This district has a very good school system and they have a lot of good programs to offer. Riverview offers a astronomy program for anyone who is interested in anything like that. Sarasota High school has also updated the whole campus, making it all almost brand new! Booker High school also offers an amazing Visual Performing Arts program for anyone out there that likes any of the arts.

I have been living and going to schools within Sarasota County my whole life. Whether it be elementary, middle, or high school, I have always had a good experience in Sarasota County, Florida!
I like Sarasota schools. My son feels safe on campus. The school is good to contact the parents when information is needed. We like the Administrators at Sarasota High school. We feel that my son has gotten a great education through the AICE program at Sarasota High. There are improvements happening around campus. The new cafeteria is very nice. The new gymnasium is very nice, They could improve the football stadium and the workout rooms. We have enjoyed many of the arts events at Sarasota. We have loved the Band as well as the chorus and the theater plays and productions.
