There was a small community of Koreans in the downtown area, at a short walking distance of MDCC Wolfson there were several Korean restaurants.

What I worry about is because of dominant % of one language users, I was just worried that my daughter would have hard time to make friends. Kids here with foreign parents (we have Indian, Korean, Chinese and Mexican friends) speak their own languages within family but they speak English to outside friends. I was worndering if it is the same, or a little different (as I see some school websites, many top ranked magnet schools emphasize Spanish curriculum.. It looked as if we won't be welcomed) So it is not how I feel about Hispanic Culture. It is about how it will be like to an already minority girl in US. Well, thank you for your opinion. My daughter is rather shy and quiet. I will think all over it again.
I recommend that you find a place in the Cooper City/Davie area, where there is more of a mix of ethnicities. Miami-Dade is Hispanic saturated and while all kids will speak English, there will be a huge cultural gap between your child and her Hispanic classmates.

If you must stay in Dade, the Palmetto Sr. High feeder pattern is your best bet.

Davie, mainly West Davie, is famous for their KKK chapters staffed by rednecks and uncouth bluecollars expelled from Dade. They have been trying to gentrify the area during the last 40 years, but there are trailer parks and areas that are not safe not even for white people. There are also illegals from Central America. The area is either too posh or too poor and depressing.

They have a large wooden cross (I don't know if it's still there) at one intersection that represents the Klan. Local police, I don't know now, loves to harass non-rednecks or people with a Dade plate (this might have changed).

The cultural gap between Hispanic middle class kids in Dade and your kids is far narrower that kids in the aforementioned areas.
