Am trying to get to an area of between Austin and San Antonio or Hill Country with the least amount of drug problem. Teens in our area say it is everywhere they go here.

Can you recommend a particular school? Thnx

Drugs are pretty much available in every area and in some cases having more dispensable income equates to more drug abuse or more expensive drug use. You best bet is good parenting, paying lots of attention to your children, having lots of open communication, and their selection of friends. It is impossible to pick their friends for them and in the end teens will do as they wish no matter what.

Hate to say it, but I think drugs are everywhere. You just have to teach your kids that drugs are bad and as a parent I suggest watching who they hang out with. and do LOTS of praying.

Good luck in your search. If you find a drug free school please post up.

I am pretty much in aggreance here.. instead of asking what or where a drug free school is.. You would have to deal with your kids not to get into all of that stuff. Thats like asking where a sex free part of town is.. its not happening. Drugs are everywhere.. Its sad to say but the truth. We now have to deal with the kids and hope and pray they do not get into them.

Just talk to them and try to det a good influence. People say it doesn't work but trust me
I went to memeorial which has a big drug problem and I came out free of drugs. Some times kids will do drugs to be cool and fit in and I'm not going to lie I did do all that stuff but My mother talked to me and I saw how it broke her heart that I was doing all this stupid stuff and while it was cool and it felt good I couldn't stand how she felt so I quit and you know what it turns out I didn't need that stuff to be cool. the point is that taking to your kids helps and I''m proof so try it cause no matter what you can't escape drugs as posted earlier it's like sex and you know what that's a big past time for teens here to so talk about that too.

I believe a popular approach at keeping kids drug free around here is to schedule their lives so full of activities that they won't have time to do drugs. It's easy to identify the practitioners of this philosophy. They're the ones driving SUVs and minivans that have back windows plastered with stickers trumpeting their kids' extracurricular activities.

I'm not entirely sold on this approach, as I like to leave time in the day for my kids to do their homework.

I was SHOCKED to hear recently that San Marcos does NOT seem to be the place that would be what you are looking for. Seems from a recent report in the paper that they have a bigger than expected number of Meth lab type of issues.

How sad...such a beautiful area.

The only drugs I remember in high school were marijuana and prescription pills and I went to Fox Tech.

I would say Timberwilde Elementary, but upon further thought, most of the kids there are on Ritalin. Drugs are such a very prevalent part of society, even in grade school, that you have to educate your child at home regarding the dangers.

I think that's because of Party Central University, or Texas State, or whatever they are calling it these days. Also because meth is cheap and so addicting. That drug is devastating countless communities.
