Schools are always the priority for families moving into Houston with children. As I have seen with other families, I am quite sure you are also looking at the locations from the commuting aspect as far as work commute goes.
I am quite sure you have found good ratings on several schools through the Houston and surrounding areas, however, a lot depends on what is important within the areas as far as amenities go as well.
Have you looked further out into Katy or Sugar Land?
If I can assist in any way, pleae let me know as well.
