Relo family here. We recently moved from Dallas, where our children were in private school. The academics and sports were top notch and there were many Asian/Black/Latino families as well. I would say 40% white, 20% black, 20 % Latino, and 20% everyone else. Searching for this in Houston has proven difficult. We like Corpus Christi but don't know anyone whose been. All our friends kids go to SJS or ROBS or AOS, which are all lily white and uber expensive. Anyone got the scoop on CCCS or any other suggestions?

The only Corpus Christi school I am aware of is in the Willow Meadows area, and I'll admit to not knowing much about it. I do it is a smaller school and I think it ends in 8th grade, but beyond that I'm not too familiar with their programing.



Based upon your post and the options you've listed, it sounds like you are searching for an elementary or middle school. I definitely recommend checking out Niche. You can search by factors such as "Most Diverse," Size and by school type.



If you have not yet visited Houstonprivateschools.org, I would definitely recommend doing so. Most Houston schools belong to that organization. They have a website that also lets you consider Student Body, Type, Grades and Location.


The other recommendation I might have -you mention having checked with friends on where their children attend -how about neighbors? Where do they send their children? Our area has a lot of those school yard signs that give a sense of where students attend.



If you're just relocating, I imagine it may be tough to find a school that will be the best fit, but it's not impossible. There are schools that make exceptions for families relocating or that may have rolling admissions. If you're interested in Corpus Christi I definitely recommend checking it out -talk to the Admissions Director and ask where most students are coming from. Also, if it's not a fit for your family, ask the Admissions Director for suggestions -they usually know other Houston schools fairly well. They'll at least know which programs lead into others.



I wish you best of luck in your search and hope you'll keep us updated in case others are looking for similar schools.

You might consider AWTY or the British International school. Strake Jesuit and St. Agnes are fairly diverse.

Funny how another poster got his thread locked because he didn't want a neighborhood that was too Asian, but its perfectly fine to look for a school that isn't too white. I'm surprised the OP isn't gleefully sending their children to HISD schools. Very easy to avoid evil whitey there.

Yes you sure don't want to go to a school with lots of "lily white" kids now right - that would be disgusting. And you sure don't want to get on someone for saying that right? Because it's too well known that too many "white" people can ruin things, like a church, an art class, an industrial economy or a civilization.

What kind of private school was this and what part of Dallas? I'm very curious because truth me told, down here, minorities such as black and Hispanic don't go to "private" schools unless it's a free magnet.



That's just the truth. White, and Asians both south and east (Paki, Indian, etc.) in this city with the medical field and energy tend to have the $$$$$ to send their children to a pricy private school.



The diverse exceptions are dad is white and has the $$$$$ and mom is the minority but I don't know what people classify their child as. I know people who have mixed children and go based on what their child looks like and will be percieved as (a few) or whatever dad is (which is usually white) regardless of what minority they're mixed based of stigma and last name (my friends with very Hispanic looking children with a non-Hispanic last name like Anderson are considered white children and that's the box that's checked).



Here those numbers are more 2% not 20% of any minority especially black and Hispanic.

Check out the Grace School near the beltway and westheimer, as well as the Royal Oaks neighborhood. Great diverse families, including a few pro athletes.

You didn't say what ages your kids were. Pius X is a high school with a good athletics program and more diversity.


All sarcasm aside, I am curious as to why you wouldn't consider some of HISDs magnet programs if diversity and sports are your main focus.

lol, Good luck Houston is pretty segregated.
There are schools like you describe in some of the suburbs; Spring, Cypress, Pearland, Woodlands and Humble are areas I'm most familiar with because we looked for homes/ school in all.
