Hi-We are moving to Lubbock in the summer 2018 for my husband's job. What are the best public and private elementary/middle schools in the area. I've researched online, but find the best referrals come from people who actually live in the area.
What are the best areas to buy a home?


Thanks in Advanced!

It depends on what you're looking for. Any elementary and middle school on the southwest side of town will be good. The magnet programs (Roscoe Wilson and Ramirez for elementary, Hutchinson for middle, and Lubbock High for high school) are the best schools in town in my opinion. Lubbock High always produces the most National Merit scholars and best AP test results in West Texas. If sports are a higher priority, Coronado, Frenship, and Cooper have decent academics and good sports programs. I'm not sure I'd recommend Monterrey though.

As for homes, it depends on what age of house you want and where your work is. If you want older, established neighborhoods with big trees, Tech Terrace, Rush, and Melonie Park are your best bets, but basically anything west of University Avenue will be a safe area.

I strongly believe the “best” school is the one that’s the best fit for the individual child. With that being said, I can tell you that Honey, Smith, Miller and Whiteside are all good elementary schools in Lubbock ISD. However, Lubbock Cooper ISD is the highest-performing district overall, with Frenship ISD coming in second. We moved here last year and have 2 kids in a Cooper Elementary and we’ve been very pleased! There are 5 Cooper Elementary schools which feed into 2 (soon to be 3) middle schools. All are excellent. As far as private elementary schools go, I know people with kids at Trinity Christian, Southcrest and All Saints. Each one of them rave about their respective schools. Regarding public schools, just be aware you’ll pay significantly higher property taxes to live in Frenship or Cooper districts, so keep that in mind when house shopping. Best of luck in your move and welcome to Lubbock!
