o matter where you’re moving—or whether or not you have children—education is an
important aspect for anyone considering relocation. Studies have shown that multiple
educational options and quality school districts rank among the most important factors
for relocating individuals and families.
Whether your preference is private, public, charter, homeschool, higher education, trade, or
technical schools, there’s no doubt that the Dallas-Fort Worth area offers plenty of options for
today’s families. According to the Dallas Chamber, the area’s education service regions include
205 independent school districts with nearly 2,000 schools and 1. 2 million kindergarten through
12th grade students.

With approximately 6. 6 million residents, the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington MSA area is the second-largest
metropolitan area in Texas (behind Houston) – and it only continues to grow. As of the 2010 Census, Fort
Worth alone ranked as the fastest-growing large city in Texas with a population of 741,206 and a growth
rate of 38. 6 percent.
