Advice sought: Husband considering job in what appears to be the northern part of Fort Worth (commerce/2nd 76102 zip code). Lifestyle: Suburban family with young children. kids are 7 and 3. Schools very important. May consider public school. Currently attend montessori and I see several montessori schools in the area. So might want to be close to one of the montessori's. But advice sought on "good" public schools as well. Anyone who has advice about the montessori's in southlake and fort worth would be appreciated as well. Want to live in a neighborhood with kids running around, lots of fun stuff (parks, pools, etc). young families, safe. short commute to hubbies job and kids schools. would like a house in the upper $100's would like to keep it under $200k especially if we continue on the montessori route! :-) Heritage looks neat from what I see online! Any advice welcome. Thank you!

I would look in Heritage and Villages of Woodland Springs. Crawford Farms is also a good neighborhood. I have friends in all three. Most of the schools are either exemplary or recognized. My friends are very happy with the schools in the neighborhood.

I live in Heritage, and love it, because it is a fun community for families (we have a son in 5th grade). The schools associated with Heritage (Keller ISD) are excellent, so I had no problem switching my son from private school when we lived in Chicago to public school when we moved down here.

As far as prices - in Heritage at the moment, the only new construction is for The Bluffs, and that's definitely out of your price range.

You could find something under $200k in the Trinity section of Heritage; it's fully developed, so you'd be looking at an existing home. There's a house, for example, on my street for sale for under $160k for 2600sf, 4 bedroom, 3 bath.

Good luck with your move!

good to know! I appreciate it. Does Trinity have access to all the same amenities: the pools, clubhouse, exercise rooms, etc. Is one of the elementary schools particularly better than the others in the area-looking online it looks like there are several elementary schools in heritage, not sure which one is in trinity? Are you able to pick which school you want your child to go to or do they have boundaries and you have to send your child where the district has drawn the lines?

Boundary lines are set by the school district. some transfers are permitted on an as need basis.
The 3 elementary schools for the Heritage community are: Lone Star, Eagle Ridge, and Bette Perot.
based on where Trinity lies it would either be Lone Star or Bette Perot. (all exemplary)
All of Heritage has acess to pools, tennis courts,clubhouse etc... HOA fees are pretty reasonable for the amenties.

YOu can look at the map on the KISD website
