Up until 2008, New Braunfels was one of the largest 4A high schools in Texas and now is classified as a 5A school by the UIL. In 2013, the school was rated "Met Standard" by the Texas Education Agency.[2]

The Haiti national football team temporarily held training sessions at New Braunfels High School's stadium, as the Stade Sylvio Cator, the team's home field, was being used as a tent city for victims of the earthquake in Haiti in January 2010.[3]
