My husband and 7 year old little boy live in Texas and we are going to be relocating to USVI in the next 2 years. I am just starting to research and read everything I can get my hands on at this point. Of course having a child, schooling will be very high on our priority list and then we can go from there. I know that we need to plan a trip to come visit, but I was just wanting honest feedback on which island would be best suited for us. Any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I think STT is the best of all three but different strokes for different folks. Really will depend all on what kind of lyfestyle you want to live.

STT has the most to do socially. If you’re a hermit and want country livin and few people - STX and STJ would be better options.

??

Maybe when it comes to bars and late night scene. Seems STX is constantly having big parties, parades, public celebrations/events, ag fair, mango melee, boat parade, more than I can keep track of.

if you can visit the 3 main islands. check out schools , hospitals, dr. job situation
really, you need to come visit before you even decide, especially since you have a child that will most likely attend public school, unless you can afford 15 k or more per year

Budget for around $10K a year for a private school that will probably be below the standard of Texas public schools.

I would have loved to have been raised there but would not raise a child there unless I could afford private school and still not sure.
