Relocating to Dallas w/ family of 3 boys (11,8,5yo

I'd like to inquire if anyone has recommendations for school/housing for me and my family. My husband and I have 3 boys: 11, 8 and 5 year olds. I will be working either from the Accenture Office in Irving TX or at a client site in downtown Dallas.

I will possibly relocate in May/June.

Possible considerations:
1. Good schools for the kids (middle school and elementary schools). My kids play soccer and was part of their school's varsity team here in the Philippines, so a school with a good sports program is a plus.
2. Has commuting options to either Irving or downtown Dallas. Dart accessibility is a plus!
3. Home location that will be near my kids school
4. We are into outdoors so having parks/golf courses would be a plus too!

Based on what I've read so far, good options are: Uptown, Coppell, Richardson, Plano. Hesitant about Highland or University park as I read that kids have a tendency to be "brats" here.

Looking forward to your suggestions!
