Details About Longwood, Florida

Longwood boasts a population of 13,600 as of the last census, taken in 2010. However, it is part of the much larger Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford Statistical Area, which is home to over two million residents. The city itself occupies just over five square miles, and roughly one-third of the population is made up of families with at least one child at home who is under the age of 18.

Longwood has a history that includes Seminoles, Creek Indians and some early colonial settlers. Longwood is located just 15 miles north of Downtown Orlando, making it easily accessible via I-4.

Education and Schooling in Longwood

The city of Longwood falls under the jurisdiction of the Seminole County School System. The city boasts three public elementary schools, two public middle schools and one primary public high school. However, there are also private school options nearby, as well as other schools still within the Seminole County School System.

Most of Longwood's schools are ranked at an 8 or 9 out of a 1-10 scale, a great sign if you have children and are planning a move to the area.

Advantages of Living in Longwood

There are so many benefits that living in Longwood can offer. Despite being so close to a major urban area, Longwood boasts a range of outdoor and rural experiences that range from nature preserves to boating opportunities.

If you plan to work while living in Longwood, there are plenty of major employers right in the city, including hospitals and shipping companies, but it is also possible to have a short commute right into Orlando.

All of the big-city amenities that most people desire will be 20 minutes away, offering quick access to Orlando International Airport as well as Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, not to mention countless shopping malls upscale dining and nightlife options. However, those urban attractions won't impact the suburban, safe and family-oriented atmosphere in Longwood.

With so many positive attributes, it is easy to see the appeal of living in the charming, beautiful and perfectly located Longwood, Florida.
