If you have not seen our previous info on the top five best things about Carrollwood, here is a quick infographic.
Coming from someone who moved to the Tampa area relatively recently, I still try to view these areas more critically to reflect the viewpoint of someone unfamiliar with the area looking to move here. I also make it a priority to be knowledgeable about the things locals care about and the things they hate. Let’s dive into my list of the top 5 worst things about Carrollwood.
Now is a good time to highlight Hillsborough County’s magnet school system. In the U.S. education system, magnet schools are public schools with specialized courses or curricula. “Magnet” refers to how the schools draw students from across the normal boundaries defined by authorities as school zones that feed into certain schools. Many people who reach out to me wanting to move to the area prioritize areas with good schools and unfortunately Carrollwood is not considered one of those areas. It is a down-side overall that public schools in the area may not be up to par for your family, leaving you to possibly have to turn to some kind of magnet system. Areas such as Lutz, Cheval, Palm Harbor, and Westchase are more the winners in this area.
