I would be a little wary about moving to Frisco schools. The town is constantly rezoning schools due to their population explosion. It's of course a natural progression, but this is one of the main reasons why we shied away. There have been more than several instances of children living in the same house are being zoned for different schools. Plano is no longer building out so the school zoning is relatively stable (aside from the rezoning that took place a few years back). Something to think about.

Also think about all of your kids' classmates who life in Frisco who will be joining the Frisco athletic teams and town activities while your kids will be only zoned for Plano activities. That separation might not be so fun for your kids.

Good luck!

Don't believe in whatever Great school puts out there. Frisco is a district under construction hence lots of people and companies have interest in promoting reputation of their schools, including builders, realtors, brokers etc. It is a good dostrict and getting better but it would take them another decade to settle and establish at the level of top districts.

Recent National Merit Semifinalist list looks impressive for Frisco. 14 NMSF from Liberty VS 20 from Plano Senior. Great progress from Frisco I would say! Plano West always have 50+ people as NMSF so can't compare at all.

What do you think of the fact that Liberty had 14 NMSF this year compared to 20 in Plano Senior High? I think Liberty High is pretty good though not comparable with Plano West even Plano East.
Looking for your honest opinion/viewpoint.Thanks

Liberty is the only one worth mentioning, they have many high schools that don't get much mention and more Keep popping up. You can be zoned and rezonned multiple times during 12 years of school. They aren't doing nearly as well as schools with less privileged demographics let alone similar areas. Frisco High is there since 1902 and still a barely average school.

Let's look at Liberty when they are done with all the rezoning! As it is, a lot of the Asian kids in the newer homes (Richwoods, Lawler Park) may end up in Independence High (with further rezonings to Lebanon Trail and 3 other new high schools coming up!!!)

I agree that Frisco really needs to get its act together - the whole millions of small schools idea is going ot be a huge headache in the future.

You got your numbers wrong, it is 16 for Liberty and 13 for Senior high. This year Liberty did better than Plano senior and Plano East. Considering that Liberty is smaller, that was a nice number and this is just the beginning , especially with the new wave of kids just entering High school.
