My family and I have decided to relocate from Wisconsin and have found a home in Horn Lake, MS that we love. The only problem is that I heard in a previous post that Horn Lake is a place we should avoid in desoto county. I have two children and one will be entering high school and the other elementery school and I would like to know if the schools are as bad as I was told, if the neighborhoods are safe and family friendly, and is it an easy commute to Memphis for work purposes? My family is moving from Wisconsin and we want to make this our last move so it is important that we do as much research prior, please give me your honest oppinions. Thank you for your time!

Schooldigger.com ranks every school in the state based on test scores. Out of 250 high schools in the state, in DeSoto County Lewisburg ranks number 2 in the state, DeSoto Central 8, Center Hill 11, Hernando 22, Olive Branch 31, Horn Lake 62, Southaven 98, and Lake Cormorant unrated for some reason but probably should be around 100. The Horn Lake area south of Church Rd is a beautiful area of rolling hills and acreage. The schools are above average for the state as a whole but below average in DeSoto County.

There are a lot of places in Southaven and Olive Branch that don't flood.

Out of curiosity, I found my house's elevation which is 357.6 feet above sea level.

I compared that to the Tunica area, which is 184.6 feet above sea level.

Brickpatio has given you all the information you need. Lewisburg all the way. Historically Horn Lake has a lot of housing projects and still does. It's not terrible, but just not the best place to be in DeSoto County. You are probably seeing some cheap house prices in Horn Lake because the house prices there never go up.

Take a look at the Bridgetown community. It's in the Lewisburg district, and if the district lines change and you get zoned out you will likely get thrown into DeSoto Central or Hernando, neither of which is too bad.
