Bulverde refers to itself as “The Front Porch of the Texas Hill Country”. Probably you would refer to Bulverde as a “bedroom” community – hugging the north border of San Antonio which is just a short run a few miles south on US 281. Its location places it ideally in the country and near the big city so you get the best of both worlds – and a lower tax rate. Many people live in Bulverde and work in San Antonio. Many people refer to the area as Bulverde-Spring Branch because the area is intertwined, but Bulverde is actually an incorporated city.
There is a wide variety of homes available in Bulverde – from homes on acreage to ones in master planned communities.

Bulverde children are part of the Smithson Valley HS feeder district which is part of the Comal Independent School District (rated 5 stars in 2016 by Texas Smart Schools.) The good news is that once a child starts in one of the nine area elementary schools, and move up to one of the two middle schools, they will then attend Smithson Valley – home of the Rangers. Principal Michael Wahl – “Smithson Valley High School enjoys a rich history of excellence that is the result of the school’s staff and parents working in partnership to provide diverse experiences for their students.”
The Bulverde Spring Branch Library sits on a hill overlooking the Smithson Valley and besides books, also makes DVDs and special. programming available to the community. River Canyon Realty supports the BSB Library
