I've lived in Prestonwood since birth and currently attend high school in the area. The public schools in this neighborhood are of very good quality; they're the reason that my parents chose to live in this neighborhood. Beyond that, it strikes me as a standard middle class Texas neighborhood.

Prestonwood has always been a loving and supportive community of neighbors, often brought together by local events at the elementary and middle school, as well as the nearby recreation center. The police who patrol the neighborhood are as nice as they come, and they always do their job well (Prestonwood has a very low crime rate).
Crime wise there isn't anything in my area, as it is the suburbs, there isn't any hard crime, some petty theft and other minor things here and there, and Drunk drivers, but that's about it. Police are visible as the police station is three streets down, my only concern is the lack of action when it comes to vandalism to private property
