Lovejoy's premium is for newer housing and bigger lots like Prosper. Schools in these towns are good but not good enough to sell houses on their own. This is my realtor's input. Any way both are too far away for my requirements.

I went to Colony to meet some one and it looked fine to me, may be it was a better part of it.

The far southwest corner of Frisco is zoned Lewisville ISD but has from its inception been zoned to Hebron HS. Same "we are too good for The Colony" mindset that you and others espouse because your children might have to go with someone of a less than noble background.

There are 5 high schools in the Lewisville ISD. Someone will be fifth place no doubt. With the well to do areas that feed into Hebron, and the two Flower Mound schools, it is no surprise that The Colony would come in last. But last to such excellent schools does not make it a horrible inner city schools and that is what you and those like you make it out to be. It is still a fine school and I would have no problem if life circumstances caused my kids to go to The Colony. I know many at my work that graduated from this school and they are all upstanding, productive members of society.

There will always be those that have to live in "the" district with "the" tony school. I don't want my kids going to a crime infested school with a high drop out rate and illiterate students. Your post and others make it seem that The Colony is like this. It isn't.

Raises hand.. yup, I'm guilty. I would never in a million years let my child go to TCHS and I'm sorry but that doesn't make me a snob.

I have to admit I didn't realize TCHS was part of LISD. I thought they were a different district...because you NEVER hear about them even in LISD. Crazy.

It actually does, but I don't blame you for thinking that way.

If I have a choice on what school my child goes to and I don't want my child to go to TCHS.. how does that make me a snob?

Attention developers of Castle Hills East: Stop your development plans now. No one will buy your homes because their kids might have to sit in a class room with the child of a mechanic or a plumber.

What is wrong with a mechanic or a plumber? I'm not worried about kids of mechanics or plumbers, I'm worried about kids who have parents that neglect them and don't push them to excel in school.
