We don't have kids, so I can't comment on the schools.

The neighborhood is nice, with well kept homes and quiet neighbors. I would say it is about 20% younger families and mostly retired people.

There is a neighborhood email list about crime in the whole west wide of town. Lately, here have been some break ins during the workday and a couple of muggings at grocery stores near Memorial and Dairy Ashford and Briar Forest and Dairy Ashford. I suspect this is typical for most areas in Houston. We do not feel unsafe, but it is different than when we lived in the suburbs in the Northeast.

we're neighbors.
I get the same ashford area emails, keep in mind they cover a LOT of houses and if you'll notice, most of them B&E's are south of Briar Forest.
