The Woodlands has lost its glory - 8/28/2019
I moved to The Woodlands in 1993. Then it was a safe place to live and great place to raise children. Today however beautiful forest, restaurant's and shopping it's not the same. I moved away in 2008 returning in (job) 2015. My husband and I were just sick to see that The Woodlands has lost her glory. Its once beautiful fancy Mall, clean water and running boats had come to a nasty halt surrounded by big city garages, and the feeling of excitement in the air has gone. Greedy developers have destroyed this once perfectly exciting place to live. Still much natural beauty is here but the high crime that never existed is here to stay with the overly crowded and hostile attitudes its definitely not what Mitchell had planned Read More

Education is fouled - 9/27/2015
Some parents rave about the education system here but more and more parents are home schooling in our area. The ones that rave about it are the ones who are enjoying their child being forced to memorize lessons and the kids who can handle the high stress and all the extra home work that is given to the child, regardless if you know the work or not. We have several home schools opening in the recent years. The schools just pass children to the next level to keep their exemplary ratings. My son was 2 grade levels behind in L.A. and was just passed to the next grade level without any thought as to how much it was hurting him. Private schools in the area cost $20,000 + a year, only the wealthy can pay for that. Read More

The Woodlands, TX - 7/5/2014
Great place. Multitude of things to do here. We even have an iceskating rink during the Holidays. The Pavillion regularly attracts national talent and is second to one. Recently, I've seen James Taylor and Van Morrison there. Bruce Springsteen was there in May ... it was his only stop in Texas. Terrific restaurants. Over 100 miles of hike and bike trails. Stable housing market and great schools. This is a great place to live -- clearly the top choice for the Houston area. Exxon Mobile apparently thinks so as it is moving its operational headquarters here. Many other top companies are headquartered here, including Chicago Bridge and Iron, US Oncology, Anadarko Petroleum and Huntsman Read More

Wonderful Woodlands - 9/11/2013
The Woodlands is not Conroe. Clear Lake is over an hour away. The Woodlands is a community itself, full of beautiful neighborhoods, every kind of shopping, businesses big and small. It is pet friendly, offers walking paths, marathons, Iron Man Competitions, professional golf tournaments, water sports and an outdoor pavilion with shows ALL the time. Seriously! What will get you though are allergies and HOA fees. Don't forget about the heat, humidity and electric bills. Aside from those nuisances it is really a nice place to be. Read More

what is the quality of life - 1/31/2012
do the people in The Woodlands tend to complain about their neighbors and call the police for minor things a lot? We lived in El Lago (near Clear Lake) and the people seemed like they were very paranoid, even though crime was nonexistent. They reported anything they did not like to the police even if it was not in code violation. We are considering The Woodlands but don't want to be in a neighborhood like El Lago. We are active and don't have kids. We are also considering Montrose or The Heights but property is very expensive for what you get. We grew up in suburbs and like the big Read More

RE: Not what it seems - 3/30/2010
I agree with John, and as a graduate of Conroe High School I would say I have an even more personal experience especially with that school. Whites are the majority there however I will say there are probably more minorities at Conroe High than many of the other high schools in the district, but it was recently made a Recognized High School. I also graduated Class of 09' so this not some memories of a high school long ago. I heard something about a bible class being offered at Conroe High the year I was leaving, but it was a elective, and it focused on the Writing strategies of the Authors of the bible. You can not find a college that does not offer something along the same line. It is most certainly not something to convert kids. The Woodlands is a great place, I lived in River Plantation for quite some time and it is on Highway 45 between Conroe and The Woodlands. Awesome place with a beautiful golf course.  Read More
