The city of Mc Cool Junction, Nebraska is home to two schools: Mc Cool Junction Elementary School and McCool Junction Junior-Senior High School. While the high school has a strong performance history, ranking 38th out of 202 Nebraska high schools, the elementary school has seen a decline in its statewide ranking over the past few years, dropping from 173rd out of 442 Nebraska elementary schools in 2020-2021 to 257th out of 459 in 2022-2023.

In contrast, the high school performs significantly below the state average in 11th grade Science and 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts.

The schools in Mc Cool Junction are part of the Mc Cool Junction Public Schools district, which is ranked 190th out of 212 districts in Nebraska and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. This suggests the district as a whole may be struggling to provide high-quality education. Additionally, the high free and reduced lunch rates at both schools (over 30%) indicate a relatively low-income student population, which can present challenges in terms of educational resources and support.
