There is more than 19 miles of uncrowded cinnamon colored sand with plenty of room for sports, fishing or just relaxing in the sun. The vibe is low-key and laid-back. You are more likely to see dolphins and turtles than rowdy spring breakers, and entertainment comes in the form of the colorful characters who populate the town.

What are Palm Coast Schools Like?

One of the most often asked questions by families! We understand it’s important as most parents want their kids to not just succeed but excel, be better than the rest, get a head start, enjoy sports or do advanced course, depending on age of course. That’s a hard question for Realtors to answer because it can be subjective. Here’s what I can tell you. According to GreatSchools.org Flagler Schools are rated 7/10. According to Florida School Grades, Flagler Schools 2013-2014 grades were A’s & B’s.

Florida has an open enrollment policy, which means that if your child attends or is assigned to a low-performing school in the district, you have the right to use an Opportunity Scholarship to attend a higher-performing school (called intradistrict choice), including public schools, public charter schools and private schools, as long as there is space. Some districts will allow your child to attend a school in a neighboring district (called interdistrict choice). Under the federal No Child Left Behind law, students attending a Title I school designated as “in need of improvement” have the right to attend a higher performing school in the district.

Commuting From Town

What is commuting like from Palm Coast?

Towns with large employers include Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, and St. Augustine.. The average work commute is 30 minutes. Jacksonville city is a larger area of employment and the drive to the city is about an hour.

My Favorite Thing About Palm Coast Florida

Near the water! You have the intracoastal waterway or the Atlantic Ocean. I also love Palm Coast because it is a quiet, not overly crowded, clean community, great city to raise a family. Close to everything you need, busier cities only a short distance away. Tons of nature trails, boating, fishing, camping, and of course the beach. It offers affordable housing for those on a tighter budget or luxurious living for those who are looking for their home right on the ocean. As for my clients, those who decided living in Palm Coast was what they wanted, the reasons often came back to schools, home pricing, location, and proximity to work.

Relocating to Palm Coast

As your agent, I can help with your relocation. I understand that it can be a stressful process, different for each family member. The addition of selling and buying a new home, often on a tight timeframe, adds to the project. Then there’s a new job, new schools and learning a new community. Because I have been in your shoes, I am perfectly positioned to help you. You can rest assured that I am not here just to get a quick sale. I am here to help you buy the right new home, to find the right neighborhood for you and your family. Call me to let me know your relocation plans, i would love to hear them.
