We live in Terrell Hills, but we are 10 houses from the AHISD boundary. I would rather pay tuition to send them to AH schools.
Does anybody know what the tuition rates are for Woodridge Elementary and AH Jr. High? Ive looked around on their website and couldnt find anything. Is it an across the board flat fee or is it income base? Are there waiting lists to get in? I read they only accept 50 tuition students, how close do they get that?
Thanks for any help and info.

Tuition can only be applied @Howard (Kinder), Cambridge, Jr. & High School. Tuition rates are about $7000/yr

I used to teach in the district a number of years ago. The tuition info I got recently from a friend who had looked into it for her daughter.

Renting a small apartment would be a more cost effective method.

It would also be a more illegal method. You have to register your child in the district of their actual residence. Don't get caught cheating this. Some districts require proof.

Not to mention, finding a low-cost rental in AHISD can be a challenge. It would probably be cheaper this way only if you would be sending multiple kids to AHISD schools. You would have to establish the AHISD residence as your address of record.

I also live in NEISD, just blocks outside the AHISD boundary, yet there are a few homes in my neighborhood that display yard signs indicating their kids participate in activities or clubs at Alamo Heights High School. These homes are definitely located in NEISD. I've always wondered if all of these people are actually paying tuition to send their kids there.

Illegal? Not so much.... unethical, that's arguable. There are everything from half-addressed garage apartments, to down-right shanties within the borders. Somewhere, someone who owns them are paying school taxes, so I don't see the problem. I have a rental within the school district that I haven't sold just so that my child can graduate from AH (they're homeschooled). I pay my school taxes and won't be renting it during their attendance.

The house next door was rented for a year by an SAPD officer for just the same reason. In his case, he in turn rented out his home during this time and did live at the address.

It is just a suggestion, if you have an ethical problem with it, then it shouldn't be an option unless you have cleared it with the district.

ethical? vouchers please.

The taxes I pay to the SAISD for schools I would never send a child should be criminal.
