What is the advantage of buying a home in a Newland community?

When buying a home in a Newland community, you’ll find that it’s more than a few streets or a single neighborhood. FishHawk Ranch™ was planned from the ground up with an overall vision of what life will be like for the residents. Careful consideration is given to how multiple neighborhoods connect with retail town centers, the homebuilders who will build the new homes, what schools are needed, and what kinds of parks, walking trails, and open spaces are best for the people who will live there.   


What school will my children attend if we live in FishHawk Ranch?

The Hillsborough County School District determines the school boundaries and student assignments. Currently, three elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school serve all of the children living in the FishHawk Ranch™ community. All of these schools are located either inside or within 1.5 miles of the community. School assignment boundaries can change at any time.  For more information visit  


Can I use all of the pools and clubhouses if I buy a home in FishHawk Ranch?

FishHawk Ranch™ is comprised of four separate Community Development Districts (CDD) and three separate Homeowners Associations (HOA). Residents of the FishHawk Ranch community do not have access privileges to all amenities owned and/or operated by each respective CDD and HOA. Access to amenities is determined by the location of a residential unit, and whether that residential unit is situated within the jurisdiction of a CDD and membership in a particular HOA.
