I went to college at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale so I know your state very well. I was raised in Miami and know the Brickell area and the entire South Florida corridor. I am happy to educate you about living, working and playing in Miami and the do's and don't's. I have over 25 years experience and also have an 18 year daughter. So, I fully understand your concerns and what you are trying to achieve.
Please contact me at 954-415-1155 so that we can discuss further or you can email me at email@example.com

Also some magnets schools which are by application only based on academic performance or particular skills.
Charter Schools are tuition freeand do not have residential boundaries. They are some in the area but require an application due to limited capacity. Visit county's website for more information. http://charterschools.dadeschools.net/sh13.html.
Visit greatschools.org for school reviews and visit the schools to gain insight of curriculum. Good luck. Any questions feel free to contact me.

I would suggest doing a little research in areas you are considering . My dade county public school system has a great website with all the rankings of the schools . I would go on there and see where the best high schools are .

Glad to hear you're making the switch! If I had to suggest a good high school, I would really take a look at Alonzo and Tracy Mourning High School as I have a lot of parents who have moved around Miami just to have their children attend.
Furthermore, Brickell is a very fast-paced environment that's generally tailored towards working professionals, in my opinion; but you won't know until you see it, right?
Take a look at my Trulia profile for my contact information and let me know if you should ever have any questions.
P.s. I've included a link to a website that may also be helpful to you as well.
Good luck and hope to speak with you soon!
