But we are traveling there soon so trying to keep an open mind.
I can't really say regarding cliques since I don't have kids in Carroll schools, although I have heard rumors of that. I have heard other parents comment that Carroll schools do not tolerate losing. IDK if that is true, but I've heard that multiple times.

As to "the look", parts of Keller, such as around Bear Creek Parkway, are as nice as parts of Southlake. Keep in mind, these areas are adjacent to each other. There isn't suddenly a huge difference when you cross the city line. You can live in Keller and be at the Town Center in Southlake in 10 minutes on a weekday (traffic is worse around the Town Center on weekends.)

In regards to a couple of the points made above:

You don't want anything in Keller ISD. You want Keller HS. Don't be fooled because the other 3 high schools are newer; they are not as good. Keller HS does not consider itself to be a second tier school in any way. DM me if you want specific information about our experiences so far.

Argyle HS is a good bit smaller and Byron Nelson HS (in Trophy Club) is much newer and has a beautiful building. I would suggest you download the course catalog for every ISD you are interested in and look at what options your son will have for classes. Although the main course selections will be roughly the same, they may vary a lot with electives and areas to specialize in. For example, Byron Nelson HS has "academies" for culinary arts and biomed. Other schools will have a more open approach, where any student can take any class.

Good luck!

I'd look in Colleyville. Both Grapevine and Heritage are elite at baseball and have a bit more diversity that Carroll SH. I'm not sure if this is still a fact, but Southlake was the richest small town (population under 50,000) in the United States. And then there was this: https://www.dmagazine.com/publicatio...fect-city-usa/

Keller, and Trophy Club would be good spots as well.

I agree about Westlake. Homes out there are usually $1M+.
Lewisville ISD schools aren't the best? Hebron, Flower Mound and Marcus are all great high schools, yes Lewisville High isn't the greatest but all of the other high schools are rated as better than any of the Keller schools outside of Keller High perhaps other than perhaps the colony high school.
