Where is the best place to live for great public schools when I split my work schedule between fort worth and Hurst?

Asked by New To Town, Plano, TX Sat Jan 22, 2011

Our children are 6 and 2 and we are comfortable in the 200-300k range.

The below website IS very helpful, Another helpful website is http://www.schoolsk-12.com/

The definition of "great school" widely differs per parent, so be careful about reading too many opionions on all of these public forums. You'll overwhelm yourself and confuse yourself with your priorities versus someone else's.

Find an agent with whom you feel comfortable and can trust. Work with someone who is interested in finding out what matters to YOU as a parent and who helps you find an area and school district that meets YOUR needs and those of your family, not just one that sounds "popular" for the time. Example: one parent may value only the TAKS test scores, another parent may be concerned with student to teacher ratio, the next parent cares about the strength and content of the actual curriculum that is taught, your neighbor may put emphasis on number of national merit scholarships, someone else cares about the percentage of attendance and the percentage of students who graduated and went immediately onward to college or trade school or military, or some parents value extra-curricular sports and towns that are publicized for that. See what I mean? So, what another parent feels is superior, you may not feel that same way.

If you're open to the idea, please feel free to contact me, I'd love to help find you and YOUR family what YOU are looking for. Sloan@BrantsRealtors.com or 817-223-5435.

Regardless of hiring me or anyone else, don't settle for what school sounds desirable if you don't know that it is what you and your family want! This can often backfire and then you're $200k into it and not really wanting to immediately move.

Kind Regards and Best Wishes to you and your family,

The great think about NE Tarrant County is there are many good schools and good places to live. We are blessed!

I noticed that you are moving over from Plano, I lived in Grapevine, then the Plano area, and now I am back in Colleyville, so I am familiar with the move you are talking about! Hope you love it on this side of town. If you can give more particulars about what you think makes a great school and what you look for in a home my team would be glad to assist you in any way we can.

Take care and happy moving!
Warmest Regards

Hi there!

Children are 6 and 2. So, First grade and day care right?

I am going to suggest the Birdville ISD in North Richland Hills for location. Now I must tell you the 820/I35 loops is under construction and will be for the next 2 years so knowing back roads to and from Fort Worth are important. North Richland Hills offers established neighborhoods.
I can help you find your home and provide information that will help you in making this decision.

Feel free to contact me at your convenience.

Best Regards,

Standard Pacific Homes has several communities in North Forth Worth with great schools. Of course, the district and location you choose will depend on your family's needs. I would recommend checking out the following three Standard Pacific neighborhoods for your price range.
Trinity at Heritage - Keller ISD
Saratoga - Northwest ISD
Creekwood - Eagle Mountain/Saginaw ISD

Try visiting this website http://www.greatschools.org It is a great resource for finding terrific schools. Fort Worth (depending on what part of Fort Worth) and Hurst really aren't that far apart, so if you would like to split the difference you would probably end up in the H-E-B school district. However, you have other options as well, such as Keller ISD, although further north, it is has great schools. Depending on the location of your new home it might work as well. The $200-$300k range opens up some possibilities for you. I'd be happy to send you free lists of homes that might work for you. If you'd like to also send me the work locations, I will take that into consideration when compiling the list. Thanks!! My email is truvaluerealty@gmail.com
