Lovejoy ISD is a very special place. It serves the cities of Allen, Lucas, Fairview, and McKinney. Remember in Texas, an Independent School District is INDEPENDENT of a town or city. So you will often see a school district serve multiple cities and towns. It began as a one-room school house in 1917 and now serves almost 3,000 students in a K-12 school system. Did you know it is the third smallest school district, in terms of student population, in the area? The school district has an extremely high economic advantage rating of 98%.
In August 2015 StartClass ranked them as the #1 public school district in the State of Texas and the #5 school district in the United States. That's a pretty big deal and why real estate in the area commands top dollar. If you want to read about all the awards and commendations, check out this page. If you are considering buying a home here, keep in mind that you are paying a premium for your children to attend these schools.
Senior Living (55+)
One of the nicest senior living neighborhoods around is Heritage Ranch. This quite gated Fairview neighborhood greets you with a majestic water entrance. The homes line winding streets and wrap around a stunning golf course. The homes are beautiful and designed for aging in place and many backyards face the tree lined greenways.
Exclusive Estate Homes
Tanquility Farms is a intimate neighborhood with stunning homes. Homes rarely come up for sale in this exclusive neighborhood, so be ready to act fast. Each home is a custom creation and nestled in a beautiful peaceful setting.
The LivingWell Team Pick
How about a "best kept secret"? Serenity is one of our favorite neighborhoods. It was built on the old McKinney golf course and has an amazing entrance with a huge catch and release pond filled with fish. If you or the kids love to bass fish, you can have many hours of fun fishing right outside your front door. The homes of course are beautiful and the kids are zoned to attend Lovejoy ISD.
We lived in Fairview for 10 years and loved it. The people were lovely, the location was great and it was a very peaceful place to raise our girls. Give us a call if you want more info...
