If you need a good source for local school information, you might wish to call the Collier County Schools at (239) 377-0001 or the Lee County Schools at (239) 454-6130. Besides these two main sources, we have a fine assemblage of private schools! We have raised 2 children that attended Collier County Schools and our experience was fabulous! We benefitted from Golden Gate Elementary School, Big Cypress Elementary School, Poincianna Elementary School, Pine Ridge Middle School, Gulfview Middle School and Lely High School! Why so many schools, you may wonder? We never moved throughout this period but our children were both placed in "gifted" programs and were moved to the appropriate centers for these activities for the appropriate grade level. We also participated in baseball, volleyball, track, swimming, diving, model UN, and a number of excellent open houses! We found our teaching staff to be excellent and the considerations made on behalf of our children to meet our anticipations! Dive in! Rest assured we have good schools and excellent teachers in our midst!
