We are moving to the DFW area and are considering Keller. One concern that we have is the School District. I understand that they will be building a new High School and redistricting. Can anyone advise us on which area's in Keller will be affected and which will remain unchanged ? We have two High School age children. How are the schools in Keller in general ?

Thanks

We live in Crawford Farms, we are in the area that will be going to the new HS. There is a boundary map on the Keller ISD website if you want to see the boundaries. Here is the link. it is under hot topics.

I personally think Keller ISD is overrated. But as with any city, one side of the district is better than the other. I would consider Central Highschool or the new highschool. As the other post said, a boundary map is available on the website. Fossil Ridge Highschool is probably the least desirable. As you look at homes in the Keller area, make sure you check what school each home would attend. Also, check the TExas Education Agency website. Look at accountability ratings for each school. This will also give you a demographic background of each school. Good luck.

I have 3 kids in the district and if you search the forum for Keller info you'll find alot of opinions. Is it the best? Utopia? no. Is it better than a whole lot of other districts ...yes.

As for the HS redistricting:
The new school should be finished for the 2009-2010 school year.

DO NOT go by the realtors websites as for what HS the house is zoned for. MANY list Keller HS as the HS when in fact ALOT of the houses south of Rapp Rd will be zoned for Central.

USE the Keller ISD website.

MY opinion differs a little from the other poster and Believe that Keller high out preforms Central. But if you have anyone interested in ROTC then Central is the school you want for them. Fossil Ridge is my least favorite as well.

I have been extremely pleased with the Middle school (Indian Springs) as well as both the lower schools. We will see how I feel about the HS after next year when my eldest will be there.

There are quite a few neighborhoods in NRH south of N Tarrent pky and west of Ruffe snow that attend Keller schools as well.

Most of the new HS and Fossil ridge HS are FT worth and not city of Keller.
Central has both Ft worth and city of Keller
Keller HS has both city of Keller and NRH

This was a huge debate when the new boundries were being drawn, ALOT of People (me included) thought that ALL Keller city kids should go to Keller HS. and NRH should be sent to Central (but they are closer to KHS than Central) Lots of People moved into neighborhoods BECAUSE they were zoned Keller HS and now they are being zoned Central. So in 2009 Willis Cove, Carriage Gate,etc...will go to Central even though they are now zoned Keller.

A good rule of thumb to remember is that any neighborhood West of highway 377 (train tracks) south to Wall Price Rd. will be going to the new high school.

and just a heads up--but zones are based on predicted growth--there could be some shifts by the time kids get ready to occupy the new building--
