Hi - We are relocating to Dallas Area. We will be working in Plano.
Based on commute, we have narrowed it down to Collin or Denton Counties (however maybe not too far west or north in Denton).
We don't know anything about the area. Our other top priority is public schools. We are looking for the best.
Thoughts on where we should concentrate our search?

What's your budget?
Renting or buying?

If your "top priority" really is a great pubic school, then look no further than Plano.

I get the feeling - I could be wrong - that you have discovered your budget doesn't go very far in Plano, hence the consideration of the Denton county area?

There is really no comparison between the two areas. Plano comes by its reputation justifiably - good, well-financed public schools and buildings and excellent administration that attracts the best teachers.

You have to decide what is best for your family. Good luck.

Given the bare bones requirements of the first post, yes, Plano it is. Not sure why the focus is on counties rather than cities/neighborhoods, but you will do yourself a disservice if you don't also look at the north Richardson and Far North Dallas area (the areas that feed into PISD as well as the areas that feed into Pearce HS), parts of which are in Collin County but parts of which also creep over into Dallas County.
