Where You Choose To Live May Depend On What School Your Children Will Attend

Our beloved Northern Palm Beach County is blessed with some of the most beautiful property Florida has to offer. On top of that, we have some of the best schools in the county. This should be an area of interest for those with young children. A good school zone could drastically affect your property's value. Many buyers with younger families rule out neighborhoods/homes just because of their school affiliation. Parents look into the future and choose or not choose properties based on where their young children will attend high school in 10-15 years.

Which school zone is your home in? Or, if you buy that home you've been considering which school zone will you be in? Here's the best place to find that information:

Which are the most desirable school zones in Northern Palm Beach County? Here's the best place to find that information:

This webpage will give you the grades given to high schools for the fiscal year of 2012. Riviera Beach's magnet school, Suncoast Academy, ranked highest in the county. Jupiter High School ranked 6th out of 25 non-charter schools in the county. Dwyer High School, on the Palm Beach Gardens/Jupiter border, ranked 12th. Scores are given with a maximum of 1,600 points and schools need at least 1,050 points to be "A" rated. The average score for the county was 1,175 points. Jupiter High scored 1,322 points and Dwyer High earned 1,154 points.

The schools are "graded" based on performance and learning gains in the subjects of math, reading, science and writing. Factors such as participation and performance in accelerated curriculum, graduation rate, and at-risk graduation rate are also weighed in the scoring system.

Some popular neighborhoods in the Jupiter High School zone include Rialto, The Shores of Jupiter, Olympus, Maplewood, Paseos, and Egret Landing.

Some family-oriented developments in the Dwyer High School zone are San MicheleEvergrene, Mallory Creek of AbacoaEastpointe, and Newhaven.
