I have been enrolled in two, going on three Seminole County affiliated schools within my years of living in Florida. Millennium Middle and Seminole High School are two schools that have prepared me adequately to be successful in the future.

This county is clean, just north of Orlando, and generally safe. There's plenty of food options, a nearby mall, and its hosts Seminole State College of Florida, a great college.
Lovely place with good food! I actually feel safe walking by myself outside, which has been a first for me since I previously lived the majority of my life in a not-so-great city. There are lots of places to hang out with friends, shop, and relax.
