More about Sarasota FloridaSarasota Florida real estate

Sarasota is a city in Sarasota County on the southwestern coast of the state of Florida. It's known for its beautiful beaches, fabulous amenities and resorts. The Sarasota city limits area actually contains several keys including Lido Key, St. Armand's Key, Otter Key, Casey Key, Coon Key, Bird Key, and several portions of Siesta Key. Longboat Key is one of the largest keys that separate the bay from the Gulf of Mexico and was evenly divided by a new County line back in 1921. Part of the key that is parallel to Sarasota extends along the County line to the bayfront of the mainland. Over the years, the city limits of Sarasota have expanded significantly, especially with the boom of real estate in the early 20th century. The expanse reached almost 70 mi.² however, with the crash in the 1920s, the city limits actually began to contract, shrinking to less than 1/4 of that area. Today, Sarasota has a total area of about 26 mi.², 15 mi.² of that being land. The town was incorporated in 1902.

Booker High School offers; VPA, many clubs, and a successful life. The teachers are outstanding and go out of their way to make sure the students are college and career ready. Booker High School also has high security which makes students feel safe. Sarasota County Schools are great!"

"Kindergarten Prep now has gone beyond VPK and has added an excellent STEM program for their Kindergarten and First Graders. Their teachers go above and beyond by helping every child succeed and challenges them to further their knowledge by using hands-on science, technology, engineering and math programs. Their Kindergarten and 1st Grade, "Knowledge Is Power" gifted classes provides a great foundation for children that need a more stimulating atmosphere. I feel my child is graduating with great confidence in every aspect of her education." - Niche.com
