Stephenville High School, or SHS is a 3A public high school located in Stephenville, Texas (USA). It is part of the Stephenville Independent School District located in central Erath County. In 2011, the school was rated "Academically Acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency.
The Stephenville Yellow Jackets compete in the following sports:
Cross Country, Volleyball, Football, Basketball, Powerlifting, Soccer, Golf, Tennis, Track, Softball & Baseball
SHS has been one of the most successful football programs in the state of Texas in recent years. Though it did not make the playoffs from 1952 to 1989, the arrival of Art Briles helped turn the program around. Under Briles, the Yellow Jackets advanced to the playoffs from 1989 until his departure after the 1999 season, winning four state titles (1993, 1994, 1998, 1999) along the way. The 1998 team posted a then national record 8,650 yards of total offense and still holds the third and fourth positions on the national all-time list. Since Briles left for the collegiate ranks, Stephenville has continued to make the playoffs (with the exception of 2003) Stephenville won their 5th state title in 2012 under head coach Joseph Gillespie (a former player and coach under Art Briles).
