regulations for students aren't so strict and scary for the kids.
I hope this helps. I'm not an agent, just a parent. Before I moved to Florida, I had to do my research too.

We moved to clay county Eagle Harbor Fleming Island Fl when our son was 13. It has been a wonderful place to raise a child. Good luck.

I am in Jacksonville and strong recommend you look outside Du val County if you are looking at public schools. If you must work in Jacksonville try northern St. John's or Clay counties and you can drive into Jacksonville. Your children will have a better education.

Dear Dean,

You may already be tied in to the Jacksonville area but if you are still scouting locations you might also want to consider the Jupiter area. Having been from Jacksonville to Key West and Naples to Pensacola and most points in between I know the state very well. There are some amazing places to call home but many differences in weather, lifestyle and landscape; stay below Vero Beach on the east coast and Sarasota on the west coast if you want the best winter weather. The best place I can point you for a little additional information is a brief articleI did about the Jupiter area;

As a resident of Jupiter, I work throughout Palm Beach and Martin Counties, and a great place to start is by defining your goals and comparing the lifestyles and housing costs of areas that you are interested in. There are so many different options available to us that reside in the state and I have selected Jupiter because of the quality of life that we enjoy. From my viewpoint, there is no finer place to reside that the Jupiter area; from the best schools, to a fantastic economy fueled by many factors and of course the wonderful facilities of Max Planck and Scripps Institute, to incredible unspoiled beaches, unbelievable dining and shopping options, numerous boating and golf opportunities, uncrowded streets, low crime and just the overall kindness of our residents. Recently we were out with a client form New York who commented on just how nice everyone is; and why not as we are truly lucky to live in Paradise.

I work almost entirely as a buyers agent in Palm Beach and Martin Counties and certainly would be honored to be on the list of Realtors® you interview and happy to be of assistance in any way that I can. If you are in the area and would like a tour I would enjoy showing you why I am so fortunate to call Jupiter my hometown.

I hope this information is helpful but if you need anything additional please do not hesitate to give me a call.

Always at Your Service,
