Profile of Education in the Magnolia Community since 1893
Magnolia opened doors to educate children of this community around 1893. The town was actually called “Mink” at that time. By 1896 there were four schools within a radius of five miles. The schools were consolidated around 1901. In 1911 construction started on the first high school, consisting of nine grades in a four-room school building located in town just northwest on FM 1488. This building opened in January of 1912 and was known as the Magnolia Common School District #6. A county superintendent was in charge of the school. The graduating class of 1912 consisted of six students.
By 1921, the district’s enrollment reached 150 students. In 1937, that campus was moved into a new building at the present location of the current MJH Sixth Grade Campus on Magnolia Blvd. Land was purchased in 1939 to build another school, George W. Carver School. That campus, after several renovations and additions, is now Williams Elementary School.
Magnolia became an “independent school district” in 1950. During the next 50 years, several campuses were added to serve the community. Those campuses are as follows:
Rapid community growth in this part of Montgomery County has brought increased student enrollment in Magnolia ISD. During a three year period of time (2000-2002), the district opened eight new campuses to meet those needs. The additions were as follows:
Magnolia ISD is one of the fastest growing districts in the state of Texas. The district has approximately 1600 employees. In 1993-94, there were 4,021 students. In the 2014-2015 school year, there were 12,458 students in the district. The fast growth of the district has been met with excellent facilities and with increased community support.
