I have been living in Schertz for about 12 years now, and would recommend it for any family living on the Northeast side of San Antonio. It is right in the midst of "the Forum" which is full of local shopping centers and restaurants including; Target, Ross, Bed Bath & Beyond, Chili's, Chipoltle, Chick Fil A, Macoroni Grill, Kohl's, Gamestop, and many others. There, of course, in convenient location an HEB and a few other restaurants. Crime rates are extremely low in this area and there are plenty of schools ranging from daycare, to middle school, even to high schools. Very beautiful houses with kid friendly parks and great people!

Great Community. Safe place to raise a family with award winning and highly recommended schools ranging from Pre-K to High School nearby. Just a an excellent area to live in. Area offers opportunities to everyone as well. 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.
This is a small but expanding community, close to the wilderness but close enough to the main city of San Antonio and its' downtown area. Located close to Fort Sam Houston and Randolph Air Force base close to the heart of Military City USA. Border by other great small cities such as New Braunfels, Cibolo, St. Hedwig, and Garden Ridge. This City with small-town charm and big-city spunk is sure to please!
