You probably are trying to locate schools that are well-rounded in their teaching programs which don't solely concentrate on tests.
There are many exemplary schools in the Houston area, however, since you have to be zoned to the school your child attends, it would be worth figuring out first what your budget is that will allow you to be within the school you like best, unless of course, you want to invest in a Private School.
Most of us realtors have worked with folks that place a great importance on education and want to make sure that the school performances are very highly rated. You may have a general idea of where you may want to live, so one of the best ways would be check with the school district and individual schools to see what programs they specifically have.
