Have you decided to move to Coral Springs, Florida, but aren’t sure what to expect? In this episode of Hearty Home, I’m going to share three things you need to know before you start packing your bags. We’ll explore the location, amenities, and home prices of the area so you can see if this Broward County city is the right fit for you.
A Diverse City
If you’re moving to Coral Springs, there are three things you need to know before you start heading south. Life here is probably a little different than where you're coming from, and most people just don't know what they don't know. The first common question I get is, ‘How diverse is Coral Springs?’
According to Niche.com, Coral Springs ranks number 4 out of 380 for the most diverse suburbs in Florida. It also ranks 10 out of 1300 for the most diverse place to live in Florida. Wow, that's pretty good if you're looking for diversity. The median household income is $77,000, and 32% of its residents have a college degree.
The second common question that I get is, ‘How great are the schools?’ You're in luck, because Coral Spring schools rate an A+, according to Niche.com. These schools are made up of traditional public schools, magnet schools, and charter schools. There are also private schools around as well.
Some of the highly-rated elementary schools in the area are Coral Springs Elementary, Country Hills Elementary, Eagle Ridge Elementary, and Ramblewood Elementary. Middle Schools include Coral Springs Middle, Forest Glen Middle, Ramblewood Middle, and Sawgrass Springs Middle.
Finally, our high schools are Coral Glades High and Marjory Stoneman Douglas. Coral Springs has some great charter schools as well, with some of the top charter schools including Coral Springs Charter, Imagine School, and the Broward Renaissance Charter School of Coral Springs. Feel free to go online and look up the schools, as there are plenty more around.
The third question that I get is, ‘What is the weather like?’ Southeast Florida is characterized by two predominant seasons: summer and winter. That's right. No spring, and no autumn.
The summer season is characterized by warm humid conditions with frequent showers and thunderstorms. The winter season has cooler temps with lower humidity and less rain. Hurricane season is from June 1 to November 30.
Make Coral Springs Your Home
Coral Springs is known for its family atmosphere, thriving businesses, and advanced recreational facilities. As one of the fastest-growing cities and now considered fully built out, it’s hard to believe that this very same land was a green bean farm and cattle field just over 57 years ago. It’s definitely come far.
I hope this gave you some insight into the top three things you should know before moving to Coral Springs.
