McWhorter Elementary School is named for B.O. McWhorter, who showed a strong interest in providing school facilities for the community. He was one of the leaders in an effort to secure property for the construction of a new school building after a fire destroyed the original frame structure. The new building provided eight classrooms in an 11,000-square-foot facility. After 1946, six classrooms were added. Thirteen classrooms, a cafeteria, a storage area and corridor space were added in 1955. During the 1970-1971 school year, a library was constructed.

The campus is wired for the Internet, and each classroom has at least one Macintosh and one Windows computer. Students also have access to two computer labs.

Special programs offered at McWhorter include Character Counts, Accelerated Reader, HOSTS (Helping One Student To Succeed) and Title I.

Family Fridays are part of the school's parent teacher association program. During monthly Family Friday programs, students and parents participate in activities and listen to speakers. Many parents are active in the parent teacher association.

Special events held during the school year include Author's Day, Cinco de Mayo, Fall Festival, Talent Show, Sixth Grade Banquet, Mighty Mustang and Honor Roll Assembly.
