Eanes ISD News: West Ridge Middle School No Longer Exemplary

Posted by Tom Bates

 

Eanes ISD in Austin has always been The Texas School District that had every single school as exemplary schools.  Want the best ranked schools? Easy, just live in Eanes ISD.  Well, that just changed a little bit this week.  The new 2011 Texas Education Agency (TEA) school rankings are out and Eanes ISD is missing one of its trophies.  West Ridge Middle School is now ranked a second best “Recognized” down a notch from “Exemplary”.  

But don’t get too worked up, West Ridge Middle School is a superb middle school still, it just lost some points in testing this year.  My guess is that they will be back to Exemplary very soon!

Austin neighborhoods that attend West Ridge are mostly west of 360 Capital of Texas Highway.  You can see all the Austin school rankings and Eanes school rankings for TEA 2011 test results here.

2 New Eanes Modern Spec Homes

Posted by Tom Bates

 

Checked up on those two new construction industrial Austin modern homes under construction right now in the Eanes ISD.  The builder is asking $850,000 for each.  They each have 3500 sf of conditioned space and great canyon views.  Builder told me they will be very industrial, sleek and modern.  So far the construction is steel beams and concrete…no wood frame that I can see.  I’m hoping that these two Austin modern homes will be executed well.  I think we’ve all been dissapointed lately with Austin modern spec homes the last couple of years.  I’m supposed to get the floorplans today and I’ll update this post when I learn more.

Why are some Austin Schools Better than Others?

Posted by Tom Bates

 

Here is a good article written up in the Austin Statesman discussing some of the reasons why some Austin schools and Austin school districts test better than others.  Not much surprise that it has a lot to do with where the money is and who has more of it.  Read the full article at the Statesman here.

From a real estate market perspective, my school-conscious clients tend to focus their school search in one of a few basic areas:

Austin Area School Districts:
#1 – Eanes ISD is most popular with my clients BY FAR. View homes for sale in Eanes ISD
#2 – Lake Travis ISD is the 2nd most popular district for my clients. View homes for sale in Lake Travis ISD
#3 – Leander ISD is third most popular school district for my clients. View homes for sale in Leander ISD

Popular Austin ISD Schools:
#1 – Casis Elementary
#2 – Kizer Elementary
#3 – Caraway Elementary

We have the updated list of all schools and how they recently tested if you want a copy of it.  Just let one of us know.
