Schools like Frostwood and Briargrove are preferred because they only accept zoned applicants.

Hunters creek is only slightly better than Memorial Drive. Good luck
Why are the Hispanic students an issue with these parents? Are there differences in academic performance?

In the SBISD parts of the Memorial Villages I found a part of Bunker Hill Village goes to Memorial MS but all the rest is to SB Middle. Memorial HS has all of the SBISD parts of the Memorial Villages.

BTW here are elementary boundary maps

Memorial Villages SBISD elementary schools
Note that there are parts of Hunters Creek Village (Windermere and Arrowwood) and Hunters Creek Village south of the bayou zoned to HISD!! The zoned schools are completely different as they are administered by a separate school district.

HISD school maps:
For Wisdom HS zoning students may transfer to Lamar HS or Westside HS. Revere zoned students they may transfer to West Briar MS. Emerson and Briargrove students may transfer to Mark White ES. https://www.houstonisd.org/_findAschool

Prejudice/racism

The children also come from lower socioeconomic neighborhoods and don’t perform as well. A saturation of Asians, African Americans, or Hispanics at any public school is considered a “problem”

Which is unfortunate on many levels...

(HISD board member Donald McAdams stated in the 1990s in a book that many white parents felt uncomfortable if there are too many black or Hispanic students, especially low income ones, but that Asians werent treated the same way as black and hispanic students) https://books.google.com/books?id=4eY4cg07-CAC&pg=PA59

Memorial Villages parents need to have a mentality that these are their neighborhood schools and that those schools reflect on them and their community.
