I am relocating to SA soon and I would like as much information on areas,schools and culture as possible.I came to SA 5 yrs ago TDY for about 30 days and I stayed on the Southside of SA.I didn't get out much do to training but I notice a lot of the locals didn't seem friendly.I live in a multi-cultural military community now and I have a 6yr old.I would like a predominatly military community that is multi-cultural.Please don't suggest converse because I heard terrible things about the elementary school.I heard the staff was really snobby and that won't work for my child.I would a area and school that is diverse,has hands on and is military and family friendly.I am a single mother so I would also like an area that won't discriminate against me for that,kid friendly and laid back.

I'm sorry you had a bad experience in San Antonio five years ago, Toochay. People usually find us to be pretty friendly.

I've posted before about how much I like the NE. I live in the Longs Creek Elementary area. I have had at least one child at the school since 1999 and have been very happy with it. The cultural makeup of the surrounding neighborhoods pretty well mirrors that of the city. It's not predominantly military, but we have many families with ties to Ft. Sam and Randolph. There are no apartments that feed into the school, but homes start around the low 100s and there are opportunities for renting. I can give you names of specific subdivisions if you are interested.

We are conveniently close to 1604, 35 and 281 and not too far from 410.
