Located on the eastern cusp of the San Antonio metro area, Cibolo offers the best of both worlds: a charming small town reaping the benefits of big-city amenities. Cibolo’s modest but growing population of 25,403 is made up of residents and families drawn to a simpler way of life. A charming city that boasts a “country-style” way of life, Cibolo is truly a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family.
Due to its convenient placement on I-35, Cibolo is just minutes away from both the bustling city of San Antonio and the serene Texas Hill Country. To the north, the Hill Country landscape provides gorgeous views and unique attractions like the Natural Bridge Caverns or the horse races at Retama Park. Area parks and the nearby Warbler Woods Bird Sanctuary also ensure that residents have green space readily available.
The area is also home to premier shopping: just a few miles away, The Forum at Olympia Parkway (one of the largest shopping centers in Texas) offers a vast array of shopping and premier restaurants, featuring everything from department stores to electronics to boutiques. To the north, Bracken Village boasts a unique collection of boutiques and gift shops.
Adding to the appeal of Cibolo are excellent area schools, anchored by the Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District. Serving grades pre-k through 12th grade, the district is known for its academic excellence, superior administration, and above-average graduation rates. Students in Cibolo are generally zoned to Dobie Junior High School, Wiederstein Elementary, Watts Elementary, Barbar C Jordan Intermediate School, Elaine S Schlather Intermediate School, and Byron P Steele II High School. Nearby private institutions include the Allison Steele Enhanced Learning Center.
Due to Cibolo’s recent growth, many properties have been built since 2000, reflecting recent popular architectural styles and trends. Area neighborhoods generally offer 3-5 bedroom homes with spacious backyards, large windows, generous garages, and family-oriented amenities. Residents tend to enjoy close ties with neighbors and friends, often expressing a sense of stability and safety. Currently, the median listing price in Cibolo is $255,000, and the price per square foot rests at $99, though homes can range anywhere from affordable to luxury.
