Boerne High School is a public high school located in the hill country just 30 miles northwest of San Antonio in Boerne, Texas, USA. The high school used to be the only high school in Boerne which now has a second high school, Boerne Samuel V. Champion High School. The "original" Boerne High School currently serves as Boerne Middle School North.

General information[edit]

The school serves Kendall County and the surrounding areas of IH-10 such as, Cordillera Ranch, Bergheim and Sisterdale. Since the opening of Boerne Samuel V. Champion High School, all students living north of HW-46 attend BHS, while all students living south of HW-46 attend CHS. Boerne is known for its academics and athletics.[citation needed]

Boerne scores higher than both state and national averages on every test, including the ACT and TAKS, specifically in the 2005-2006 year, when the school was "Recognized" for its performance on the TAKS test.

Mission statement[edit]

"To promote excellence in education and support student success at Boerne High School. This will be achieved by maintaining positive lines of communication with students, teachers, parents, and community members, and promoting a friendly, helpful, professional work environment utilizing cooperation, teamwork and the desire to touch the lives and hearts of our students."

Feeder schools[edit]

Athletics[edit]

The athletic department, led by A.D. and Head Basketball Coach Stan Leech, excels in nearly every sport at Boerne. The Greyhounds have won only one District 27-4A title in recent years, and have captured one state championship since 1973. The 'Hounds', regardless of what sport, usually make deep runs in the playoffs, with almost all of the teams making it to at least the Regional finals in the last five years. The football, baseball, soccer, basketball, cross country, tennis and softball teams have all reached regionals within the past 5 years. The softball team won state in 2007. Soccer won state in 2006. Also, the football team reached regionals in 2005, and the state semi-finals in 2004. Baseball and cross country both won state in 2004

History[edit]

The school was closed and renovated in 2008-2009, and re-opened for the 2009-2010 year. During the 2008-2009 school year, all tenth, eleventh and twelfth grade students in the Boerne area attended Boerne Champion High School. Ninth grade students continued to attend the Boerne Middle Schools for this year. At the start of the 2009-2010 school year, both BHS and BCHS housed Boerne ISD's 9-12th graders, while BMSS and BMSN housed 7-8th graders again. Now Boerne Middle School South feeds into Boerne Champion High School and Boerne Middle School North feeds into Boerne High School.
