another school you could look into (particularly for your littlest) is escuelita del alma. my daughter goes there and it is a wonderful, progressive school. we couldn't be happier. i do know there is a substantial wait list, but it never hurts to check into it.
neighborhood wise, have you checked out brentwood or highland hills? brentwood has a good elementary and all the families i know that live there love it. it's not dual language, but a solid school.
i live in highland hills (78752, just across lamar from brentwood/crestview) and you could definitely find a rental for a family of 4 for less than 2700. it's not for everyone, but we do have an active parents group, I know at least one of the families are from brooklyn. most of us are leaning towards sending our children to an elementary outside the hood (personally, we are looking at dual languages schools as well).80233
Thank you allgirls! Everybody has been amazing! I will look up Sunset Valley & Perez. Our current situation is finding a place to live! We are still in corp. housing up north but looking near Becker and have had NO luck... 78704 would be ideal. It is so late in the game for public but I won't give up hope. Our dilemma is classic, enough space for family of 4 + cat (at least 1700sq ft), some kind of yard and hard floors in main living areas under $2700... Help!80124
Hi Betsy, If you are willing to consider the north Austin/Round Rock area, check out Texas Spanish Academy. http://www.discoverroundrock.com/texas-spanish-academy-opening-soon-in-round-rock/ It is opening in the next month.
I am actually the director, so feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for all of the great replies! OK, we've made it to Austin! Right now still looking for a home, but next on my list of top priorities is finding a DL or Spanish Immersion PreK prog. for my son. It is tough because we don't know where we'll end up, maybe Lake Pointe or S/SW... Central would be ideal, but to pricey for any real Sq. footage and although there are quite a few public DL schools, not all of them are well regarded. Besides, they are undoubtedly all full and I can't seem to reach anyone at AISD. Oh, another issue is that I'm not driving yet, and hubby has to be at work by 8am on Bee Cave Rd. Someone please help me!79564
You have limited public school options for your needs but plenty of charter/ public school options starting with KG. South Austin has Eanes School district - very good - also very rich parents. South Austin is a great place since it has many facilities, very good extra curricular activities etc. The other very good school district is the suburb of Round rock. Excellent schools, average to above average crowd along with very wealthy. facilities, extra curriculars similar to South Austin but more exclusive programs available in South Austin.Good diversity in both areas. Hope this helps...79168
Moved from Brooklyn last July. Our kids are at the Magellan International School, duel lang immersion, but private. Starts with Nursery, turn 3 by September. May be full but worth a try if you are still looking. The public school programs start at K. Good luck.79143
