Last week the Florida public schools held their FCAT exams and happily finished with that task for another year. Over the summer, the results will be published and the schools will be graded accordingly. For those who are starting a home search and thinking about school selection, the community of Trinity in Pasco County may be on your list. Trinity is in the southwest region of Pasco county, just north of Pinellas County.
Pasco County as a whole is growing steadily, and it’s also improving steadily in terms of school progress. Last year, Pasco County received the top ranking of an A overall, with a graduation rate above the state average. Over 72% of Pasco’s schools received an excellent grade of an A or a B. New schools continue to spring up each year in Pasco, and teachers and administrators are rising to the task to create quality schools here.
One example of Pasco’s progress is the community of Trinity. The two public elementary schools here are Trinity Elementary and Trinity Oaks Elementary, both A rated schools. The middle school that these two elementrary schools feed into is called Seven Springs Middle School, also an A rated school. JW Mitchell High School, a B rated school, sits adjacent to the middle school and missed getting the A rating in 2008 by just a few points. In addition to student scores, 95% of students in the school must take the FCAT test in order for the school to receive the coveted A rating.
Trinity has several great private schools to choose from as well. These schools are not required to administer the FCAT test and so do not have a school rating. Genesis School in nearby New Port Richey offers something for those as young as 2 years old and goes all the way up to 5th grade. Genesis is commited to developing the unique qualities present in each child. It’s sister school, Genesis Preparatory School, continues with 6th grade up to 12th grade and is a member of the Schiller International Schools. Another school with a flexible learning environment is Solid Rock Community School. Unlike traditional schools, Solid Rock doesn’t use grade levels to group students. Instead, the school takes a customized approach for each student, and encourages childrn to learn at their own pace. Solid Rock offers a curriculum for first through 12th grade.
So if you haven’t considered looking for a home in Trinity, you should add it to your list. Trinity is just one of the great communities in Pasco county that offers affordable homes, family neighborhoods and great schools. Trinity Real Estate has increased in popularity over the years but remains one of the best values in the Tampa Bay area.
With all the benefits of big-city life and all the comforts of small-town living, Oldsmar, Florida has it all. Located on the northern tip of Tampa Bay, between Tampa and Clearwater, Oldsmar is a century-old community founded in 1913 by Oldsmobile creator, Ransom Eli Olds. Expected to be a big-time oil-producing community due to its placement near one of the four oil wells in Florida, Oldsmar did not produce the riches Olds had expected. However, it does provide other types of riches just waiting to be collected.
With its close proximity to both Gulf beaches and Lake Tarpon, Oldsmar is an ideal community for those who love being near the water. Home to protected wetlands and Harbor Palms Nature Park, Oldsmar also offers a tranquil setting of beautiful parks with scenic views and wildlife, perfect for those who love the outdoors and outdoor activities.
However, if youâ€™re looking for something a little more exciting, Oldsmar offers that, too. With just a short drive to Tampa or Clearwater, big-city excitement and opportunity are just moments away.
If youâ€™re looking for a community that combines the best of small-town living with big-city opportunity, Oldsmar Real Estate will fit the bill. Though not rich in oil, Oldsmar is rich in community, beauty, and opportunity. As its welcome sign reads, itâ€™s â€œA Great Place to Live and Workâ€.
