  • Respect-O-Meter: Valued Neighbor

We are buying a home in oakleaf hammock and will be moving in about 3 weeks. We have a child in elementary school and I am concerned about the schools. I went to the Manatee District website and it said that the school was Blackburn. After researching this school, it is rated a "C" school with only about 55% of students passing the FCAT. I did see that there are several other options, there is an Imagine School and school choice. However, with us moving in the middle of the school year, I think he'll have to attend the neighborhood school. Does anyone have their kids in either Blackburn or the Imagine school?? If so, what do you think? If I want my child to go to another school next year, I have to register now for school choice. If anyone has any information on any of the schools, I would appreciate feedback.

We are looking forward to moving and meeting lots of new neighbors! Are there lots of kids in the community?

We live in Oakleaf Hammock and my child attendsto Virgil Mills elementary, it is a wonderful elementary school and it is very close from the community. I am not sure why your future home is zoned for Black-burns elementary.

In particular, we have two kids, boy of 7 and girl of 4, but there are other many kids around about same age in the community.
