Tomball High School is set to move to Conference 6A for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 school years, bringing the two Tomball ISD high schools back into the same conference, according to cutoff numbers released Dec. 3 by the University Interscholastic League in a news release.

Preliminary enrollment figures indicate 2,448 students are enrolled at Tomball High School, up from the 1,933 students enrolled ahead of the UIL's 2018-20 realignment, according to information from the UIL. According to the new cutoff numbers, Conference 6A includes schools with at least 2,220 students. Previously, Conference 6A featured schools with at least 2,190 students, according to UIL information.

The conference cutoff numbers released in December show the enrollment range for the six conferences—1A through 6A, according to the release. Preliminary enrollment figures, submitted by school districts, are based on the school's enrollment on Oct. 25, according to the release.

Enrollment ranges include:

  • Conference 1A: schools enrolling fewer than 105 students

  • Conference 2A: schools enrolling 105-229 students

  • Conference 3A: schools enrolling 230-514 students

  • Conference 4A: schools enrolling 515-1,209 students

  • Conference 5A: schools enrolling 1,210-2,219 students

  • Conference 6A: schools enrolling 2,220 or more students


While Tomball High School is set to move to Conference 6A, Tomball Memorial High School is anticipated to remain in Conference 6A. The school's preliminary enrollment indicates 2,543.5 students—based on the UIL formula for calculating enrollment—which is up from 2,247 students enrolled ahead of the 2018 realignment, according to UIL information. Tomball Memorial moved from Conference 5A to Conference 6A for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 school years, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.

Preliminary enrollment figures for Magnolia High School indicate the campus will remain in Conference 5A with an enrollment of 2,001 students. Similarly, Magnolia West High School has a preliminary enrollment of 2,107 students and is expected to remain in Conference 5A for school years 2020-21 and 2021-22, according to UIL information. The campuses enrolled 1,990 students and 2,107 students, respectively, ahead of the 2018 conference reclassification.


According to the release, the 2020-22 alignments for basketball, football and volleyball will be released Feb. 3. District alignments for other activities will be released seasonally.
