Anna ISD's original colors were Blue and Gold until the 1950s, when TCU donated old uniforms to AHS.
Upon the closure of Westminster ISD the 1989-1990 school year, students from Westminster were annexed into Anna and Van Alstyne ISDs. Conversely, prior to the 2004-2005 school year Melissa ISD only educated students through grade 8, so students in that district went to high school at either McKinney High School (before Fall 2000), McKinney North High School (after Fall 2000) or Anna High School.
Due to the district's location along U.S. 75, it has outgrown several schools in its history.
1985- The current Administration Building opened as Anna High School.
1973- The northwest building of the Early Childhood Center opened as a K-8 campus.
1988- The Special Programs Center opened as Anna High School.
1994- The southwest building of the Early Childhood Center opened as a K-5 campus.
1995- The southeast building, a gymnasium, of the Early Childhood Center opened for grades K-8.
1996- The northeast building of the Early Childhood Center opened housing PK and the PK-8 cafetorium.
2000- The current Anna Middle School opened as Anna High School. AMS moved to the 1988 facility, while Anna Elementary School took over the former middle school building.
2005- Joe K. Bryant Elementary opened as a 1-4 campus. Central Campus opened housing PK-K and 5-6 at the current ECC campus.
2007- Sue E. Rattan Elementary opened, with both elementary schools housing PK-5, closing Central Campus.
2011- The current Anna High School opened as a 9-12 campus. AMS moved to its current building and the Special Programs Center is created in its current home.
2013- The Early Childhood Center opened as a PK-K campus, with both elementary schools housing grades 1-5.
2017- Judith L. Harlow Elementary will open at the ECC site in August, replacing the ECC. All 3 elementary schools will revert back to housing grades PK-5.
2018- Harlow Elementary will move into its new, permanent school building in January. The former ECC campus will be vacant.
A bond election passed in May 2016 to allow for the completion of AHS - bringing its capacity up to 1800 - add classrooms to AMS, build Middle School #2 and Elementary Schools #3 and #4, among other facility improvements.
At build-out, Anna ISD will have four 1800-capacity high schools, eight 750-capacity middle schools, and sixteen 750-capacity elementary schools.
As of the 2010-2011 school year, the appraised valuation of property in the district was $504,279,000. The maintenance tax rate was $0.104 and the bond tax rate was $0.050 per $100 of appraised valuation.
In 2011, the school district was rated "recognized" by the Texas Education Agency. Thirty-five percent of districts in Texas in 2011 received the same rating. No state accountability ratings will be given to districts in 2012. A school district in Texas can receive one of four possible rankings from the Texas Education Agency: Exemplary (the highest possible ranking), Recognized, Academically Acceptable, and Academically Unacceptable (the lowest possible ranking).
