It’s a pleasant albeit safe community that prides itself in diversity and quality of life-especially for families. The schools around the area reflect the communities diverse population and aspirations. There are private and public schools, and some offer a religious component for those looking for a more spiritual education. In addition to that, police officers and other civil servants a like serve with dignity, kindness and respect. Other civil servants like those working for UPS are very dedicated to giving you the best service they can. Lastly, there’s a public park, Greynolds, that’s perfect for a weekend picnic/ barbecue with family and friends! It really is an amazing community. I encourage you to come and experience it!

Miami Gardens is a good place to live. Some of the best elementary schools in the district with Scott Lake Elementary and Center for Modern Language Center (where both of myself and my brother attended). The magnet programs offered at this school propelled our education into other magnet schools in the district making us competitive high school scholar athletes. Our neighbors are working class people or retirees that support and keep an eye out for the children in the neighborhood. We have access to parks nearby that allow for team sports, playgrounds or encourage daily exercise and fresh air.
While currently being a resident living in Miami Gardens, FL. I enjoy living in this area due to the convenience of stores near me. Although, I dislike how safety isn't the best for many of my peers, both children and adults. I believe to make a positive change in my area, it would be effective to come as one organization to promote better ways to keep our community clean, healthy, peaceful, and safe. As a result, many people can be motivated to do better for themselves, the community, and the economy as a whole.
