I think the middle school plan for most Roberts parents is apply for Lanier and Pin Oak, if neither of those work use your fallback which could be:

Go to Pershing
Go private
Move to Montrose
Buy a condo in Montrose and move your homestead exemption there and double home it for 3 years, hopefully make a bundle tax-free when you sell.

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. The fallback sounds like quite a bit of work.

On a related note, since we are thinking 20 years or so into the future, how often do the zoning maps change? Have they changed in the past 20 years?

Thanks again!

The main drivers of zone map changes are new schools opening or old schools closing. There have been plenty of changes over the last 20 years, but I doubt the areas you are looking at will change much because of the politics involved.

In 20 years, the middle and high schools could have completely changed, for the good or the bad. And your situation and job could change.

When we moved into West U., we didn't have kids. Pershing was definitely not acceptable at that point. But Middle School was a long way away. We decided we would address it when we got there, move, go private or re-evaluate Pershing. Pershing did improve. Pin Oak opened. But jobs changed and we moved before we ever got to Middle School. A lot can change in 10 years, let alone 20.

its always been like that in HISD pretty much. Lamar and Bellaire pattern has been the most desired for everyone in the district. I hate it personally as alot of that has been due at the expense of other areas due to kids running over there but you can't count on that in HISD like rain in Houston.

Well 40 years ago, Sharpstown, Westbury and Lee were all more desirable than Lamar. But they all went downhill. Bellaire has always been near the top so far as I know.

Some of the kids at Pershing act like idiots and the adults there allow anything except fighting, cheating, kids being late for classes and kids being out of uniform.

Arent those 90% of school issues?

Also if a parent has a uniform exemption (Texas law requires school districts to grant exemptions to school uniforms if the parents have bona fide religious or philosophical beliefs against them) the kid doesn't have to wear them.

https://web.archive.org/web/20080602.../uniforms.html

Quote:
(c) A parent or guardian of a student assigned to attend a school at which students are required to wear school uniforms may choose for the student to be exempted from the requirement or to transfer to a school at which students are not required to wear uniforms and at which space is available if the parent or guardian provides a written statement that, as determined by the board of trustees, states a bona fide religious or philosophical objection to the requirement.

My idea is that perhaps someone should notify the FBI, since you are threatening someone on a public forum.

I have noticed that you have been struggling with issues at school for a while now. Please talk to your parents about this. And stop posting about it on the internet. I am pretty sure they can help you, and the first thing they would say is also, "Stop posting about it on the internet."
