South Grand Prairie High School originally opened in the fall of 1969 with 448 students enrolled, 87 of which were seniors. The first campus was housed at what is now the ninth grade center.
In 1999, South Grand Prairie was named a "New American High School National Showcase Site" by the U. S. Department of Education.
In 2002, the front of the building was completely redesigned, and the SGPHS 9th Grade Campus was moved to an adjacent building (formerly Andrew Jackson Middle School) to the main campus. Since that time many career academy courses have been implemented and acknowledged.
In 2001-2002 and 2002-2003 the school received a "Recognized" status from the Texas Education Agency.
In the spring of 2007, SGP received a grant to become part of the SREB and the HSTW new Enhanced Schools Network. Over a two-year period, the administration and staff will work toward even more improvement via the 'best practices' recommended by this program. Specifically included is a concentrated literacy emphasis, which at SGP is referred to as the WRAD program - Writing and Reading across Disciplines.
