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 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!
