There are a number of great public schools in Houston. The Spring Branch Independent School District serves the Memorial area (as well as Tanglewood and Sandalwood). Conroe Independent School District includes the Woodlands area schools. Houston Independent School District can be hit and miss as it's one of the largest school districts in the United States...it does includes schools in River Oaks, which are some of the best in the city.

Kingwood schools are excellent - we are in the Humble ISD school district. Lots of exemplary schools, and a great place to live!!!

If you're talking about the quality of the educational system, the best school district is Aldine. They do an amazing job and get results that rival systems in significantly higher socio-economic areas. However, you probably don't want to live there. The next best school district is Cy-Fair, and that area has a strong and diversified economic base, good housing, and good neighborhood support systems. Witht he booming development and plenty of open land, Cy-Fair probably will be the largest district in the state in another 20 years.

When I looked at schools for my children, what mattered to me was what they offered in terms of extra cirricular activities, honors programs, school budget, school stats/test scores, enrichment programs, tutoring opportunities, student to teacher ratios, and what was thier projected growth for the next 5 years (this is important b/c your child could be rezoned several times resulting in 3 or 4 school transfers even though you lived in the same residence). So set our standards high for your children and start researching and see which district best suits your needs for your kiddos! I am a fan of Cy Fair ISD (I taught here!), Humble ISD, Conroe ISD, Katy ISD, HISD (Memorial, Heights, etc.)

As a Realtor I can never say which is best or better. I will tell you that we live in the Katy (KISD) school district...SOUTH OF I-10) and we would not live in any other area or have our son go to any other schools. Hope that answers your question.

Spring Branch ISD is the best school district in the Houston area, hands down. Some of the outlying areas, like Sugar Land, Katy & The Woodlands have great schools as well, but if you want to be close-in, Spring Branch ISD is the best. South of I-10 is even better. Both Memorial & Stratford HS are excellent; both made US News "Best High Schools."
