Looking at possibly moving to SA.

I have a 6th grade boy who plays AAU basketball. I would like to live in a area that will have a good Jr. High and High School basketball team. I hear Wagner High is really good at basketball, but how's that area of town?
If it's not good, can someone reccomend a school/area that is? Even if it's a private school.

Thanks

Churchill and Reagan both have good boys' basketball programs and good neighborhoods.

How much were you looking to spend on a house? That will be an important factor in the neighborhood we recommend.

We would probably rent at 1st up to 1800 a month.
If we end up buying then we would be looking for min... 3bd 2ba 2 car min 1400 sq ft up to 250K. And we prefer mid-century modern homes or Craftmans style.

There are several threads in this forum on MCM homes. Since MCM homes date back to the middle of the century, my hunch is that you might not be able to find that style in the Churchill and Reagan attendance areas, which were developed beginning in the 70s and 90s respectively. We have many fine real estate professionals reading this forum who will probably be able to tell you whether my hunch is right or wrong.

Searching this forum for "MCM" yields 23 results, at least 4 of which spell that style out in the title.

I'm thinking that MCM homes are going to be most prevalent in the San Antonio ISD, just because that's the part of the city that was developed in the 50s and I'm not sure which schools in that district are best for basketball. Maybe Brackenridge?

I think there are quite a few MCM homes in the Churchill area. There are quite a few MCM homes inside 410 in the Northwood area which is in MacArthur district/Alamo Hts area. Both of which have good basketball programs. And around the 200-250+ range for the MacArthur area anyways

I guess I should have said a good school and basketball program comes 1st, then the style of homes. The MCM or Craftsman style would be nice, but its not necessary. Education and basketball come 1st.

Reagan and Clark both have great basketball programs. Both offer nice neighborhoods. I believe Clark was nationally ranked at one point this season for basketball, and they have a great coach that used to coach at the college ranks (Baylor). Back when the Cornerstone bball scandal happened, some former players ended up going to Clark and succeeded there and got college scholarships. Feeder schools are Rawlinson MS and Hobby MS which usually have pretty decent programs. Reagan will have some nicer homes, and its team is one of the best in the city.

I forgot to add that I would prefer (although not necessary) to be some what close to where I would be working. Which would be Kelly/Lackland .

IMO, I would try and stay within NISD boundaries instead of South San, Southside or Edgewood school districts. Someone on this forum might have a better feel for the areas such as Alamo Ranch and other areas around 1604/Potranco/Culebra/151 areas
