The oldest lasting African-American School in Houston
Nurturing Minds, Inspiring Futures
Established in 1966 by forward-thinking educators Beatrice and Thomas Mayes, our mission has revolved around providing outstanding opportunities to empower African-American youngsters.
With a remarkable track record spanning more than five decades, our initiative has evolved from its origins in early childhood education to encompassing pre-k through 8th grade, Wonderland Private School and Beatrice Mayes Institute.
Wonderland started with educators Beatrice and Thomas Mayes providing special opportunities for local African-American youth.
