Spring Independent School District operates schools in the area.
In the 1900s one school had 30 children taught by one teacher. The building was donated by a man named Mr. Harrell. A fire burned the building, and men from Spring helped rebuild the school. In 1900 a one room school opened on the Bender Estate. One year later, it moved to Spring.
