    Well, now let me think of the next in line - Parkview Elem School. It is under Keller ISD. Maybe this neighborhood is better. I noticed TheCommuter mentioned it in her post.

    Thanks guys for the heads up!
    Even though the Keller ISD has a great reputation around this neck of the woods, you'll pay dearly in property taxes if you purchase a home that is located in this particular school district. I was going to buy a 1,600 square foot single family house in North Fort Worth (Fossil Creek & Summerglen part of town) about 2 years ago for the bargain price of $102,500. The projected $3,850 yearly property tax bill made me change my mind. Homes that are located in the Keller ISD have one of the highest property tax rates. If you go for a larger house located in Keller ISD, you'll likely be paying close to $5,000 yearly in property tax.

    I live in a newer 1,800 square foot house located in the Crowley ISD, and my property tax bill was $2,690 this year.

    I and hubby are moving to DFW in '08 and I am so confused as to where to live. I want to be NEAR but not in things and I want good schools but I hate snobbery and entitled brats who think that the world owes them designer labels. Our house budget is 150k MAX and we would like a commute of 30 mins at the most. I will be an RN by then and he will be an LPN for a while longer. (wringing my hands) What to do what to do ?

    I sent you a very detailed private message, Pageantnurse. If you have any further questions, need clarifying, or want more suggestions, you know where to find me, LOL.
