Back to School in Mantua Pointe

With small town charm and big city access, Van Alstyne is the perfect place to raise your Texas clan, and there’s no better collection of family homes than those going up at Mantua Point. These two- to four-bedroom Risland Homes all sit on spacious lots and will be surrounded by a planned community that includes trails, a park, a community center with pools, and even future elementary and high schools. Until those institutions are complete, Mantua Point residents have access to the Van Alstyne Independent School District, featuring a number of highly rated schools within easy commuting distance.

Nearby Bob and Lola Sanford Elementary is a great place for families to start their children’s education off strong. With a low ratio of students to teachers and performance that puts their students in the top 12% of all Texas elementary schools , Bob and Lola Sanford Elementary provides an intimate public education experience aimed at guiding students and their parents safely through the early years. The district’s other elementary school, John and Nelda Partin Elementary , has a similarly stellar reputation and a track record of preparing students for their time at the highly ranked Van Alstyne Junior High .

Mantua Point families will also have the rare opportunity to send their children to one of Texas’s highest-ranked public high schools. Van Alstyne High School students perform in the top 5% of the state’s pupils and enjoy a 15:1 ratio of students to teachers, meaning that learners of all abilities have the resources they need to succeed. Of course, no small Texas town would be complete without its high school football team, and the Van Alstyne Panthers are no exception, consistently performing well in district- and state-level competition. Residents who can’t make a particular game can even catch all the Panthers football action via webcast .

The schools in the Van Alstyne ISD will serve Mantua Point residents until their own schools are built. These forthcoming schools will meet the growing need for public education in the burgeoning town, where residents rest their heads at night while commuting to nearby Dallas and Sherman during the day. Meanwhile, residents will be able to enjoy Mantua Point’s other amenities, including the clubhouse, community center, and park with a playground. So, head over to the Mantua Point page at Risland Homes to peruse the various floor plans and start planning your move to Van Alstyne today.
