Houston Heights is a fantastic neighborhood. Over the past several years, it has become one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Houston. Whether it’s Norhill Heights (wait! Isn’t that our name), Woodland Heights, Brooke Smith, Sunset Heights, or Houston Heights proper, the Greater Heights area is just a phenomenal place for both families and singles alike. It’s the kind of place that makes you want to shout from the charming bungalow rooftops, “I love living here!” Or, if you’re not into shouting, you could just quietly sip your latte and nod your head in agreement.
One of the most significant factors Houston homebuyers consider when moving to a new area is the quality of the schools. Whether you already have kids, plan to have kids, or just understand the importance of the schools to a neighborhood’s long-term value, this topic will more than likely inform your decision on where you want to live.
Houston Heights is home to some of the best schools in the city, including Harvard Elementary, Travis Elementary, Field Elementary, Hogg Middle School, and Heights High School. These schools have an excellent reputation and are much loved by parents and students.
