We are moving to South Florida. We want to stay within 45 minutes of North Lauderdale. Where we move will depend upon schools. We want schools that are not all 1 ethnicity and are not poor academically. So far, the schools we looked at are almost all black. Any help?

Public schools?

You need to look in Weston. Weston public schools are top rated.

Did you look in Parkland? That would be about a 45 minute drive, to the north and west of North Lauderdale. You could even look in the western section of Coral Springs (close to Sawgrass Expressway).

I second Weston. Check them out at greatschools dot org. All A rated schools and a great mix of diversity. The crime is far lower than the national average and lots of kids! LOTS of kids!

The commute from Weston to North Lauderdale would not be a pleasant one. I suggest looking at Coral Springs, Coconut Creek, and Parkland.

I commute from Weston to almost Pompano... no problem.

Sawgrass Expressway to Commerical Blvd, jump over to McNab - easy sailing on McNab through Tamarac and North Lauderdale.

Parkland has the best schools as a group, and the best resale value for your commute. Forbes magazine rated Parkland schools #1 in the US for bang for the real estate buck. New teacher at the Parkland HS moved their son from Weston for academic reasons.
