Talk to me about Benbrook, TX

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Well, we may be moving to Ft.Worth.  My mother in law lives in the Crowley ISD and all the public schools there have terrible ratings.  The only nearby school with a great rating is in Benbrook, TX   about 20 mins away.   Anyone live there, have any comments.  I drove thru it and it seemed like an older area, a little shabby but clean and calm.  I was afraid that it was going to be a very high end area with million dollar homes way out of my $1000/mo lease range.  Just like to hear what others think of the area.

I have friends that live in Benbrook. They really enjoy it. They chose Benbrook because it has a low crime rate, but I do think it is more expensive than surrounding areas.

I can only tell you it has a superb library, as my aunt is the head librarian! I haven't spent much time there, but they really seem to love it.

You'll definitely find something in your price range out there.  I didn't know Crowley schools had a bad reputation or any different from Benbrook.  Can't imagine it's too much different.

I just came across your post and don't know if you are still considering the Benbrook area.  We moved to Benbrook about a year ago and have been happy with the decision.  My son has not started school yet but the elementary school ratings were a big factor.  We also enjoy having the YMCA/Community Center and the nice park nearby.  There are older areas but also a good deal of new (and newer) construction as you go further south on 377.  We were fortunate to find a foreclosure at a great price in a nice area around Whitestone golf course.  Golf was certainly not an attraction for me but it is a very quiet neighborhood with a nice mix of retired/semi-retired couples and families.

 

Good luck with your decision and let me know if you end up in the area.  We are always up for a play date!
