My husband has been relocated and we will be moving to Denton. Can anyone tell me which schools are the best? Also which side of town should we focus our search on? Where I live now I frequent the YMCA and would love to join a rec center, are there ones that are better then others? Please Help!!

Denton Ryan or Denton Guyer will be your best bets for high school, I'm unsure about lower schools. I know on the southern and southwestern side of town a lot of new residential developments are going up. I think they cover a lot of price ranges as well. If you want to find very charming older homes (some even Victorian era) then the neighborhood between downtown and UNT (and slightly north of campus) has some fantastic homes.

Honestly almost anywhere in Denton is a great place to live. There is one little pocket just south of 35 (towards Dallas) that isn't the best - but Denton is a cool little city.

there is lot of rental property in Denton (homes and apts) because of the high % of college students and lower level faculty so some areas can be kind of sketchy--
price would probably dictate reliable/safe neighborhoods more than anything because you just price yourself out of lot of problem areas when you move to higher priced rentals
for apts that could still be problem since people can split the rent for fairly nice 2 bed unit
but for houses if you are renting 2K or more you should be fairly safe anywhere

I don't think living around college kids is sketchy - as they are in college. BUT - it can get loud and rowdy. When I went to school there - since I actually wanted to SLEEP at night and have quiet to study - I rented a few miles from the school. There are some great older neighborhoods north of University that are great. Quiet -but not too far from the city.

Try by Evers Park. =)

Corinth is a family friendly area, with trees and hills and great subdivisions. Good home prices too.
