Located just 30 miles north of downtown Dallas, McKinney is a picturesque city with a small town feel.  However, McKinney has a population of nearly 132,000 and is one of the fastest growing cities in the US.  Graduating its first class in 1889, McKinney High School is the original of 3 public high schools in McKinney and serves diverse student population of approximately 2,700 students in grades 9-12.

The building underwent a full renovation during the summer of 2013 updating the building facade, infrastructure, and technology in order to better reflect the quality of education that takes place within the building.


The school year is divided into two semesters, each consisting of two 9-week grading periods. Each academic day is comprised of seven 50-minute class periods.  MHS offers a variety of courses, detailed in the MISD Academic Planning Guide.
