All of the schools in FISD are great schools, I think you should focus on a neighborhood you would like to visit depending on your price range and then we can sit down and talk about what are your wants and needs in the home you want to purchase and I can take you to the Elementary schools and Frisco, so that you can figure out what would better benefit your child.

Please call me or email me at 214-202-8415 or Mario_r28@yahoo.com.

Welcome to Texas....
Most consider Frisco ISD schools excellent.
My advice is not to focus on one school.....and here's the reason.
There may be different price ranges of homes you want to consider.
So if I tell you X school is the best, but in that area all homes are $1mil plus and you want to spend $200K, then that doesn't really help you.
The other consideration is that Frisco is growing really fast and schools zoning can and does change. So you may buy a house in X school zone, only to have the zoning change the next year due to growth or population changes only to have your student change schools the next year. One of my clients had their child in 3 different elementary schools, but in the same house.
While that is challenging ....the kids work through it and with most of the schools being excellent, it's not like you trade one great school for a terrible one.
I often advise parents that one word does not make a school. I just saw one client change their child from one school to another with both being thought of as excellent. A change in teachers and administrators and attitude made all the difference with this child. Great turn around story. I'm not convinced one school was better than another, it was just the environment for that child.
So a school one parent may think of as excellent for their child could be a nightmare for yours or the other way around. Each child has different needs.
My advice is focus on the house...find a good one...and then interview the school to see if you think your child will do well there. Go talk to the admins....the teachers....some parents.

First of all let me welcome you to Texas!

Frisco is wonderful place to live with many exemplary schools, and I know for us parents, school is very important. However, no realtors can give you an opinion about the best or next to best school since everybody has a different standard. I went through a similar situation trying to find a school for my chilld and I'd be glad to share my info with you, you can call or text me.

Take care,
