Hello everyone,


Hearing so much about Little Elm on the move. I wanted to know if anyone can tell me anything about diversity here . I am African American and just wanted to know honestly ( I am in no shape or form prejudice) if there is a lot of diversity in Denton County in this area.

Thanks in advance!

Little Elm has 2 sides to it: the older, original part and the newer master-planned communities clustered just west of FM 423. The new communities are fairly well mixed, both my son and I live there. The area is served by 2 school districts, Little Elm ISD and Frisco ISD. Frisco ISD is way ahead of Little Elm ISD. You want to carefully pick the Frisco ISD part if you have kids.

My grandkids go to Robertson Elem (Frisco) and I recently went to the 3rd grade award ceremony. Out of curiosity, I counted the kids as they came in. Out of about 160 kids (6 classes of 25-30 each) I saw about 50 minorities: African Americans, Asian Americans, Latino Americans, what my Asian American grandkids call "brown skins." My son, who is Caucasian with a Filipina wife, has AA families on both sides of his house and several more down the street. I don't know the kids where I live but I see a group of 3-4 playing all the time and one is AA.

The older section seems to be lower income and I know nothing about that part of town, it's about 5 miles from where I live.

Honestly, it doesn't seem to be a problem where we live. I see a healthy mix of people when I go shopping or out to eat.

I also don't know anything about Denton Co. as a whole. My daughter-in-law has plenty of Filipina friends who live in Savannah and other areas around and they seem to like it.

The DFW area, particularly the northern suburbs, are the third most diverse area other than San Fran or NYC. Even the middle class towns like Garland or Mesquite or Carrollton have lots of mixed married couples.
