What's your definition of successful?

My point of view goes back to parental involvement in determining how well a school does. The students have the support system at school and at home. How well a school rates attracts families, hence making certain areas more desirable.

Looks like they are about to start building a ton of new homes north of I-10. I know some of the Cypress building would be considered more south 290. Newland Communities ( Cinco Ranch developer ) has about 4,000 acres under contract in the vicinity of Hwy. 529 and Grand Parkway.

It's all relative indeed. I bet my house that nobody in this forum belongs to the top 1% income earners (they are to busy making that next million to bother with useless forums post). To them (1%ers) we are all equally worthless.

Newland communities having 4,000 acres on the north side is possibly the best thing that could happen. Should balance out the area nicely. I know Bridgleand is going to be huge as well. It's only a matter of time before 99 is a parking lot (1-2 years?).

According to CNN, making at least $394k a year qualifies someone to be in the 1%.

What it takes to get into the top 1% - Nov. 20, 2012

Might want to rethink that bet!

All that Grand Parkway traffic will make I10 and 290 a parking lot.

"But on average, the top 1% earned $1.12 million, up from $980,000 the year before."

one comment had the following point : "Please don't confuse 1% of income and wealth. These are two very different things." This is an excellent point as well.

This does not tell the whole story either, I would need to know what is the median and mode before capitulating to your assumption. Statistics are funny, they are what they are but different people will interpret them to suit their arguments. I suspect it would only help my point rather then hurt it though.

I stand by my original post.

Your original post just stated 1% income earners, it did not say anything about "average" or "median" income of 1%'s. And $394k of income qualifies as being in the 1%, I didn't say anything about how much wealth they have on top of income.

Millionaires and Billionaires still look down on you (even if you make 400K per year and live in Katy) and me (I am not even close to 400K) so.....that was my point....again, it's all relative.

Are you implying that to attend Katy High School you must live in a house, and not an apartment?

How do you know the kids weren't from some other area, and just driving on South Fry?
