    @priyaseeni Welcome to Houston! Sugarland does have good Middle schools. Some of them are Fort settlement middle school which is zoned to clements highschool and Common wealth Elementry. First Colony middle school zoned to clements as well and Austin Parkway/Colony meadows elementary. I know for Commonwealth they opened the KG registration in early April. I would strongly urge you to call up Fortbend ISD and enquire about there cut off for registration. I hope youre not too late to get in.

    Also Katy and Woodlands have good schools and indian community.

    Thank you Chitravivek for the detailed info.I was checking online for apartment nearby to Fort Settlement school and also,tried calling them.I heard from the school that only one apartment is under their zone-Regency@ First Colony.Do you know anything about Sartartia Middle School.Also,is First Colony school as good as Fort Settlement.

    appreciate all your help :)

    Yes first colony is good. Sartaria should be your last option. Fortsettlement is best. How about rent a house ?

    Sure.We will check either for Fort Settlement or First Colony.
    I was checking on the rental option for nearby homes to Fort setlement,but it seems to be expensive around $3K for a 2 or 3 BHK.Do you know if there are any community which will lease Town homes or row houses or Condominium for lesser rent range around Fort Settlement.Thank you again for all your info and help.This really helped me to narrow down our school option to either Fort Settlement or First Colony middle school.Thanks.

    Have you checked river stone apts they are zoned to FSM. Here house rents are high as it's most popular burbs. Sartaria is not too bad it's a recent school in Telfair and quiet popular. You can check it. They do have a new apt there too.

    Hi Chitravivek,

    Hope you are doing well.

    My husband is currently in Sugar Land to look for the apartments.We checked with Regency@firstcolony,but they don't have any units available until July for the model were wanted to rent in.

    So,he was checking with Retreat@riverside and was happy with the apartment,but our only concern was the middle school.If possible,can i call to discuss about this.
    Since we are new to this area and my only priority is middle school,i wanted to make sure we are making the right decision.i will not trouble you after this :)

    thank you
