Katy ISD’s McElwain Elementary, which opened onsite in Elyson in 2020, is too new to rank, but given the strong parent involvement and innovative programs at this new campus, we are very optimistic about its future ranking.

Rounding out our educational offerings for residents of all ages, Elyson also has two private preschools onsite, Kiddie Academy and Magnolia Prep Academy.
