All - relocating to the area and see good deals on houses in North Coral Springs area - Wyndam Lakes, Kensington, etc. But everything we read on school review sites says Coral Springs Middle and Forest Glen Middle have problems with gangs, lots of fights, etc. What are the thoughts of the folks here? Should we spend more to live in Weston or Parkland to avoid these middle schools and still be in good high school areas?

Ramblewood middle is good. I like coral springs,if you can go north a bit to parkland the schools are there and it borders Coral Springs. Westglades is good.

You have to be careful in Broward county because the public school system isnt so great.

Weston, p.pines, cooper city all have great schools. Just make sure you check the boundaries.

I had heard very negative things about Coral Springs Middle when we were selecting a place to live last year & the test scores are not very good. Western parts of Coral Springs (I think Coral Springs Elementary near Univ/Westview along with the other school Westview/Coral Ridge are the two other feeder schools outside of Parkland) feeds into Westglades located in Parkland (for now anyway) and it is considered much better, although over crowded. It seems that western Broward County is out of middle school space, however, with the current funding situation a new middle school will probably not be built soon.
I know many families through scouting that are applying to Coral Springs charter school to stay out of Coral Springs Middle- but it is a charter & also the test scores did not impress me.
I would recommend trying to choose a home that is zoned for Westglades.
Good luck with the hunt!
