Top Quality Education in Coral Gables Schools

With the top ranked University of Miami located in Coral Gables, it is no wonder there is such an emphasis on the education systems in the “City Beautiful.”  One of the advantages of living in Coral Gables is the top quality education in area schools – public and private.  Students receive the highest level of learning and continue on to college and beyond.  Within the Miami-Dade School system, Coral Gables has some of the most esteemed schools as well as in the state and receives the highest ratings from state and national organizations.  Because of this, many people choose to live in Coral Gables.

Private Schools
Private schools in Coral Gables are among the best in the country offering extensive international programs and advanced studies.  While several private schools like St. Philip Episcopal School and St. Theresa Catholic School have religious affiliations, there are others such as the Riviera Day School and the French American Schoolof Miami that are considered nonsectarian.  With smaller class sizes and such a focus on academic excellence, tuition plays a huge role in the decision to place children in one of the private Coral Gables schools.  

Annual tuition associated with private schools range from about $10,000 to over $25,000 with other fees added to these amounts.  High tuition is a primary reason that many of them are situated close to upscale Coral Gables neighborhoods like Journey’s End, Gables by the Sea, Snapper Creek Lakes and more.  These neighborhoods feature Coral Gables real estate with home values topping $10 million. 

Public Schools
While Coral Gables features some of the most exclusive real estate in all of Miami Dade County, it is a city where the upper-crust and middle-class co-exist in harmony.  Many of the schools mirror the ethnic and international atmosphere that exists here.

Since there are many Coral Gables home owners who cannot (and will not) pay the tuition associated with a private school education, the public schools work hard to provide a top quality education for its children.  In fact, Coral Gables public schools are among the most renowned schools in Miami Dade and the entire state of Florida.  The highest ranked schools like George Washington Carver Middle School and Coral Gables Preparatory Academy accommodate elementary and middle school grades and receive district, state and national honors as both have the recognition of being National Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence.  George Washing Carver Middle School is also ranked as the #1 traditional middle school in the State of Florida.  High schools continue this merit pushing students to excel in their studies in order to continue their education.  Whether attending Coral Gables Senior High or the International Studies Preparatory Academy, the standard of excellence associated with our schools is very prevalent.

Top Florida Schools

No matter the approach to children’s education in Coral Gables, it is a city with filled with top rated Florida schools which creates a need for many families to relocate here.  Coral Gables real estate reflects the impact that this demand for a top quality public or private education.  Whether opting for a home in one of the gated communities or a lovely home in one of the close-knit neighborhoods in the center of the city, one thing is for sure -- a top quality school is within a short walk or ride.
