About Our School

  • McMath Middle School was established in 1998 and is named after Carroll McMath, a former band director at Denton High School who promoted music education throughout the state. Mr. McMath was also active in the community and was inducted into the Texas Band Directors Hall of Fame in 1992.

    McMath is known for its commitment to education and students and staff that are committed to making things better in and out of the classroom. From a gardening club that helps beautify the school grounds to a student-run, non-profit organization (Team Jump Start) that has raised funds for student scholarships, McMath students enjoy getting involved.

    McMath students, family and staff believe they are “known by the tracks they leave” so it’s a mission to leave an imprint in academics, social clubs and extra-curricular activities. Students at McMath can enroll in gifted and talented courses, career and technology courses, and study a foreign language or career in engineering.

    The school also offers band, choir, orchestra, art, cheerleading and a variety of athletics options: football, volleyball, tennis, boys and girls basketball and boys and girls track. In addition, McMath has nationally-recognized programs like National Junior Honor Society, Student Council and numerous community-oriented clubs to help students adapt and socialize together.

    McMath was the third middle school built in the district and is centrally located in Denton. The school received its most recent renovation in 2020.
