Where will you be working?
You will want to focus on mostly Northern Districts. Like, in the suburbs(Plano, Frisco, ect).
Last time I looked, they averaged much better.

The best advice I could give you is there is a large list of great schools. However your child will not be in that elementary,middle or high school as long as you are going to live in that home.
You need to purchase your home based on statistics that your real estate advisor can provide you.
Which will include the homes school district information and a website to view all of the Texas School Ratings. You must protect your family by making a sound buying decision which includes the question CAN I SELL THIS HOME Quickly If needed, without financial lose

I am an associate broker/owner Here in the DFW area. go to and get my contact info
and I will talk to you about all your options.

Lots of good ones in the area. As others have mentioned HPISD, Coppell, Frisco, Carroll, Grapevine-Colleyville, Keller, Plano, NW ISD....

A lot depends on how much you want to spend for a house and where you will work. HPISD might take a million to get in....Frisco maybe $150,000. NW ISD, maybe $100,000....but driving from one place to another might take an hour or more.

You have any idea yet what you want to spend and where you will work?

In addition to the Great Schools website listed below, the Texas Education Agency provides a portal to look up accountability ratings for individual school districts and campuses:

Keep in mind that, within Dallas, you have multiple school districts. Not everything is within Dallas Independent School District. Richardson, ISD, for example, has schools within the city of Dallas.

If you find a particular school attendance zone you are interested in (remember: elementary, junior high, and high schools each have separate attendance zones) you need to make sure that the homes you are looking for are within the boundaries of the school attendance zone--and verify this with the individual school districts as sometimes this information is not as accurate as it should be in various databases. Most local school districts have tools on their website where you can enter an address and check the attendance zone for a particular school.

Each school district has it's strengths and weaknesses. As a former music instructor in public schools I can tell you it really comes down to the need of the child. I have a good knwoledge of the Dallas Schools. If I can help you with that please contact me.

My son has dyslexia. Would you recommend any particular ISD for his needs.

I like Tom's thought about where will you work.
Picking the wrong school district could mean a super long commute.

Generally I hear good things about Frisco, Coppell, Flower Mound, Southlake, Keller, but there are other good ones depending on where you might want to live. Of course price range is a consideration too. HPISD is considered great, but might cost you 1mil to get in.…
