When it comes to finding the ideal school for your child, I always recommend that my homebuyers conduct their own research regarding this specific topic.  When it comes to finding a school that matches your child’s abilities, “one-size doesn’t fit all” so I have a rule to never recommend local schools.  For your info, Clermont are planning to open 2 new schools between 2021-2024 with both being Kindergarten through to 8th grade.  Click to research available schools.
