My family is thinking of relocating to Tulsa from San Antonio. We are a christian conservative family with two young children aged 2.5 & 5. Any recommendations for a nice suburban area that is pleasing to the eye? Not big on flat areas... would prefer rolling hills. We plan on renting an apartment for at least 6 months and then buying a home (in the $185-215K range). We also have a son who will be going to Kinder. next fall. So, we would like to rent an apartment close to where we would buy a home. Any recommendations on an ideal school district? Any christian based preschool recommendations? We have both children in preschool here, two days a week and pay $360/month. Any mid-size Methodist church recommendations?

First Methodist downtown has a very large pre-school. I used to pick kids up from there to babysit. I'm sure others will give you suggestions on where to buy a house. I've lived in the same house for 37 years so I'm not much help for that.

There are parts of northern, eastern, and southern Broken Arrow that have rolling hills. The schools are all great. No Broken Arrow school was named on the "Needs Improvement" list released last week.

Broken ARrow would be an excellent choice for the conservative Christian view point...though I can't think of a place in OK that would not fit that description to be honest.

Christian pre-schools: W.E.E. at Arrow Heights Baptist; There are others...that's just the one that came to mind because that's where my children went MANY years ago...they're in high school now!

There are several Methodist churches in town - First United Meth. on Main street is the largest in town, but not by any means HUGE.

If rolling hills is a priority, then south Tulsa in the Jenks school district is ideal.
Anything south of 71st St between Riverside and Memorial Rd is "hilly".
Here's a short list of neighborhoods in that area with homes in your price range- most of them are well-established with homes built from the 70's-90's.
Darlington South
Minshall Park
Silver Oaks
Richmond Hills
Walnut Creek
Bradford Place
Pointe South

If you're willing to drive 10-20 mins to "town" then Sand Springs & Sapulpa offer rolling hills and newer homes (some on acreage) in your price range.

Take your pick. Broken Arrow, Jenks, Owasso. They're all great areas in my opinion. They've all got great schools and low crime. We moved to Owasso and have been VERY pleased. We did a lot of looking before we moved, both physically and on line and I don't think you can go wrong with any of these areas, and I'm sure there are more like them. It's mostly a matter of where you'll be driving and how much you want to drive. Best of Luck to you, and have a safe move. You'll be happy here.

We may be moving from tulsa to San Antonio, so we would appreciate your feedback on the reverse. Great Preschools are Fellowship Bible Church, First United Methodist, and Asbury United Methodist. My oldest son is in kindergarten at Regent Prep School Technology Committee of Regent Preparatory School. I LOVE it. They have a pre-k program but not for kids under 4.First UMC and Asbury UMC and Fellowship Bible Church are great churches too. I grew up at Asbury, and now I attend First. Feel free to try our young family sunday school if you get a chance to visit First. We are called Sycamore.
