After the annexation of several school districts, ending with the Manvel Independent School District in 1973, Alvin High School served the city of Manvel, the town of Iowa Colony, portions of the city of Pearland (including the Brazoria County portion of Shadow Creek Ranch), and additional portions of unincorporated Brazoria County (including Rosharon) until the opening of Manvel High School.
