The Heights is one of the oldest sections of Houston. Studewood is a part of Greater Heights, but it leaves that traditional Heights feel, in that it looks a little newer. The trees look younger and the houses look a little newer. They are still small, but these are ranch-style homes. The whole feel of this part of the neighborhood is a lot more residential than the driving down Heights Blvd. will ever make you feel. But, even though it lacks the same look as your standard Heights street, there is still the same Heights attitude. Liberal, aware of the history of the area, and not without a sense of duty to maintain that attitude, people in this area are very friendly and like to have fun. The area draws creative types to its borders. With many educated, aware people living in the area, you would think the schools would be held to a high standard, but the truth is that the high school in the area still feeds into HISD and the dropout rate is quite high. But, there are many private schools in the area and River Oaks that provide superior education. There are also plenty of parks and opportunities for recreation in the area. Stude Park is at the southeast end of the neighborhood close to I-10. There are also 3 other parks more centrally located in the Heights. Depending on what part of the Heights you live in, the price of your residence will vary, but Studewood is among the most affordable places in the Heights.
