Offering Houstonians a well-connected urban lifestyle along with the quiet comfort of a peaceful, suburban neighborhood is what Spring Branch is all about. Commute times to every major highway, including Beltway 8, Interstate 10, and Highway 290, are quick from the tranquility of an affordable ranch-style home with substantial yard space.
In the early part of the mid-19th century, Germans immigrants arrived in the Spring Branch area, seeking a better life. These early settlers operated dairy farms as their primary source of income. Throughout the 1950s as more homes were built, the area kept its rural flavor with many unpaved streets and horse stables. Today, the trees have continued to blossom while modern conveniences have transformed the community into a highly desirable neighborhood.
The majority of Spring Branch is zoned to the sought-after public schools of Spring Branch ISD. Multiple private schools with strong ratings also operate in the Spring Branch district, including The Awty International School and Houston Christian High School. A very popular high school community center is the Guthrie Center, which specializes in all arts and technical curriculum.
Alumni of Spring Branch ISD include computer company founder Michael Dell, NFL quarterback Andrew Luck, country music star Clint Black, and Cy Young winner Roger Clemens.
