    Welcome to Tampa. If you are more specific about where you and your husband are working, I can provide useful information. Tampa has a lot of Indian population perhaps not as much you see in California. Tampa itself has several pockets of Indian population. New Tampa is another developing area. St.Petersburg is the other side of the Bay area. We have another city called "Clearwater" which has a beautiful white sand beach. There are some great schools in each one of these places.

    Thanks much for your post. My husband's office is near the Tampa Airport.
    30 minutes drive is okay for us.
    Our biggest concern are the schools and safety wherever we choose to live.
    Most people seem to suggest private schools in Florida in general.Can you advise?
    Thanks very much.

    So, we have shortlisted Tampa Palms Elementary/ Pride Elementary School and Leila Davis Elementary in Clearwater. Any thoughts on these schools or area is much appreciated.
    Also Are the admissions easy in public schools? We plan to move by summer,so is there a deadline for admissions in Florida public schools?

    Hi Niru,

    I have recently moved to Tampa from India. Was going through the forums on IndusLadies and found your query. Would like to ask you about your move, which apartment you took. My husband and I have also shortlisted Tampa palms and pride elementary school for our 51/2 year old daughter. So which one did you select for your child. School is important as we would then take up an apartment in that district only. Did you find others in the Indian community. I was previously in NJ where as you know there is a big community. Seems like I am in the exact situation you were a year ago. Would appreciate if you can respond and give some inputs.

    Thanks
    Nidhi
