Hello, welcome. We are from Tx but just moved to the SA area about 8 months ago. Check this site out, it may answer many of your questions: http://www.sanantonionaturalparenting.com
Also, search for the above group on Facebook, they have a lot of newcomer q&a's, or you could post there as well with questions. It is a nice, active group. I think their last meeting was on homeschooling, too. I've never been to any of their meetings, though.
We are also renting a home but over in the NE side of town. Found it on www.hotpads.com
Yes, the Circle School seems really neat but you and your kid(s) have to interview to get in. I know and have heard of some awesome people who have interviewed and were not initially accepted, not sure why, but it is certainly something to check out.
The Acorn and Discovery School are also supposed to be great preschools, if you are looking for something like that. Though I know you mentioned you hs.
Also, I would scout the city-data.com forums (search for San Antonio) for more info on the SA area.We are still getting to know the area ourselves. Good luck!

Hubby is working off of Huebner Road and will drive up to 45 minutes if we can find a land to garden not surrounded by commerical farm fields.
Where are the great farmer's markets?
Anyone run co-ops? I run Frontier.
Midwife or Doc willing to take on VBA4C?
What about The Circle School - looks great!
Great secular groups to join that are active and families gather?
Anywhere not to look?
What should we know about San Antonio:)?
Thanks for your help and see you soon!
