This is very late, I realize, but I wanted to clarify something.

THE TWO HIGH SCHOOL DEBATE HAPPENED WAY BEFORE CARROLL BEGAN TO DOMINATE 5A FOOTBALL.

The shuttle between the two campuses is not bad! It works great! (I am a Carroll graduate.)

Carroll grads don't have a sense of entitlement when it comes to getting Ivy League schools. The ones who get in EARNED it.

We have friends who live in Colleyille and their kids went to Grapevine HS. They love it. We live in Southlake and enjoy it. The communities are pretty similar. I personally think Southlake is more aesthetically pleasing - more planned. Not to knock Colleyville, but Hwy 26 is a hodge-podge. Whereas Southlake Blvd seems much nicer. And Colleyville is trying to mimick Southlake's Town Square but it really isn't working. Both are nice communities. Uptight vs laid back? I haven't seen it...

Colleyville has more long time residents and older neigborhoods. Southlake is newer, a little more afluent on average. GCISD is good but they have some lower income demographics that bring the scores down. Southlake has very few 2nd language students, few if any poor students, this is the main reason they score so well in the school ratings.

"There are townhomes at the Colleyville Town Square that are not selling and the builders are renting them."

This place makes me cringe when I drive around the development. Talk about a white elephant. I've seen scores of businesses come and go. It's like a deserted ghost town.
