History[edit]

In 2007 Wylie East High School opened for the 2007-2008 school year. In the school's first year it served solely the ninth grade students. However the district has previously promised that the class of 2011 (the school's first class) will go to the Wylie High School to graduate. The residents were asked to present suggestion at board meetings in late 2007. Wylie East will become a 9-12 school with Class of 2012 being the first class to graduate after the district voted to go with multiple 9-12 campuses in January 2008. Wylie East began the 2009-2010 school year with freshman and sophomores and will add a grade until 2012.
