About Us

Brief History

We are proudly celebrating 42 years of teaching children from Mission and surrounding communities. The original 1976 founders were Mr. and Mrs. Brad Findley and Dr. and Mrs. Ernest Hienze. The first school was housed in the First Baptist Church and as it grew, later moved to First Presbyterian Church and St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Mission. The family of Norma and Russell Birdwell of Mission generously donated five acres of land and with a donation of $1,000.00 (profits from student fundraiser), the current new campus became a reality. The dedication was held on Sunday, October 2, 1983. Mary Lou Sanchez was the first preschool teacher and still teaches PK-4’s!
