Trinity High School is in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD, and it does offer an IB program. https://www.hebisd.edu/Trinity
Unfortunately, that would be a bit of a drive to Keller since it is east of 121, and the only direct commute would be on surface streets with stoplights, school zones, etc.

Yeah, Grapevine, Timber Creek, Birdville all might be a better choice.

I wonder if Northwest HS area would work?

The Northwest HS zone includes a wide variety of areas from suburban to rural, including locales such as Justin, Rhome, and Newark. Rhome and Newark are pretty far out and would be more rural, and I'm not sure that would be the lifestyle OP is seeking. You might also look into the Harvest development in Northlake, which is split between Northwest ISD (Northwest HS zone) and Argyle ISD. To my understanding, Argyle ISD is stronger academically than Northwest ISD (Argyle ISD is sometimes considered one of the "top" DFW school districts), though being a smaller district there might be fewer academic and extracurricular offerings relative to NISD.

Generally speaking, there will not be good shopping access in the Northwest HS zone, considering that much of that zone is still rural except around Texas Motor Speedway, the 114/156 intersection and the 35W corridor. If you are close to 114, then places like Southlake would be within fairly easy reach (albeit a bit of a drive). The Byron Nelson HS zone (generally most of Northwest ISD east of 35W, excluding the NISD section of Canyon Falls which goes to Northwest HS) will be closer to that.

There seem to be some decent homes in your price range in Sendera Ranch (feel free to PM me and I can tell you a bit more about the school situation there), although this is in the V.R. Eaton HS zone (and not Northwest HS or Byron Nelson HS). Sendera Ranch is a large development, but somewhat isolated in that only 2-lane roads lead out of that development. Sendera Ranch would definitely be a downgrade from somewhere like The Woodlands though (if you currently live in The Woodlands proper that is), as it seems to be your fairly basic, "average" suburb with an HOA providing a few standard amenities.

You might also look at the older neighborhoods right next to the Keller Post Office.

Awesome, thanks for your insight. I actually live in the Montgomery side of Spring which is part of the Conroe ISD. I actually used to live and enjoy The Woodlands for what they have to offer and I was looking for a similar setting around Keller in the same price range. I am definitely going to look at some of your suggestions. Thanks so much!

I am trying to get some feedback on some good real estate for our money. We currently live in the Spring TX/The Woodlands TX area now and I would like a similar environment to raise our family.

I would like some idea on areas to live:

Max budget: $360k/4bd/3ba
Family friendly feel with good shopping, and great schools. My youngest has some reading challenges/ADHD so I would like a school district that can support that. I am a licensed counselor so I can work just about anywhere but would prefer my husband to have a short commute, under 25 min.

I love Addison, but I understand we are priced out of the area. What are your suggestions?
Addison? - You must really want your husband to spend his life commuting

Move into the Keller ISD catchment area, it's a similar environment to what you have now, most major stores and entertainment businesses nearby, very good schools and a reasonable commute

Not looking for Addison anymore. I understand now that the distance is too great and I would like to stay married
