The Woodlands township began over 35 years ago as the vision of George P. Mitchell, founder of Mitchell Energy & Development Corp. Mitchell saw the need for a planned community where families and businesses could live in harmony with nature. The Woodlands Development Company guides the development of The Woodlands and keeps the vision intact.
The Woodlands is only 27 miles from downtown Houston and 16 miles from George Bush Intercontinental Airport.
The Woodlands lies within three school districts: Conroe Independent School District, Tomball Independent School District and Magnolia Independent School District.There are also a number of private schools including the John Cooper School, The Woodlands Christian Academy, The Woodlands Preparatory School, St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School, Espirit International School, and Cunae International School.
