One of the biggest factors families consider when relocating is the area’s school system. South Walton has many incredible and highly accredited options for education, including programs geared toward specialized needs.

School Ratings

The Florida Department of Education grades student performance in order to provide an easily understandable measurement of the performance of a school. Schools are graded A, B, C, D, or F. There are four achievement components, four learning gains components, a middle school acceleration component, as well as a component weighing graduation rate.

Private schools are not licensed, approved, accredited, or regulated by the Department of Education.
