The Axtell Independent School District serves area students. The school mascot is a Longhorn and school colors are red and white. The district has two campuses: an Elementary School located on Longhorn Parkway and the Junior and Senior High School located at North 5th Street and Ottawa Street.
In 2010, Axtell was reclassified as a 2A school. The student population averages 200 students, often causing the district's classification to fluctuate between 1A and 2A.
Axtell was established in the early 1880s as a rail stop along the historic Cotton Belt Route between Corsicana and Waco during the Golden Era of Railroad expansion. The town was granted a post office in 1882 and named in honor of a railroad officer.
