We very recently moved from West Texas to the Hebron/Josey area, and we love it here. We are across Josey from CH, so I cannot comment on that except to say it is very pretty, very new-looking, with some fairly good restaurants. We've been very, very pleased with what LISD has had to offer. My kids go to Arbor Creek MS, and I'll have one at Hebron next year.

I think North Carrollton is more diverse than west Plano, but I could be wrong about that. Definitely you should check it out, and compare it to CH to see what you think. Good luck in your home search!

After thinking about this some more, I would also suggest that you stop by the elementary schools in the areas you're contemplating moving to. Either do a drop in, or if you want a tour, make an appt w/ the office staff. You should very quickly be able to get a *feel* for each school's atmosphere.

As a long-time teacher, I would suggest that you check the schools personally, and don't completely judge them by the good or bad experiences of others. Certainly a lot of negative feedback about a particular school would be a red flag, but read with discernment, then see for yourself.

The principal of Castle Hills Elementary is retiring after this year, which you might want to consider as well.

I loved Carrollton Schools, I would recommend any place you buy be a part of Creekview HS, that is the better school in the main part of Carrollton, I think elementary would be Kent (I work close to this school, and I would love it if my kids could go there as well) LOTS OF DIVERSITY!! From experience. Carrollton is a great place to live, low crime, diversity and reasonable cost of living. Will not get new construction in the CISD area, and may be a bit older if that is ok with your taste, prices for houses in Carrollton are very reasonable.

If you decide Lewisville, and dont want Independence, and your budget clearly allows it, look in the original phase of Castle hills, that will get you Castle Hills elementary, and Hebron HS. You do still have some new home options, if that is something you would like. I think LISD is a great district, and there is a lot of funding coming into the schools, especially the schools being funded additional dollars from Castle hills.(
Creekview HS is in Carrollton, but is it Lewisville ISD (like Castle Hills) or is it Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD? The district lines of Carrollton can put u in Lewisville ISD or Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD.
