Hello everybody,
My online reasearch is getting more confusing about which area & location is the best:
1.North Arlington near River Legacy Park or 2. South Arlington south of I-20??
I'm asking about schools, real estate market & friendly people living there.
Please give me your input

If schools are a major concern, stay in South Arlington in the Martin High School feeder system.

Im interested in this question too. More specifically (area feeding to arlington hs vs martin hs vs lamar). I know martin is best but i wonder whats best between arlington and lamar.

OP: Avoid anything south of 20 and east of 157/cooper. Those schools are trash. Gangs, drugs, school fights

I'd agree with this. We live off West of Lincoln and the neighborhoods here are great. Our house is amazing - and more house than we thought we could afford at 31.

However, the apartments East of here get a little shady and I can't wait to see them get torn down. I would definitely would never live east of Collins.

I can't comment on the diff between the 2 inferior high schools. I would likely pick Lamar over Arlington simply because Lamar serves more affluent neighborhoods and unfortunately, higher income areas tend to have a parent community that stresses education more.

Just also keep in mind the proximity of some highly rated Charter schools near Narl. Summit, Harmony(in S. Euless) and Arlington Classics Academy are all well located for NARL.

Default I may be too late...

I know I am likely too late but I would say go to the lamar area if you have a child in elementary or will have one, because of butler elementary. It gets very good test scores, to the point it has parents waiting outside sometimes a day before to do student sign up for kids that live out of district. If you live in district though you'll be all set, then theyd go to shackelford which is good(bailey would be better but thats in arlington area), and they just remodeled Lamar entirely so it has modern equipment and such. Good luck.
p.s., I agree with what has been said, be weary of parts of arlington east of cooper. Up by river legacy though by green oaks it is good until collins though.
