Centennial from group A and Skaggs from group B. Group B has more Indians.

I hear very good things about Centennial and Hightower and have friends with kids at both schools. They are definitely better than Huffman.

You mentioned apartments, would you be looking to buy in the future? If so, consider what housing costs are in the area of the schools you are looking at as Centennial has much higher home values on average than Hightower.

I don't know anyone at the schools in your other grouping so no commentary there.

I believe Skaggs borders the neighborhood that is near it and has no apartments feeding to it.

I know when I was working at Skaggs it was no apartment kids. Not sure if the lines have been redrawn.

I'm not sure where to start with this, but...

Both Hightower and Centennial are good schools with a slew of Indian kids and apartments available in their attendance zones. I'd start with those two, with greater availability in Hightower.

I'd avoid Huffman, and I have no idea what school you mean by "olfen".

Skaggs and Andrews are excellent schools, but apartment availability is slim to none. Riddle and Borchardt are in a different school district -not Plano.
