Opportunities for Students

  • Creating Student Success and Opportunity In Waxahachie ISD


    A second comprehensive high school in Waxahachie ISD will provide more students with opportunities to participate in Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs, academic extracurricular programs, fine arts, and athletics.

    • Approximately 75% of current WHS students participate in at least one extracurricular activity.
    • There are a limited number of spots available for student participation in these programs, no matter how large or small the school is.  Opening a second comprehensive high school will effectively double the number of spots available for student participation.
    • CTE programs prepare students for college and career opportunities and offer them the training to become certified in a number of different areas, such as:
      • Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)
      • Pharmacy Technician
      • Welding
      • Educational Aide
      • Cosmetology
