Hey Nicole,

We just relocated from Baltimore to Cooper City. I have 2 kids in elementary school. We have been pleased with the schools and I was a teacher in Baltimore before we moved. In Balto. I had my kids in private school. The elementary school is HUGE but my kids have adjusted. We live in Embassy Lakes and bought a 5 bedroom house so they do exist.

Good Luck!

Default Education

Whenever people ask about schools, I always refer them to the US Chamber of Commerce state by state report on education. Of course locals will always sing the praises of their schools but I find objective third party research to be more truthful.
see the report here: U.S. Chamber of Commerce | Fighting For Your Business

Have you considered living in Palm Beach County? I am partial to Jupiter (I live here currently) and if I could live any place in SoFl it would be here. We are moving to Broward for work and while I am excited about a bigger city I don't think you can compete with North PBC in terms of family friendly and school districts.
