Magnolia ISD buys land in Kresston for elementary school

by Emily Marek

Magnolia Independent School District (ISD) purchased 15.7 acres of land in Kresston for a new elementary school, using funds from the November 2022 bond referendum. Design and construction are dependent on the results of the new bond election.

“We look forward to the continued partnership with Kresston and Johnson Development,” Erich Morris, assistant superintendent of operations for Magnolia ISD, said in a press release. “Having purchased land for a future school site in the development puts [Magnolia ISD] in a position to be prepared for the growth in Kresston and along the FM1486 corridor.”

“This school site is located in the Heartland District within Kresston, one of two districts currently under development in the community,” said Stephen Barrera, vice president and general manager of Kresston. “Part of Kresston’s appeal is the Magnolia school district, which is highly regarded for its small-town approach and big-city innovations when it comes to extracurricular opportunities.”
