Last time I looked, they averaged much better.

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?

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.
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.
