Powell Point Elementary School

Powell Point is an Unincorporated community in Fort Bend County, Texas, United States.

The area is named after Elizabeth Powell, who received the original land grant there from the Mexican Government in 1831.

Education[edit]

Powell Point is served by the Lamar Consolidated Independent School District. Students are zoned to Beasley Elementary School in Beasley, Wessendorff Middle School, Lamar Junior High School, and Lamar Consolidated High School.[1]

Previously, Kendleton Independent School District operated Powell Point Elementary School in the community and served elementary school residents.[citation needed] As a result of the closure, students at Powell Point were rezoned to Beasley and Wessendorf. LCISD, for a two-year period, will operate its head start program at Powell Point.[2]
