Very often I find myself assisting families with children, helping them to find the ideal new home. One of the very first questions they ask is: what about the school district?
There are many fine public schools in our area and many times we know about them through other families. Rather than simply stating that a school has an excellent reputation. I always direct my customers to the Miami-Dade School Performance web page. There you can view yearly grading on the schools as a whole and also by subject. You can view specific information about the school, class size, special programs or features, school boundaries, demographics, etc. View the link I have included and save it (it will always be handy): http://oada.dadeschools.net/schoolperformancegrades/schoolgrades.asp
