Great Community. This little town is right in the heart of the area with easy access to shopping and dining. Safe place to raise a family with award winning and highly recommended schools ranging from Pre-K to High School nearby. Grew up in the area with my parents , and 10 years later have found myself being my family back to the area. Just a an excellent area to live in. Area offers opportunities to everyone as well, got my first job at 15 years old working in Schertz. Very safe and people friendly, and the law enforcement is out constantly making sure everyone is watching their speed! Which is awesome because you see many kids from elementary to high school walking home without parent supervision. Speaks volumes to how well of an area it is.

Schertz, Texas proves itself to be a unique small town caught in a state of liminality , as a passageway in-between the urban sprawl of the San Antonio Metropolitan Area and the isolated farmlands of Texas, as a town on the border of the Latino South Texas region and the primarily Germanic Hill Country, as a community in the middle of transitioning from rural small town to sprawling suburban satellite, and as a municipality on the border of three counties. As a result of this, the Schertz experience is a unique one. Every month it seems like a new cluster of tract housing has appeared in one corner, and a new school has popped up in another. Even my own school, Samuel Clemens High School, built in the 60s, has been in a constant state of change for almost the entire time I've attended, proving itself to be the perfect symbol of Schertz's liminality; It's original, mid-century design clashing with sleek, modern style of it's latest additions. The Schertz experience is one like no other
Schertz is a fast growing, multicultural population about 15 minutes outside of San Antonio. It's military population bring diversity and pride to our city. I've watched this city grow continuously since I moved there in 2010. School system is outstanding, which a good balance of emphasis on academics, sports, and extracurricular activities. The only downside of growth is the congestive build up on the highways. Other than that, it's a great city!
