One of the most important factors for home buyers who have children is finding out more about the San Antonio schools in the district where their new home will be located. Home buyers want to ensure that the schools are up to the standards that they expect.
This is important because children will attend public schools in the district where his or her family resides. There is no busing of students across district boundaries with the exception of some of the magnet schools which are highly specialized in specific fields.
San Antonio schools vary in their ranking from district to district. The city is unique in that the area’s 19 school districts function as separate, independent entities. Each has its own superintendent, its own elected board of education, and its own taxing authority. The Texas Education Agency in Austin oversees all districts, but they function apart from city or county jurisdiction.
Newcomers to San Antonio are often surprised to find that the city has so many public school districts. It is highly recommended that the home buyer contact the school district in which they plan to reside or the private school of their choice and set appointments to visit the school prior to making their home buying decision.
