It all depends on what you can afford. If you are talking about public schools, in a middle class area, you should look for a place in Doral, Kendall, or Westchester. The west side of Miami tends to be more middle class and have less of a economic differential than some of the affluent areas. Some of these affluent areas border on very poverty stricken areas and have more of a economic/social difference than those. Suburbs-like anywhere else. It works for me in Kendale Lakes.

Search for public school "grades" in Miami Dade County here:

School Accountability Report...

Then browse the official map of public school boundaries here to find out where you must live to be "assigned" to the quality schools:

Dadeschools.net

It is possible to send your kids to schools outside your residence's assigned school, but it can be difficult. Magnet schools are generally highly ranked and don't have "boundaries", but they are competitive entry schools you have to apply to.

The Palmetto Sr. High feeder pattern is the best in the MDCPS system.

Palmetto has a very good reputation, as do all of its feeder schools.

Killian and Coral Gables have good reputations, as do all of their feeder schools.

South Miami has a decent reputation, but most of the elementary schools feeding into it have very good reputations and I believe the middle school has a decent reputation.

Southwest and Sunset have decent reputations, and most of the elementary and middle schools feeding into them have good reputations.

Coral Reef is a very well-regarded magnet high school to which your teen will have to apply and be admitted. You don't have to live in any particular zone to attend, and no elementary schools and middle schools feed into it.

I don't know much about Varela and Braddock high schools, but I believe their reputations are fine. Elementary and middle schools out there should be fine as well.

Coral Park has an okay reputation. I believe most of the elementary and middle schools feeding into it have reputations that vary between okay and good.

Southridge doesn't have a very good reputation, and I don't know enough about the feeder elementary and middle schools to really comment on them. I have heard that their reputations really vary.

South Dade has an okay reputation, and the schools feeding into it have varying reputations.

Homestead has a pretty bad reputation, and again, the feeder schools have varying reputations.

Keep in mind that this is all "reputation" and I am not representing any of these schools as being "good" or "bad." I know people who have Ivy League educations who graduated from "bad" high schools and dropouts who went to "good" ones. Best of luck in your relocation; let me know if you have any more questions.

Are you moving to the city of South Miami, or the general south Miami area? That makes a difference...
