Looking for house with exemplary schools(ES/MS/HS)

Asked by Thomas, 78681 Mon Oct 7, 2013

I am currently staying in the Round Rock area and love it. Just about starting to look for a bigger house. My main criteria is to have exemplary schools(Elementary/Middle/High School). The place where I am staying now scores on the 1st 2 schools but not the HS. The challenge is to find houses with the above 3 criteria in mind(preferably in the RR area). Which areas should I be looking at.


Help the community by answering this question:


What other limitations do you have? How big of a home, commute/location, affordability, etc.

Do your kids already attend certain schools that you'd like to stick with? Or, perhaps you just like the idea of property values remaining stabled based on the schools.

The best schools in RRISD are not in Round Rock. So this becomes a little tricky! They are actually in North Austin.

I know these school districts very well (Round Rock & Leander) and would love the opportunity to help. I see your post is from awhile back.... let me know if you still need assistance.

We specialize in high end home renovations and just put our latest property on the market here in Round Rock. It also happens to be located in Sendero Springs which has the top of the top when it comes to schools (Cactus Ranch (elem), Walsh (Jr High), and Round Rock HS). These score 10/10, 10/10, 9/10 respectively. It doesn't get any better than that.

I've had several people tell me that Cactus Ranch Elementary School is extremely good...

I work with many people that the only criteria they have in finding a home, is the schools. I have learned that this is a huge factor in regards to how quickly homes are moving in these areas. Please feel free to contact me, and I will lend you some of the things I have learned on the schools and the areas you will probably be most interested in.
All my Best, Deb Meyer

If you contact me, I can help you find the best schools in the area. My name is Dr. Allen Johnson and my number is 512-965-7700.

Renee is correct and because the ratings do change over time there is no guarantee that an exemplary school today will be one 2-5 years from now. That being said you have a lot of options to put your children in the best position possible in order to succeed.

If you would like to talk further about this or financing options. I am also a wholesale mortgage broker with rates and fees far lower that what 90% of banks can offer you. Plus I am also a Realtor who has lived in Round Rock and am familiar with the area and schools.

Hope this helps.

You have several choices between Round Rock West of I-35 with great schools or Round Rock East 78665. Have you consider Cedar Park??
I will gladly provide more details to you. Reply to me at: GabriellaRealtor@gmail.com

Are there any areas around Cedar park which would meet these criteria?
Flag Mon Oct 7, 2013
Thank you. A quick search on this site for 78665 reveals mostly Tera Vista community houses(which as far as I am aware is not Exemplary)?

Hi you are correct. In Round Rock you can get a home with an exemplary elementary and exemplary middle but both highschools are only Recognized. The only 2 school districts where you could get all 3 is Lake Travis and Eanes. Let me know if you'd like me to send you homes in Round Rock that have the Elementary and Middle exemplary or if you'd like homes in the other 2 school districts. Would love to help.

Thank you. I would like information on other 2 school districts considering that RR ISD does not have exemplary HS.

You would basically have to start with a Westwood high area...
