Since 1966, beginning as Wonderland Private School and expanding to Beatrice Mayes Institute, we have been partnering with families and the community laying strong educational foundations for hundreds of students in Houston and the surrounding areas. We are proud to be Houston’s oldest continuously running African American school, and grateful to have had the opportunity to touch so many lives.
This is an exciting time for us as we celebrate our past, embrace the present, and prepare for the future!
