Hello everyone,
I am new to this forum n need valuable suggestions.
I am moving to dallas next month means in November 2013 wid my husband and 4yrs old kid.
I am going to join SMU for my Master degree in spring session.I want to know about the places which will be suitable for rent an apartment price range is $900- $1200 for 2 bedrooms in good n safe locality near to my college. I do not know about crime in dallas area.i looked online and found park cities n preston hollow are good for family and are near to SMU also.but do not have any idea about preschool/Montessori in these areas.currently we r in tucson arizona and my kid goes to preschool.please suggest me some good Montessori so that i can talk to them and reserve seat for my kid.I do not know how all things work there as here it is not difficult to find space in classrooms.
I also searched apartments but very much confused which area will be suitable for me n my family.security is major concern as i read in the forum here that PH is very secure.how abt park cities?i read some google reviews for village that was scary.is it so?
Waiting for advice n hoping for the best.
Thanks..

The Park Cities and PH are the most expensive areas in the region. Certainly safe but not sure you can find anything in your orice range.

The Village is not bad at all. The older complexes there will likely be in your price range.

For Montessoris near SMU - Lakewood Montessori, St Christopher's, White Rock, Lindsley Community School, East Dallas Community School. The last two are charter school - free. And Dealey - public magnet school also free.

It's fine if you're in your 20s or 30s, but my brother lives there and he says it can get rowdy on weekends. Not dangerous, but loud.

2 full bedrooms will be hard to find, but here are some close safe options

This one is really close to the new Lake Highlands Town Center, and not too far from SMU. I'm sure there's a good pre school nearby.

This one is a little closer to SMU, but it's a little high.
