Living in FriscoFrisco livability factors


2017 Best Dallas suburbs rank: 13

Click this best places to live in Dallas link for complete rankings, metrics and analysis methodology.

Frisco public schools have the fifteenth highest composite STAAR performance index of all Dallas suburbs and nine high schools that serve Frisco, Liberty High School, Wakeland High School, Centennial High School, Independence High School, Heritage High School, Hebron High School / Hebron Ninth Grade Center, Prosper High School and Frisco High School, rank among the top twenty-five 2018 best public high schools in the DFW metroplex. Frisco has experienced the eighth fastest population growth rate in the Dallas Fort Worth area over the past three years and its prevailing tax rate is in the bottom quartile of property tax rates in the Dallas area. While past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results, the rate of price increases of Frisco's MLS-listed single-family homes sold during the past three years was in the top quartile of home price appreciation of all Dallas area cities and towns. Some of the ways Frisco is different from and similar to other DFW cities and towns are shown on these best Dallas suburbs and about Dallas suburbs pages.

Frisco is located in central west Collin County and central east Denton County, approximately 28 miles north of downtown Dallas and 47 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Frisco's proximity to both the DFW International and Love Field airports, the Legacy and north Dallas business centers, and downtown Dallas is likely to make living in Frisco even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.

I frequently am asked by folks who have never bought a new construction home if they should be assisted by a buyer’s agent when selecting a builder and when negotiating their new home purchase. Most of the time my answers are "Yes" and "Yes."

Community amenities/activities

One of the outstanding things about living in Frisco is its exceptional community amenities.
