I like that it's right in middle of Little Rock and Bryant. It's close to grocery stores, and now shopping outlets. I think you get more housing for your buck, and the neighbor I live in seems to be pretty safe. My biggest complaint would be the quality of the schools. Two of my children now attend private schools, because the level of education and the number of qualifying teachers are a hit and miss in the Bryant School District. My 9 year was struggling in reading during his 1st and 2nd grade year at Robert L Davis Elementary to the point they thought it would be best to hold him back. He's been in private school for the past two years now, and has been a straight A student both years.
Review Alexander
I have lived in Alexander since 2007 and it has been an excellent experience. It's far enough out of Little Rock but still close enough to shopping, dinning, and entertainment. Uber is also available here if you need transportation somewhere. The school system is good as well. It's a great area to raise a family.
Alexander is close enough to Little Rock that we have access to hospitals, restaurants, and other amenities. It is far enough away, that we have the quiet and safety feel of the country. My home is 10 minutes from the hospital. We are 3 minutes from our elementary school. I know the faculty and staff at our school and they know me.
