Firethorne is a newer master-planned community located conveniently in the western part of the Katy area, just off of the 1463 highway south of I10. This community, although south of I10, is currently zoned to Katy High School in the acclaimed Katy Independent School District. Firethorne gained momentum in the beginning stages of its existence due to a KISD rezoning of the Williamsburg Settlement neighborhood on the North side of I10. Many of the residents of that neighborhood were die-hard Katy football fans and decided to move when their community was rezoned to Morton Ranch High School, a newer school in Katy. AT that time, Firethorne offered newer homes for sale and a Katy High School Attendance Zone.

It does need to be pointed out that there are basically three parts to Firethorne. The Lamar CISD side in the far west (back) area of Firethorne, the Katy side west of 1463, and then the east side of Firethorne. The East side is located within Katy ISD as well but offers some larger home and lot options as well as lake lots for residents to enjoy. Having said all of this, Firethorne is all one community though with so much to offer.
Firethorne also provides many wonderful amenities to its residents. The Firethorne HOA fees cover maintenance of the pools, lakes, walking trails and other common areas. There is also a wonderful nature and wildlife reserve in Firethorne.
Being that Firethorne is a master-planned community in Katy and Fulshear and is growing quickly, it would be difficult to name all of the possible schools that your children may be zoned to without knowing in which area of Firethorne your new home will be. The west part of Firethorne is in the Lamar CISD and would be zoned to Huggins Elementary School, either Briscoe Junior High or Wertheimer Junior High School and beginning in 2016-2017, the new Fulshear High School. However, the eastern and older parts are located in Katy ISD. You can look at Wolman Elementary School, Woodcreek Junior High School and Katy High School to get an idea of how great the school system is in Firethorne. You will be zoned to one of these schools, and their feeder junior highs and elementary schools, if you move to Firethorne until new schools open.
