I'm going to work @ Sam Houston, and for schooling there and need a place for my family...
the amenities needed,

1. Elementary school, for a 1st grader and 5th grader..Must have a full time nurse (1st grader, he's a type 1 diabetic)
2. Looking for a safe location, as in not ghetto..(I live in Cali) and I know what the ghetto's look like. I enlisted in the Army to get away from the ghetto life.
3. A house preferably (we have a english bulldog)

I will be getting basic housing allowance, and looking for somewhere pretty safe,and near the school/work.
Thanks all

Nice areas close to Fort Sam would probably be Alamo Heights and Terrell Hills.

All public schools here have a full-time nurse, so no need to worry. Look at neighborhoods North of 410 and 1604, Stone Oak area.

I live in Canyon Springs and I really do love the area. Yes you will have some traffic getting to work but the schools will definitely be close to home. My husband is retired AF and we both really do love the area we live.

It kinda depends on your budget and how far you are willing to drive to get to work/school.

Why don't you live on base? Everything would be right there.

brackenridge/mahnke park if alamo heights / terrel heights is out of your budget. both are great neighborhoods and voted the most diverse in SA.

pretty darn safe here also. rarely do i hear emergency sirens going off. ive seen a grand total of maybe 10 cop cars on my block, just patrolling. never had em park outside anyones place for an incident, though the dingbat next door to me had em visit him because his tags and inspection were expired (he parked on the street and someone slammed into his car, hence the police visit).

lots to do around here (the kiddie park is popular), lots of good places to eat (cheesy janes and the pig stand right off the bat). the only crappy part is that the roads can be a bit bumpy at times (see the hildebrand/281 exit going towards broadway).

all in all, best neighborhood ive lived in (so far) in SA.

avoid anything south/east/west. while not as ghetto as some of the stuff you've no undoubtedly seen in cali, those particular sides are bleh. if any, the south *can* be somewhat decent in small pockets, but hey, who wants to live in a nice area thats surrounded by filth? not me!
