We moved here in 2009 after being stationed at Lackland. I did extensive research on safety and schools. We made the long commute to Lackland for work from Cibolo for quality of life and it was the best decision we've ever made. We absolutely love our neighborhood. I got divorced in 2013 and my neighbors, knowing that I was now a single mother, have been wonderful. I love how safe my children and I feel here. The town is growing quickly and traffic is a nightmare on 35 as I work in the city BUT it is by far worth it for the peace of mind and quality of life that Cibolo provides. Lovely parks, plenty of community events, very family friendly. The police are exceptional in this community and do well to keep us all safe. We love loving in Cibolo and are very grateful to our city officials for making it a wonderful place to live!

I've lived in Cibolo my entire life, and it feels average in most ways. If you want the white-picket-fence suburb life, Cibolo is probably a good place for you! My biggest issue has been with my neighbors, and my HOA does nothing to enforce their rules (there are two houses on my street that are rented out to a group of pilot trainees every month despite that being against the HOA and my neighbor's dog never stops barking and they don't do anything about it). The schools could be improved, but they're pretty nice compared to a lot of other cities' schools.
I have lived in Cibolo since I was nine years old, but I feel like I have spent my whole life here. Everywhere you go, you are greeted with a smiling face. The schooling is amazing and the teachers are all welcoming and make it their mission to build very personal relationships with their students. Cibolo is also very close to a military base, so there is a very diverse culture. You have people who come from all over the world and different backgrounds which adds to the amazing experience. This is also amazing for school because you can make so many friends of different cultural backgrounds. Cibolo is also thought to be the little town outside of a big city. It is a very close knit town, that has many characteristics of the typical small town. We have our local grocery stores, daddy daughter dances, civic centers, all things that make up a loving town. The town of Cibolo also offers activities for the community, such as food drives and local fairs. Cibolo is a very special place.
