apartments near best schools orlando

As part of our series looking at affordable apartments near top public schools, Apartment Guide is looking at the city of Orlando. In most cities, finding an apartment you can afford near highly-rated schools means living far away from the center of town. Orlando is an exception. Good schools are found all over the area, not just the suburbs.

Along with some good deals in the middle of town, the best options (according to the data) can be found to be to the north and east of central Orlando.

Given that no one area dominates, we will use average property rent and school ratings throughout the Orlando area to find the specific neighborhoods and properties that appear to offer the best value for every grade level.

Top Neighborhoods

Viewing school ratings by neighborhood allows us to find the areas with superb overall schools, rather than just identifying one-off instances of an individually exemplary school. By this metric, Stoneybrook is the neighborhood in Orlando that is closest to the best overall schools.
