For the op, be careful around the Tuscan Lakes area. A lot of those houses are zoned to Dickinson Isd, not clear creek. On the ccisd website there is a school locator where you can type in the address you are looking for and it will tell you what schools are zoned for that address.

Clear Lake is way better than Clear Creek. you can live in Seabrook which is near the bay and zoned to Clear Lake high, but it's not near Clear Lake High.

I agree, Clear Lake HS > Clear Creek HS.

Brookwood subdivision is a good one in your price range. It is near Clear Lake HS. It has one of the best elementary schools (Brookwood ES) in the Clear Creek ISD. I also think a lot of the homes were built by David Weekley, which is a well respected builder.

We are looking at houses zoned to Brookwood Elem/Space Center Int/Clear Lake HS, and I have some questions for Clear Lake experts.

Why does Clear Lake HS have such a good word-of-mouth reputation? The 2008 TEA Accountability ratings say that it is "Academically Acceptable," which doesn't seem so impressive.

Also, do the parents whose children attend Space Center Intermediate have any concerns that the school is in such an industrial/retail type area? It certainly isn't very attractive. I don't understand why they don't plant some trees in the barren areas surrounding the school.

Word of mouth are from rankings like these:

http://blogs.chron.com/schoolzone/20...h_schools.html

(#13) Not sure what they are based off of. Maybe test scores.

And you're right about that middle school being in the middle of the barren field. The industry you see is the space center, hence the name. It's not exactly hard industry like you see in LaPorte for instance. And I always thought the retail was quite a distance down Saturn from the school, but maybe I'm mistaken. If anything, it's a fairly quiet street that is easy to blast down.

TEA rated Clear Springs HS higher than Clear Lake HS. Clear Springs HS is "Recognized" and Clear Lake HS is "Academically Acceptable." But you never hear anyone praising Clear Springs HS. Maybe because it is so new?

I have been looking and finding some really nice large houses that are pretty new and zoned to Clear Springs. They are probably cheaper because they are in League City versus Clear Lake. I am not sure about the elementary schools and middle schools though.

What is the easiest way to find info about school ratings?


Topaz...
I really like Brittany Lakes. I think it is zoned part to Clear Creek and part to Clear Springs. It is not to far from 45 either.

Clear Lake HS is very well known in the area. Many good programs.
