our home isn't that expensive, but those kids are going to go to the same schools they do and get the same education while their parents pay more money for the house and more in property taxes, so it's a better deal to live in a less expensive house in a good town. Living in a less expensive house in a better town is something I read on LBYM before buying our house :)

Interestingly enough, on a completely different forum, I was just giving the same advice to another poster! And yeah, that advice was given often by certain posters many times on LBYM.

Re: your other post, in Illinois there was one set of districts for elementary and another for high school, so there were some unusual combos. Here the districts are the same for K-12, although sometimes you have some "less affluent" elementaries and middles feeding into a "more affluent" high school.

Also, we went from Dallas ISD to our current one, and the change was similar (possibly even more extreme). We went from "we really want to raise a total of 10K for [some item]" to a fund raiser where there were some individuals contributing 5K apiece. It was...different.
