The district has two schools - McDade Elementary - that serves students in grades pre-kindergarten through 6th, and McDade High School, which is designated for grades 7-12.[1]

In 2009, the school district was rated "academically acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency.[2]

History[edit]

The district had its own high school until the 1920s after a fire destroyed its designated building.[3] Until circa 2016 the district sent its high school students to the Elgin Independent School District,[4] and to the Bastrop Independent School District.[5]

The district had 245 students enrolled in fall 2015.[3]

In the summer of 2016 the district had 330 students scheduled to attend beginning in the fall. The high school was scheduled to re-open, for the first time in many years, on August 23, 2016 with grades 7-10. As of 2016 the school uses the athletic property of TRIBE Consolidated Athletics as its home American football stadium since McDade ISD had not yet built its own football facilities.[3] Students may take university-level classes at Temple College. The first principal of McDade High is Paul Smith; As of 2016 he also serves as the high school's athletic director.[4]
