Southlake is a very community oriented town. People are very warm and welcoming. The school system is the the top ranks of Texas.
While an extremely nice area on the outside, it is terrible on the inside. Yes, the houses are nice and the schools are supposedly excellent. However, the people are judgmental and materialistic. The only thing the school district cares about is sports- I was once told by a teacher that “if we don’t bring a championship that we aren’t keeping the tradition alive.” It was a common occurance to have parents complete homework for kids. Additionally, the district has little to no support for learning differences kids like my brother. The town’s reputation in surrounding cities was trashy. There were so many kids that got bullied in these schools, which crazily enough was not just a part of growing up. I spoke to a counselor at the district and she revealed that kids in Southlake had more depression and drug issues than most places she had seen. Peer pressure, bullying, and snobbery also are second nature to the people of this town.
Really great school district with challenging courses that prepare you for college. Residents are friendly, but there is an overwhelming emphasis on perfection. There's a pressure to always be smiling and to make your life seem perfect. There also are not too many events that occur, so it would be nice to see more cultural and family events. This suburb is also very expensive and continues to grow.

Southlake and not "South Lake" is a small city in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. It has a competitive school district and a median household income of $193,000 (2016). There are numerous shops, restaurants, and activities throughout the area. It is a family-friendly city and very well maintained.
Southlake has got great shopping, it's safe and family-friendly. Southlake is centrally located to Fort Worth and Dallas. It's minutes from a major airport but not so close that you hear planes all night long. The dining options are endless as well as the shopping options. There are also many great parks to spend time in.
Love the people and community of Southlake. The people here are like no other and you'll feel the positive energy the minute you find yourself at any event the city often hosts. It is by far the most comfortable place I have ever been in terms of safety as well.
As a former student, I would like to hear that the high school(9-10) has changed in certain ways. The high school while I was there was my least favorite 2 years of high school and my overall 6 years of schooling in Southlake.
Its a great town! The people can be very nice and the overall feel is great. The school district is amazing and the teachers are so helpful. Southlake town square has lots of variety when is comes to food and shopping. Right across from town square is park village. There are many popular stores in town square and popular restaurants in park village. Southlake is definitely a town to experience.
I have lived in Southlake for about 15 years and have absolutely loved it! It's a suburb of Dallas and has a super cute and homey feel. Southlake is pretty much middle-upper class living. The city has a town square which is the center of all the action in Southlake. The only movie theatre in South lake is in town square, so if course it's busy. Southlake is a fun environment and atmosphere. The city hosts annual events such as art in the square, Octoberfest, the Christmas lighting, 4th of July, and more. I would like to see more diversity in Southlake, but otherwise, its an amazing place to live.
I love my community I live in! The schools are wonderful, and there are always activities to do in my town!
Southlake attracts the affluent from not only DFW, but also all over Texas and the country. It is a city of high-achievers especially corporate executives, doctors, lawyers, and small business owners. Their children in turn are driven to excel. It has an unbelievable standard of living, and has all the amenities within. If that is not enough, the country's #9 and #16 largest cities are just 25 minutes away.
Southlake is a beautiful town that is right outside of Dallas. It has all you could ever need, you barely have to leave to go to Dallas. It has just the right amount of good food, shopping, and entertainment in the town square. The public schools are as good as any private school in Dallas as well.
I live on the edge of Southlake and Grapevine, though I go to Southlake schools and spend most of my time in Southlake. It is a rapidly growing city with many business opportunities everywhere you look.
Excellent neighborhood for families, the new homes are very good but the prices are climbing fast. The schools have consistently had great ratings and have been really good to go thru. Overall a good neighborhood for families looking to move into the dallas Fort Worth area. The commute to DFW is really fast and takes about 15 mins at anytime of the day.
The shops and town center is really very well planned and built. New shops and restaurants are coming in every month. Fast growing business environment with westlake hosting some good large companies.
Southlake is a beautiful little town in the DFW are. The city offers a lot of activities to do with family and friends for every time of the year. It also has many differents restaurants, parks for go with family and really nice stores at Southlake Town Square.
Southlake is a wonderful city with very good people. All setting out for the bettering of themselves.
Southlake is a wonderful place to live. It is immensely safe and provides luxurious ammenities for the families and individuals. It is a very family friendly place to live.

I enjoyed the upscale amenities that decorate the fine shops at the square and line every street. I would like to see a change in how "outsiders" are treated by the locals, I would like to see more acceptance of non-Southlake residents by Southlake residents
Incredible pretty place to live, especially with Southlake Town Square having all these shops. Unfortunately the town square doesn't have a lot of clothing places but there are many food options.
By far the best place to live if you can. Perfect location to major cities, airports and attractions. The shopping and food around the area are amazing.
