I'd be happy to fill you in on the best schools in fairly close proximity to the airport. As a former teacher I make it a point to keep up with what is happening with schools in the Austin area. We are fortunate in that we have many public schools that are excellent! I have also help several extended families find a suitable floorplan for the multi-generations. There are some wonderful older pocket neighborhoods that will fit the bill for what you are looking for.
You've will have many choices as to whom you select to be your Realtor. I'd be happy to have a phone conversation to see if we'd be a good fit.

Pricing is going to be your driving factor for location. But, as some have indicated, do not share that information here. Since you have an elementary age child, I would not necessarily just focus on the school district as that is too broad of an area for your next 5 to 6 years of needs. Focus on the quality of the elementary school initially. Because of some pretty nice improvements in the road infrastructure on the outer edges of Austin (the interior still sucks to some extent), you do have a fair number of options.
Most in our position as brokers/agents, will be better able to help you once you have a good handle on your budget. And no, a good broker/agent doesn't just want to know this to sell you at the top end of your range, they need it to know which areas of town are going to be your best options.
While you've given some specifics on what you like, it is not enough to identify a particular home, let alone a particular neighborhood. But again, I would not share too much information in this forum. Select a broker/agent to work with, and begin the process that way, in private.
Call me if I can help you in your search process.
My advice is to ask friends and co-workers for the name of real estate agents they recommend, then hire someone with whom you feel comfortable. Have these sort of discussions in a private setting and let them help you find just what you want.
Good luck. Depending on your price range, there may be many great homes to consider.
Next, I would suggest find a full time Realtor, someone who will adopt your dream and walk with you down this exciting road. Understand that there are buyers' agents and sellers' agents and hiring a full time, dedicated buyers' agent will benefit you greatly - and the good news is, the seller will pay your agent's fee.
Get on line - see if you can find some examples of floorplans, style and location that you like and then do some dashboard time driving the neighborhood.
I wish you well on this most excellent journey, buying a home should be fun!
Enjoy the day.

You will most likely have a lot of options. If you like I can send you an Austin Relocation Guide. It has a lot of information about what makes Austin such a great place to call home. I can run some searches for you but would need to know some more details like price range. I already have a good idea of your lifestyle from your description. If you would like to talk I can set up a personal search for you that will send you homes that meet your unique criteria. We can also help you with financing options if you have a need or just questions.
Please call or email me when you have a few moments so we can talk about your situation.
Congratulations on your move to Austin. I am sure you will love it here. It's a great place to call home.
