- Suburb of San Antonio, TX
Rating 4.21 out of 5 132 reviews
I love how it is a small quiet suburb that is perfect for raising a family. The school system is incredible for all ages of children. It is remote enough to enjoy the quiet yet close enough to San Antonio to enjoy the city life. It is also great for those who enjoy the outdoors. There are numerous camping, hiking, fishing, and tubing areas within an hour of the city.
I have lived in this town for 30 years and I love it. My grandma moved here in 1972 and has lived in the same house since. It is a very quiet and safe town. People are friendly.
What I like about Schertz, TX is how quiet and safe my neighborhood is and how essentials like grocery stores are just a couple minutes away by car. The only change I would like to see would be more new buildings/restaurants in or around Schertz.
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!
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!
It's a suburb near the city of San Antonio and New Braunfels. Peaceful and mostly surrounded by former military officers and servicemen. The area is a big family and sports based community, especially when the high schools have their town rivalries.
Schertz is a small town that grows each year but you will always know your neighbor. There are a lot of good schools in Schertz.
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.
Family friendly community with great ties to the military community. They have plenty of parks for children to play.
Schertz has a small town feel with the convenience of a big city. The city itself sits nestled in between 3-4 smaller towns. It is only about a 45 minute drive to downtown San Antonio, 2 hour drive to Corpus Christi, and a 2 hour drive to downtown Austin. Its a perfect place for the commuter.
Great community with a lot of support and family activities. There is always something to do at the local parks, or community centers.
I like that Schertz is a very family city. Although there are quite a bit of people, wherever you go, you'll probably see someone familiar. There are many things in Schertz, to restaurants, to shops, or attractions. It is not a very big city, but it is home to a lot of people. Although there is diversity, I feel there could be more.
Schertz is a place where diversity and community work hand in hand with one another to create a beautiful city.
Schertz is a welcoming town with wonderful people and a laid back atmosphere. It has a small-town feel but is close enough to urban San Antonio that many people are open-minded and less conservative than one might expect.
Schertz has a lot to offer. There are great schools and easy access to a ton of places to go while still being quiet. I've lived here my entire life, and will always love it.
It's a very included community. The school systems here are great and offer many opportunities to grow. I feel very at home here with all of my friends and family. if I could move anywhere else I wouldn't even if anyone offered me a 1,000 dollars!
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
