Hi. Looking to buy a house in Katy as schools system is great and houses are within our budget (~$400k). Are there particular standout neighborhoods/HOAs good for young families? Any particular elementary schools in Katy that are especially well regarded?

Thanks!

I believe WoodCreek Elementary is one of the highest rated in Katy.

Lots of houses for sale in the Green Trails area in that price range, and most are zoned to Pattison elementary, which is an excellent elementary school.

Another vote for Green Trails. Great schools all the way through high school, and a relatively convenient location.

The area zoned for Woodcreek Elementary is nice, but it’s a heck of a long commute to the Energy Corridor or any areas to the east. Also, the zoned high school isn’t one of the better-regarded ones in Katy, which keeps prices and appreciation lower.

Was there any flooding in Green Trails? I have friends in Kelliwood that got flooded from the reservoir release, but don't know if Green Trails was affected. Those are two great neighborhoods, and I like them much more than all the newer ones to the west.

Thanks for the replies. How bad is overcrowding at the public elementary schools?

There was very limited flooding in a single part of green trails from my understanding. I live in Kelliwood Estates and the back end of our area flooded (we were spared by about 8" of elevation...), but the Kelliwood subdivisions further south near Westheimer Parkway suffered far worse.

Most of Green Trails elevation I believe sits above the reservoir spillway.

Street flooding (which is by design), but no home flooding. Source: friends living in Green Trails.
