Public Schools in Tampa Bay

As Realtors, we often get asked about what areas in Tampa Bay have best schools. The problem is that the law prevents real estate agents from giving an opinion on schools since it would cause swaying home buyers to certain areas. The best thing we can do for you is to provide you with sources to do your own research. This page has links and info to help you determine the school district, locate schools by address and research school grades and accountability reports. Looking for Private Schools in Tampa?
