to BE.

Although I cannot answer your specific question - it is always a good idea to let us know what visas your family are moving on, since it frequently informs the answers we give...

....so, which ones?

Hi, I live just to the west of Fort Worth, in Aledo where my kids have been to school...it's a great school district.
I also have friends who have had and do have children in Tanglewood and have been very pleased with the school.

We've lived in Texas for nearly 6 years and were in Michigan for 7 years before that.
I love it here.
There are quite a few Brits here due to the oil and gas industry and also the F35 fighter plane project at Lockheed. Many of us meet up regularly for a chat and a coffee. I'll send you a private message with my email.

Ahh, the Lockheed plant in White Settlement, TX. Nice folks but don't talk about politics or religion. I think I was the only socialist, aetheist in the entire place.
