We will be moving to Fort Worth, TX from Denver, CO because of my husbands job and I would like some advice on good places to live in Fort Worth. My husband will be working at 8600 Will Rogers Blvd
Ft. Worth, TX 76140 (15 -25 minute drive from work to home would be okay). We are looking at houses that are around $130,000 to $170,000. Also, we have an 8 year old daughter advice on good schools.

It looks like you'll have options in that price range in Burleson so I would start there.

I was going to recommend/link you to the TEA site for information on schools but I don't understand so far how to get the same type of list that they had for older years. They used to provide a list of schools by district that indicated whether a school was "Exemplary" or just "Recognized" for example. But for there 2013 ratings I can't figure out where that is/how to generate it/what the alternative is.

The "best" public schools in Fort Worth is generally considered to be the Tanglewood area but there is not going to be much there in your price range. There is 1 condo listing for 159k but that is about it.

There might be a couple of options in Benbrook as well.

These are excellent elementary schools in southwest Arlington, a very good commute for your husband and in your price range. They are served by a great Middle & High School, too. Work with a realtor and only accept houses that are served by these schools:

Ditto Elementary
Wood Elementary
Corey Elementary

I would pick SW Arlington over Burleson, all day.
