Located within the city limits of Thrall, the District is a central entity of a family-oriented community with a population of approximately 850. The City of Thrall was founded in 1876 as a railroad station on the International-Great Northern line and was first called Stiles Switch. The Stiles School was opened in the 1880's. When a post office-general store was opened in 1901, the name Thrall was chosen for the community, after Homer S. Thrall, a Methodist minister. In 1908 Stiles School was moved to a new larger building and renamed Thrall School. Thrall ISD was established in 1908.
