Schools help to shape the future of the world. It’s where teachers pave the way for our children, where children forge lifelong friendships, and where they are given the tools that will enable them to succeed in the future.

Windermere is close enough to the city to enjoy all of the fun found in Orlando while still being remote enough to enjoy the natural beauty of Central Florida. And being surrounded by some of the area’s best lakes certainly makes it easy to want to spend as much time outside as possible.
Local parks are a fantastic place to bond with other families, meet up with friends, and let children get their energy out. These parks have everything that you need, from playground equipment to hiking trails.
Most of these parks are maintained by the city and are upheld to the highest standards. With clean facilities, sculpted grounds, and routine maintenance, your children will have the time of their lives.
