Mayde Creek High School (MCHS) is a public high school located on Groschke Road in unincorporated Harris County, Texas and is part of the Katy Independent School District. Mayde Creek serves the portions of the city of Houston located in Katy ISD, including Addicks. Mayde Creek also serves many unincorporated communities in Harris County.
The school opened in 1984. When the school opened it had only two grades, eighth and ninth. By the 1986-1987 academic year it held 9th, 10th and 11th graders; the first class of students graduated in 1988.
The school building is divided into two sections, the smaller of which serves as the "Ninth Grade Center". There is a Performing Arts Center and a Natatorium.

While in the 2010-2011 season, the team fielded what many have called the best group of senior debaters since 2005. This group of seniors, under the coaching of communications teacher Greg McGee, have won nearly every tournament attended—with first place trophies from tournaments on the local, regional and national levels. These two seniors qualified for the Tournament of Champions and the National Forensics League Tournament in 2011.
