Conroe High School is a secondary school in Conroe, Texas, and is the flagship campus of Conroe ISD. The school is a part of the Conroe Independent School District and serves the CISD portion of the city of Conroe, Cut and Shoot, and River Plantation.
The campus was initially built in 1964 to replace the older Davy Crockett High School as Conroe's primary high school. The new campus was then named for the community it serves.
The school absorbs a diverse student body with a slim majority of Hispanics in addition to a sizable portion of whites and African Americans, among other races.
In 2006, a huge renovation and addition construction project was begun, adding a new wing to the main building, but also another building adjacent to the Rotunda on the western part of campus.
Also found at Conroe High School is the Academy for Science and Health Professions. In this magnet program, Academy students graduate from Conroe High School and Caney Creek High School.
From the 2013–14 school year, Conroe High School's Freshmen Class attended school at the new Conroe High School 9th Grade Campus (formerly John V. Peet Junior High School prior to occupying the new building on Longmire Rd.)
As of the 2017-2018 school year, CHS had 3,940 students enrolled.
- 55.0% were Hispanic
- 30.2% were White
- 10.1% were African American
- 1.9% were Asian
- 0.6% were American Indian
- 0.1% were Pacific Islander
- 2.1% were part of Two or More races
57.2% of students were listed as Economically Disadvantaged, and 13% were English Language Learners.
At the beginning of each school year, the Texas Education Agency assigns schools a grade based on three different indices: Student Achievement, School Progress, and Closing the Gaps. For each index, schools are classified as "Met Standard" if they receive a grade of at least 60 out of 100. In 2018, Conroe High School received an overall score of 79 and was classified as "Met Standard." The school received scores of 81 in Student Achievement, 81 in School Progress, and 74 in Closing the Gaps. In addition, the agency also awards schools with "Distinction Designations" if they outperform schools with similar demographics. In 2018, Conroe High School was awarded two of the seven possible Distinction Designations: Academic Achievement in Science and Academic Achievement in Social Studies.
