Southlake Schools & Area Colleges
Southlake's student population is served by the schools of the Carroll Independent School District, a 100% TEA Exemplary-rated district. The district is comprised of five elementary schools (Carroll, Old Union, Walnut Grove, Johnson, and Rockenbaugh), two intermediate schools (Durham and Eubanks), two middle schools (Carroll and Dawson), and two high schools (Carroll High School, serving grades 9 and 10, and Carroll Sr. High School, serving grades 11 and 12). The student athletics program is one of the best in the county. Southlake also has one private school within the community: The Clariden School.
Parts of the city that fall into Denton County are served by three additional districts: Northwest Independent School District, Keller Independent School District, and Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District.
For higher education, students can commute to Irving, home to North Lake College and University of Dallas. Dallas is home to Dallas Baptist University and Mountain View College, while Fort Worth is home to Texas Christian University. The University of Texas at Arlington is also located nearby, as is Brookhaven College in Farmers Branch.
Southlake is proud to provide a plethora of fun events and activities, keeping residents' calendars booked throughout the year. The winter months promise holiday fun, with kids of all ages getting a chance to tell Santa Claus what they'd like for Christmas, or for families to come out and be amazed as the community Christmas tree is lit during the Home for the Holidays Tree Lighting event. Springtime offers Easter Egg Hunts, Southlake Summer Kickoff, the annual Burning Bubba Event, and the Art in the Square Festival, while summer is a time for barbeques and fireworks at the Stars & Stripes Southlake event, Friday Night Drags, Showcase in the Square, and Reunion Lawn Parties. Residents look forward to Oktoberfest Southlake once fall rolls around the corner.
