Is Downtown a walkable neighborhood?

Quality of life is subjective and can depend on a variety of things. While some home buyers might want a walkable city that offers ample things to do closer to where they live, others might prefer the suburbs with their tranquil streets, peace and quiet, and proximity to open spaces and nature. For some, the idea of being car-dependent is unacceptable, while for others, a reasonable drive time to their favorite weekend hangout is a dream come true.

What are the best schools in Downtown, Miami?

The definition of a good school can vary depending on what people are looking for - some might be interested in schools which have great sports programs, while others might be looking at schools that are better at preparing kids for higher education. Since perspective can make a difference, independent bodies like Niche assign ratings to schools and are commonly used by parents to make a decision. However, you are encouraged to verify these ratings through other sources including visiting the campus.

It is not surprising to note that places with highly-rated public schools tend to have relatively higher home prices because of the perpetual demand for those neighborhoods. If you have children or plan on having in the future, checking out the nearby schools and their ratings is a good idea. North Dade Center for Modern Languages Elementary School (#16 in metro), Somerset Academy Charter Elementary School - South Miami (#49 in metro), iPrep Academy (#2 in metro) are among 7 A+/A rated public elementary schools in the district. Archimedean Middle Conservatory (AMC) (#12 in metro), Jose Marti MAST 6-12 Academy (#5 in metro), Mast Academy (#2 in metro) are among 10 A+/A rated public middle schools in the district. Design & Architecture Senior High School (#16 in metro), Terra Environmental Research Institute (#18 in metro), Doral Academy Charter High School (#25 in metro) are among 19 A+/A rated public high schools in the district.

Choosing an area with good school rating consistency is important. While the area you’re looking at right now might have great elementary schools for your young children, it’s well worth examining the middle and high schools they’ll grow up to attend. The nearby elementary school, middle school and high school quality ratings from Niche are very similar. If you have children and desire a consistent school experience as they grow up, this neighborhood may be a good place to plant long-term roots.
