Cimarron is located in the Canutillo Independent School District (CISD), which has a long history in education in the Rio Grande Valley. The first community school was built in 1911 and the district was incorporated 1959.

Canutillo ISD has six elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school. The district also has early college and alternative education programs. In 2011, CISD recognized a need to establish a new school to meet the needs of the growing district and selected Cimarron as the location for its brand new state of the art pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade school.

The new school opened in the heart of Cimarron in the fall of 2015 and includes 31 classrooms, a library, a kitchen, two multi-purpose gyms/cafeterias, two playgrounds and exterior basketball courts.
