Although a county in themselves, the San Juan Islands are such a comparatively small market that they compare best against similar exurban waterfront areas around Puget Sound. They are an ideal location for family compounds of affluent urbanites living in Seattle, the Eastside or Vancouver, British Columbia. There are several schools of high quality in the San Juan Islands. Friday Harbor High School and Orcas Island High School are both ranked highly by U.S. News. Spring Street International School in Friday Harbor is an SEVP school with a substantial number of overseas students. People come to the islands to escape the city and, for these residents, remoteness is a feature rather than a baller of island living.
