I currently live in Little Rock, Arkansas but have always wanted to move to Texas. I been applying to many jobs and there is one at Tarrant County College that I think I will get. So I was wondering about housing and schools. The job would be at the South campus of the college, but I am willing to travel about 30 mins if it means that is the only way to find good schools and good housing. I have two daughters one who will be a junior when we move job starts in January and one is a first grader. I am thinking about Keller but was wondering how much of a commute that would be. My eldest daughter heard that Keller Central had a really good drill team from a friend so that is the school she is pushing for. Also my price range for a home is around 150,000 to maybe 250,000 or a little more. Please if anyone could help??

South Campus of TCC to Keller will be a lot longer than 30 minutes...probably closer to an hour each way. If you want a shorter commute with good schools, look in Burleson and Mansfield. (Mansfield Timberview HS was in the state finals for football this year.)

Keller would be a somewhat difficult commute depending on traffic volume. Better would be to consider some of the closer communities like Crowley and Mansfield. Look at the Citi-data stats (assuming there are some) for those two communities. Arlington would be another possibility. Finding a house at that price should not be too difficult. Congratulations on your decision, new job, and welcome to Fort Worth.

^ yes I live in Keller and would NOT want that commute. Most of the HS around here have excellent drill teams and bands etc...
My vote would be for Mansfield.
