There are great school in the area, I lived by Miami Shores and have a 5 year old son.
If you'd like your children to attend private schools, Miami Country Day School is definitely one of the best schools in South Florida or Cushman.
If you would like to go to public school, Miami shores school.

Also, there are some great homes for sale in that area. In Florida, the buyer does not pay the agent a commission, only the seller does.
Let me know if you want me to email you listings for you to view as I know the area very well.

I look for ward to hearing from you soon.

Many familed have enjoyed the pride of educating their children from preK to college right here in our village.
Many Churches offer quality care and education for pre-schoolers and then move on to our Miami
Shores Elementary school, Doctors Charter School, St. Rose of Lima or Miami Country Day. After high school it is a short ride to Miami Dade Jr. college, Barry U or Johnson & Wales. It's a great place to
grow-our country club facilities, swimming pool, tennis courts and golf maintain a high qualifty of life for social activities. Our VILLAGE PLACE along NE 2nd Avenue hosts our police station, village hall,
library, post office, professional offices as well as great restaurants, Childrens' Playhouse theatre,and boutique shops.
