I am dual military and have to move to either Wilshire, Royal Ridge, Windcrest or East Terrell school district becasue of my kids (3rd grade and PreK) . I currently drive 30 min to work and don't want to do it again but also want my kids going to a good sch ool. I am looking for 3-4 bedroom 1,200 rent no less than 2,000sq ft . I will be working at Ft. Sam any suggestions.

Thank you

You named subdivsions, not school districts. The neighborhoods you named are in the Northeast and Alamo Heights area.

Are those neighborhoods you're interested in? If they are you shouldn't have a problem finding a home in your price range in Windcrest or Royal Ridge. I don't know where Wilshire is (I thought that was a homebuilder?). Terrell Hills is a bit pricey you probably won't be able to find anything in your price range there.

The OP is basically naming elementary schools. Wilshire and East Terrell are great for special needs children, but I don't know how bad the schools have gotten. I don't know anything about Royal Ridge. I would actually recommend moving a little north so you're children can go to Northwoods Elementary and then Garner and MacArthur if you're staying awhile. All of those elementary schools you named feed into Krueger and Ed White Middle School which aren't all that great and those middle schools feed into Roosevelt which is one of the two bad high schools in NEISD. If you can afford it, Alamo Heights ISD is also near Fort Sam. There are some areas outside of Alamo Heights and Terrell Hills that are served by AISD and the houses are very affordable. You would have the find out the boundary between AISD and NEISD.

Wilshire Elementary is rated "exemplary" by the TEA which is the highest rating a school can get. I think some of the students at Wilshire go to Garner, so I would make sure you live in an area served by Garner. The other school that serves Wilshire students, Krueger, is only academically acceptable which is the second lowest rating. East Terrell Hills is also rated "academically acceptable." The NEISD website rlists Royal Ridge as "recognized" while the Royal Ridge site says it's "exemplary." Either way, both are good; but I don't know anything else about the school. The school feeds into White MS and Roosevelt MS which I don't recommend.
