Both have their good and bad points but I've gotta disagree with the 80's/90's development of Coconut Creek since I lived there in the early 60's.

Unless you can afford to put you kids in private them remainder of their school years I would highly recommend moving to Coconut creek or Coral springs where they can attend public. Ive lived in Pompano beach for 7years now. There are some bad parts especially as you get closer to dixie. If you prefer Pompano I would stay as far east as possible. The school's are not good. There is Norcrest elementary which is good but middle school and high schools are not good. We are facing that issue now with our kids approaching middle. The best advice i can give you is make sure you move to a good area with good public schools. I wish we would have known about that before we moved here.
