At the confluence of I-35 and Loop 410, the incorporated town of Windcrest
seamlessly blends the amenities of uptown San Antonio with the convenience and urban draw of the Eastern
I-35 corridor. Only a short drive from Randolph AFB and 15 miles east of the classic Alamo Heights area, Windcrest offers a unique take on the metro area.
In 1959, Windcrest was created to foster an authentic community where people could live and raise their families in a tranquil and safe environment. Today, this city has remained a small, comforting entity (with a population of just 5,364 residents) on the cusp of a growing metropolis.
Though indeed a small town, Windcrest is determined to provide its residents with all the amenities they could desire. The city maintains lush green spaces and community services like beautiful parks, gazebos, scenic walking trails, baseball fields, tranquil duck pond, 9-hole Golf Course, and swimming pool, and a famous holiday light display. The wide appeal of Windcrest has drawn Rackspace, one of the nation’s leading internet hosting firms, to anchor Windcrest as its main headquarters. Local and chain businesses mix to create a wide variety of options, from the local Farmers’ Market to Home Depot.
Adding to the appeal of the area, Windcrest is located within the coveted North East Independent School District (NEISD). Serving grades pre-k through 12th grade, this district has upheld a reputation for excellence, as shown in above-average graduation rates, superior test scores, and a wide variety of extracurriculars. Students in this neighborhood are generally zoned to Windcrest Elementary School, Edward H. White Middle School, and Roosevelt High School. Private area schools include The Academy of Creative Education.
