Richmond's Best Neighborhoods Defined by the Best Schools

Hi friend,

The data that supports defining the best schools can be pulled from multiple sources. We have niche.com, greatschools.org, and by far, my favorite, the Texas Education Agency (TEA). The TEA is going to be the most accurate and non-biased resource for anyone researching schools. As of February 19th, 2024, the ratings for the 2022-2023 school year have not been released yet. This is due to 100 school districts across Texas fighting against the release of these school ratings. This is rather unfortunate for us, but no worries, we are going to reference the school ratings for 2021-2022. Keep in mind these ratings come two years after no ratings were reported due to the pandemic. I have been doing monthly research looking for an update on the outcome of the lawsuit, but there has been no such update. I reached out to my representative today, so I hope to have an update soon. One thing to keep in mind is that post-pandemic, a lot of schools were struggling. Some schools had their rating dropped, which I believe to be great schools that will rebound. I will try to make note of this.

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) gives a rating A-F. For this article and blog post, I am going to focus on A and B-rated schools and their corresponding neighborhoods. Keep in mind that more than one type of school (more than one elementary/middle/high) services the larger neighborhood, so before buying a home for a particular school, please make sure the school you are seeking is zoned to the home you desire. Another thing to keep in mind is that in the growing areas with master-planned communities, zoning is bound to change. All proposed zoning changes for the 2024-2025 school year have been posted on the corresponding school district's website, so be sure to check there if you are buying a particular home for a certain school. If a school was on the cusp of being an A or B. If that is true for a school, I will note this. A school rated 89 and one rated 90 are going to be very similar. Lastly, some schools have received designations. This means they scored high in a particular subject or have shown drastic improvement from the year prior. I will be sure to point this out as well.

I am writing this series for 32 cities in the Greater Houston area, including Houston. If you want to see this whole series, click here.
