Forney High School is a public secondary school located in Forney, Texas, United States and is one of two high schools in the Forney Independent School District which serves Forney, Talty, the small Kaufman County portion of Mesquite, and some surrounding unincorporated areas of Kaufman County. Because of immense growth over the past years, a bond was approved to begin construction of a second high school in May 2007. US Hwy 80 serves as the boundary between the two high schools. Beginning in 2009, North Forney High School only housed freshmen and sophomores so the first graduating class will be in 2012. In 2011, the school was rated "Academically Acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency.
FHS has several award-winning organizations including: Track and Field, Powerlifting, Football, Drill Team, UIL Academic teams, Special Olympics teams, Band, and Choir. City Bank Stadium is one of the few high school football stadiums in the country with privately owned naming rights. FHS varsity football, soccer, and track compete in the stadium. The school is also home to the Forney marching band, Espirit de Corps, which is ranked among the top ten bands in the state as well as the award winning, national champion Highstepper drill team.
 School uniforms
The Texas Education Agency specified that the parental guardians of students zoned to a school with uniforms may apply for a waiver to opt-out of the uniform policy. Parents must provide legitimate reasons that are usually religious or philosophical in nature.
Forney High School has opt-out days periodically throughout the course of the year to celebrate special occasions, home game days, etc.
