Back to School in San Antonio

Although the summer sun shows no signs of waning, it’s that time of year again for kids and parents to shop for new school clothes, books, backpacks and more. Whether they’re ready or not, for most kids, the fall 2015 semester has already begun.

With a population of almost 1.5 million people, the city of San Antonio has multiple school districts and private schools to choose from. Additionally, there are also a variety of schools on the outskirts of town, in the Hill Country and hamlets around the metropolitan area.

If you have young children, now is the time to start planning their future, and a big part of that is determined by where you live and what district or private schools are available to them. Here are some facts that may help you decide the best place for your family to live:

For the best of the best:  Keystone School, the International School of the Americas and Young Women’s Leadership Academy were included in the top 50 most challenging schools in the country, based on a Washington Post analysis.
