One of the oldest continuously operated schools in Tulare County was started at this location as South Tule School, May 6. 1874. Citrus Elementary School founded in 1897, merged with South Tule in 1932. The La Motte School, founded in 1894, was annexed to the district in 1936. The original Citrus School site is now below the high water line of Lake Success. La Motte School, after being removed from its original site and renovated, is at the Tulare County Museum in Mooney Grove. These schools served the children of
area ranchers, also of miners who worked both the black granite quarry immediately to the south, and the magnesite mines across the south fork of the Tule River. During World War I a major
part of the nation's supply of magnesite, an industrial mineral essential to the war effort came from this area.
