Many people move to Sugar Land because we have many high-ranking, high-scoring public schools. Most Sugar Land schools are in the Fort Bend Independent School District, but a few fall into Lamar Consolidated Independent School District (West Fort Bend). While these two school districts by themselves may not be as high ranking as competing school districts, such as Katy ISD, that is because they serve larger areas and include other cities besides Sugar Land.

Sugar Land schools themselves are very highly rated by both state ratings and the scores on GreatSchools.org. For example, out of the 21 area elementary schools, 20 are Exemplary or Recognized (that is 95 percent!). Plus, most of our middle schools and high schools score 8 to 10 on 10-point scale at GreatSchools.org…these scores are based on actual test results statewide.

Many people relocating Sugar Land, who have children, look for homes “zoned to the best schools.” But most Sugar Land schools are great schools…so that really doesn’t narrow your criteria down that much. Plus, it depends on the age of your children. If your kids are in elementary school, then you have lots of choices for where to live because most of our elementary schools are high-performing. If you have middle school or high school aged kids, then you may want to target your focus, but we still have many neighborhoods/area to choose from. And what does a person mean by “best schools”? Is a GreatSchools.org score of 7 or above good enough or do you only want scores of 9 to 10?

Your best source of help with finding homes zoned to the best Sugar Land schools (and meets your definition of “best schools”) is to contact a knowledgeable Sugar Land real estate expert with school-aged kids. In my experience, only agents who are active in the school system can give you the complete picture.

“I could not say enough good things about Sheila. We have moved all over the world and her service and can do attitude is the BEST I have ever seen. She provides a complete service and really represents you to ensure all your needs are met. She is full of good ideas and pointing out other angles you might not have considered. For this move we were moving from abroad and everything went smoothly thanks to Sheila. We are more than happy to recommend Sheila to anyone. “

--Henry

“Sheila was the best realtor we could have ever asked for. We could always depend on her to get the job done and she was always looking out for our best interests. I was going through the tragic loss of my mother during the sale and purchase of our home, and Sheila went above and beyond in ensuring that all was being taken care of and everything was moving along smoothly on BOTH ends. Where the other realtor failed during the process, Sheila jumped in to pick up the pieces and kept things moving along. She is dependable and trustworthy, and has great knowledge of the market and lenders. Her superb advice and expertise made the whole process, which could have been very stressful given the circumstances, move along as smoothly and possible. People like Sheila are few and far between, and we are so grateful that we had the opportunity to work with her.”

--Talley

“Sheila is simply an outstanding realtor. She helped my wife and I sell our fourth and purchase our fifth house. Out of all the realtors, she is honestly the best! She treats the transaction as her own, provides you timely updates as changes occur. Her advice also saved us from costly pitfalls that could have ruined the sell and purchase of our new house. My advice: 1) Use Sheila as your realtor 2) Listen to her recommendations! She is an expert and provides outstanding advice. Sheila thank you for all of your hard work. You did an outstanding job!”

Warning About New State Rating System

The State of Texas recently implemented a new school rating system that is very confusing and misleading. The “Performance Index” and “Distinction Designations” can make a poorly performing school look as good as a highly performing school.

Let’s look at two Sugar Land schools:

  • Walker Station Elementary: One of the highest-performing schools in Sugar Land with a long history of high performance.
  • Townewest Elementary: One of the lowest-performing schools in Sugar Land with a long history of low performance.

Under the new state rating system, these schools look to be equal (see graphic below). But then, if you look at the Greatschools.org rating (which is based on actual test scores in relation to other schools in the same state) you can see there is a large difference between school scores.

I recommend that you stick with Greatschools.org…test scores are not subjective like the new state rating system seems to be.

Sugar Land School Search

If you want to look up a specific Sugar Land school to see its statistics, then you can used the search below. However, the new accountability system presented can be confusing and the old state ratings have been removed. To determine the quality of the school, based on test results relative to other schools in the state, you are better off checking the Greatschools.org scores on the Sugar Land Schools page. It seems easier to understand a score (on a scale from 1 to 10) than Texas’ new accountability system.            BACK TO: Home  |  Neighborhoods  |  Schools  |  Homes for Sale  |  Real Estate Buying  |  Real Estate Selling  |  Market Reports  |  Reports  |  Remodeling/Repairs   Share this information with your friends…      Socialize with me…                     Agent: Sheila Cox, Realtor Broker: Keller Williams Southwest1650 Highway 6, #350 (Map)Sugar Land , TX 77478Phone: (832) 779-2890 PRIVACY POLICY: It’s simple…I will not sell or share your info with third-parties.
