My family and I are planning to move to Brickell next year. The only problem is that we are trying to find a good high school for our 16 year old daughter. There is apparently no high school in Brickell and the high school that she would be zoned for is known to be an awful school and we would prefer that she does not attend there. Does anyone know any good high schools that she could attend? We are looking into private and charter schools as well so if anyone has information about those, let me know.

Thank you

We have beaten this topic to death lately. Look through some recent threads.

The short answer is look southward in Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, and northern Pinecrest, among a few others. Too many in these areas to go through one-by-one on this forum, both private (denominational and non-denominational) and public (charter and magnet). Not sure, doggiebus, if this reference is allowed, but go to greatschools.com and put in zip codes 33133, 33134, 33146, 33143, 33156.

In any case, the closest best one to Brickell should be Ransom Everglades, a private non-denominational, in Coconut Grove.

Good Luck!

We should make a sticky with all the most asked questions and give people resources. like schools information, how to find out what area is serviced by which schools, hospitals, parks, farmers markets etc. etc.

At the high school level it could range from around $8,000 for a Catholic/Christian school, plus donations, to $22,000-$28,000 for a non-denominational. Either way, they also nickel and dime you for various things and events throughout the year, not to mention school uniforms and other clothing, insurance, application and registration fees, etc.

The problem with the public schools, even a magnet or charter, may be social environment and accountability.

I will second the best private schools in miami will be expensive. Magnet Schools aren't an option your first year. Before you can apply for a magnet school your child will have to spend one year in a regular public school to be eligible to apply.

Brickell really isn't a family kind of place in my opinion. You may want to look into one of the suburbs with good high schools.
