The first Los Reyes Elementary School was founded in 1871 and was used to educate the children of the Helotes area and the outlying ranches. It was located in the Morales Farm. The school closed, and the second Los Reyes School opened in 1912 on Frank Madla’s house. There was no electricity or running water, so students came to school on foot or on horseback. The 3rd Los Reyes Elementary School opened in about 1918 and relocated to the current site of Helotes Elementary in 1939. Students walked along Bandera Road as the small ranch community continued to grow.
The Northside Independent School District insists that children come first. The goal of the district is to empower each student to aspire for personal achievement and to ensure that all students learn to work, participate and succeed as responsible individuals in an ever-changing world.
