Check out the Texas School map and it'll give you a brief idea where the better neighborhoods are. It even marked where the southside is. Texas School Performance Maps The ones with the higher ranked schools are *usually* the more desirable areas.

That School map helps. So if I understand you correctly, bad schools mean bad neighborhoods?

You are welcome, Mandy

Yup, Soldier, that's correct. Of course, there are "mediocre" schools in good neighborhoods, as well, but the schools in the blue color generally represent the more desirable areas. If you move the map out towards Robstown, you'll see the colors are in red. Believe me, not good...

Don't forget that you can always go down to the police department and ask for crime stats in an area if you are unsure.

Does that work for any city, or mostly for Corpus? I ask because I am currently stationed at Fort Bliss TX, I dont have any kids at all, I am single. The whole city is red and orange.. does that make the whole city a bad area to live? I am not trying to knock this city.. just wanting to make sure your theory works in multiple cities.

I cannot say for certainty in other cities, especially those that are smaller, but generally speaking I have seen that the worse the schools, the less of a desirable neighborhood it tends to be. I have been trying to relocate out of Corpus Christi for over a year now, and after researching numerous schools in different Texas cities, this argument holds water. You're not going to find a great school in a slummish hood and vice versa. Now of course, just because a school is mediocre doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad neighborhood, but I'd definitely research the area more. Hope that helps.
