We wrote about the Wells Branch neighborhood over three years ago, and much has changed. So we thought it was a good time to revisit what makes this area of North Austin between I-35 and Mopac/Loop One and north of Wells Branch Parkway one of the best neighborhoods in Austin.
Wells Branch children attend either Pflugerville ISD or Round Rock ISD schools. Wells Branch Elementary School is in Round Rock ISD and is an Arts Integration Academy. Northwest Elementary School is in Pflugerville ISD and has several programs for kid enrichment including Math Pentathalon, National Geography Bee and more.
For middle school, Wells Branch students go on to Chisholm Trail Middle School or Deerpark Middle School, and then attend high school at McNeil High School. Students at Northwest Elementary go to Westview Middle School and Connally High School.
As far as restaurants, there are a few new(er) kids on the block since we did our dining feature as well. Garbo’s serves Maine lobster right here in Austin. Their lobster rolls have had people lining up at their food truck for years, but they finally have a brick and mortar in Wells Branch.
