League City is the best. Agree - Galveston has bad schools. Pasadena is good if you get the area that is closest to Fairmont Parkway and specifically zoned to Deer Park schools. I wouldn't do any other section of it though. I don't personally care for Dickinson and haven't heard too much favorable about their schools. Other than that, I don't know enough about Dickinson to comment further.

Yep out of those choices League City is the best right now. As said above Pasadena near Fairmont Parkway seems pretty nice. Dickinson has good and bad. There is a ton of new development where Dickinson touches League City, but it has some rough spots the likes of which you will not see in League City, and League City has about 4x the population. I would not choose to live in Galveston or South Houston. We just went out to eat on the Seawall last weekend and reaffirmed my opinion of Galveston.
