School History

Chisholm Trail Elementary opened it's doors in 1987. At that time it was an EE, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades campus. 
Tenderfoot Primary opened it's doors in    . At that time Sanger ISD moved Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten from Chisholm Trail to Tenderfoot Primary. CTE (Chisholm Trail) became a 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade campus.
Sanger continued to grow so a second Elementary campus was built and Sanger ISD started Attendance Zones. Butterfield Elementary School opened it's doors in 2008. Because of the Attendance zones, Sanger ISD did some campus shifts.
Butterfield Elementary (BES) became a Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 1st thru 5th grade campus. So, Tenderfoot Primary closed and the Pre-Kindergarten was moved to BES and Kindergarten was moved back to CTE. CTE's 3rd grade was moved to Clear Creek Intermediate which became a 3rd, 4th and 5th grade campus. CTE was made a Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade campus.
At present day CTE is still a Kindergarten thru 2nd grade campus. We house an average of 320-350 students.
