One of Sarasota County's greatest assets is its education system, from public schools top-ranked in the state to nationally recognized institutions of higher learning.  There are also unique opportunities for adults who have decided they have more to learn.

Rated among the top 17 percent of U.S. school districts by Expansion Management magazine (February 2005), Sarasota County was the only Florida school district to receive the magazine's “Gold Medal” rating.  The ranking is based on graduation rates, college board scores, student-to-teacher ratios, expenditures per student, teacher salaries and the level of adult education in the district. 

The county is also among Florida's best when it comes to standardized test scores, earning it a spot on Money Magazine's top 100 list.  Additionally,  Sarasota County tops the state in the number of Five Star Schools, which are recognized for their community involvement.
