Any thoughts? I live in Rowlett and we are zoned for Sachse but were considering Rowlett for our child's high school.

Remember that school starts at 7:30am, keep that in mind for the commute that early.

You do know that it is past time that the forms for "Choice of School" were due for high school? If you have not turned it in already for next year and your not in the RHS zone you probably will not get in. You can get put on a wait list and maybe get into RHS but your going to be behind those that turned in their forms on time. Most of Waterview is zoned for Sachse.

I don't know what the timeline is now for the new high school to be built that would serve that portion of Rowlett. Highly doubt it will be open in time for any student starting high school in the next few years.

I am in the same boat, my daughter went back and forth last year before she choose on going to Rowlett after all. She has friends at both but Rowlett had good programs and teachers that she knew. So yes, she has to be taken to and from school....at least until she gets her lic.
If you leave the house around 0640 and now that the traffic light is there everything should move smoothly.

As for the momof2dfw reported above choice of schools was over right before spring break. So most likely you will have to go where your zoned.

Rowlett is a great school, and so is Sachse.

You leave at 6:40 to get to RHS? My husband did a trial run for Sachse and it was 18 minutes at 7am. RHS is definitely closer but most of her friends are going to Sachse as well. I know a ton of people in the situation and I find it sad that the schools are having to divide.

We leave so early to beat the traffic crossing 66 due to the construction, and my daughter likes to get there early. Sachse is less than 10 mins from me. But, she wanted Rowlett HS instead. You will have construction towards Sachse soon enough
