Highland Village, Texas, located in Denton County, one of the fastest growing counties in Texas, has committed to the development of a quality community with a top-ranked educational system, upper-income family-oriented environment, and the planned preservation of open space throughout a lakefront community. When asked how residents would describe Highland Village, they cite the feeling of community, a connection to the outdoors and sense of security and safety.
With its rolling, wooded terrain, it's no wonder that the November 1995 issue of D Magazine named Highland Village the third best place to live of the top ten suburbs in the DFW Metroplex.
Originally a weekend getaway for Dallas residents, Highland Village was incorporated in 1963 when about 100 owners of the homes built on the along the south shore of Lake Lewisville decided to move there permanently. Now a thriving upscale community, this south Denton County town recently was recognized for the ninth consecutive year by the Texas Department of Public Safety as the safest city in north Texas and is ranked as one of the best places to buy a home in the DFW Metroplex.
Highland Village is still an idea place for the DFW Metroplex workforce that wants to get away from it all in a lake resort-like setting. Area recreational facilities include Lake Lewisville, Copperas Branch Park, Unity Park, Kids Kastle, a community-built park and several other neighborhood parks made up of approximately 140 acres. In spite of its hideaway appeal, Highland Village is a mere 15 minutes from DFW Airport.
The Lewisville Independent School District schools attended by Highland Village students are among the best in the DFW Metroplex. District and campus information for other DFW Metroplex school districts is available by going to our school information page.
