Commute time from Trophy Club to McKinney with no traffic is roughly a 30-40 minute commute easy. So with traffic, you could easily gage about 1hr 25+min. There are several nice areas with good schools & a sense of town community that come to mind, but where we recommend would depend on your price point of your purchase. North Fort Worth (76244 zip code), Roanoke, Trophy Club, Southlake, Colleyville, Frisco, McKinney, Plano, & Allen are all great family oriented communities offering excellent schools & newer development.
If you wish to provide us with an email, I'll gladly send you some informational material to further assist you in familiarizing yourself with the DFW areas as well as your relocation!

The commute from McKinney to the Trophy Club area will be well over an hour due to the construction surrounding 114 going into that area. I would recommend a location closer to Trophy Club and one that does't require you to get stuck in the construction zone and road closures.
I live in Frisco and my husband commutes to Allaince Airport, just 5 minutes on the North Side of Trophy Club. His commute from Frisco is 45 minutes. He takes Hwy 380 to 35 to the split at 35 to Forth Worth. He says its an easy drive and highways are nice. Many employees live in Trophy Club and they love the family and community environment. I like Westlake and Highland Village as well as Flower Mound, they are experiencing some growth right now but had maintained that small town feel.
You have many options to you including Coppell, Colleyville, Keller, and Grapevine. These can be selected based on your price range and I can provide you with information on the school districts and their ratings. These Cities have ways you can skirt around all the construction.
I would love to help you with your transition to this area and I have experience in relocation. I can send you information on school districts, current ratings for each and data regarding the subdivisions, all by email.
Please feel free to text, call or email if you have any questions.

Most of the high school around here seem pretty big. I think the Mckinney schools are 5a, as is Byron Nelson HS in Trophy Club. I think a lot will have to do with the price range you want to be in. Westake for example might take 1mil, Trophy Club $200-$500,000, McKinney $100-1mil.
If your husband will work in Trophy Club, I would probably start there. If you don't want big schools, you might have to go to one of the smaller towns north of TC....like Justin, Ponder, Argyle, maybe Lantana. Coppell and Grapevine have small town feels to me. However school districts are large and High Schools are 5a. HV is in Lewisville ISD, so high schools again will be large.
As growth happens, the small cities may grow.
If you don't have a realtor yet, give me a call and we can walk you through some ideas.

Commute from Trophy Club to Mckinney could be a "bear" plus the expense of gasoline and tolls. There are other communities you might want to consider with less of drive time and going in opposite direction.

Depending where in McKinney and where in Trophy Club your husband is working, you are looking at about 1 hour commute. Corinth, Westlake, Highland Village will make more commute sense or you can also check Flower Mound, Southlake, and Coppell. It all depends on how much you are willing to pay for a home, too. If school is very important to you then I can email you some info and perhaps that will help you narrow down on the place to live since it can be overwhelming. Let me know if you have any questions, you can email or call me.

The drive is probably a hour to Trophy Club. Sorry! He would have tollway for much of the trip.
Unfortunately, 5A schools are the future for most districts in North Texas. However, I have a son who graduated from McKinney Boyd last year and a special needs son who is a sophomore there now. I can't say enough good things about the extremely talented kids that graduated with my son or the caring PALS, athletes, and friends that accept my younger son for who he is.
If you have to have a smaller district, live in McKinney and put your kids in the Prosper ISD. Prosper has focused on developing the best schools possible, but they are still small.
