As a former math/history teacher, I am familiar with the Texas public school system. Right now my wife and I send our children to the Austin Waldorf School (http://www.austinwaldorf.org/
). It resonates with our family due to its emphasis on teaching as a holistic endeavor and strongly encourages the arts. You can read more on Waldorf education at http://www.whywaldorfworks.org/02_W_Education/index.asp.
We live in Southwest Austin near AWS and are familiar with the area, if that is where you choose to live. Renting is a very viable option right now, and there are many homes that deliver a great value for your leasing dollar, including 8805 Dorella Lane in 78736 (not in the MLS) which is leasing for $1,800/mo and includes:
*4 Bedroom / 2 Full Bath
*1.25 fenced acres on corner lot
*Huge park-like backyard with woods
*Stained concrete floors
*Covered back porch spans entire length of house
*Open mother-in-law floor plan with bar wrapping kitchen
*Playscape / sandbox / zipline
*Fire pit / horseshoe pit / washer pit
*Automatic garage door opener
I also suggest you look at some local Buy vs. Rent articles here: http://a4c-austin.blogspot.com/
Good luck, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Peace in your home,
