Perhaps there's an apartment to be had (not many in Midlothian) and its sure worth looking into.

Cedar Hill is a decent commute, but schools not so good. SW Arlington is a gem of an area in the Martin attendance zone (I have rentals there) but a horrible commute for downtown Dallas. Mansfield, Wax and Red Oak ditto on bad commute.

Lake Highlands is another option to be considered, but have to be very careful about location. Apartments near Skillman near LBJ/635 are in high crime area.



I live in the very tip of Southern Waxahachie, and the downtown commute is about 35 minutes from my house at 6am. And all the other options I gave are closer than that, so I'm not sure what everyone would consider a horrible commute but that's pretty decent to me.

The apartments themselves are the high-crime areas (and they're well-maintained, beautifully landscaped, and not very scary). The apartments are actually relatively high-crime islands in low-crime areas.

There is no Lee park in 75038. If you mean Thomas Jefferson park then that is the area. There is a big area covered by CFISD, not teeny tiny.
