John H. Guyer High School is a public high school situated in the city of Denton, Texas, in Denton County, United States and classified as a 6A school by the UIL. It is a part of the Denton Independent School District located in central Denton County. This was the third high school built by the district and was opened in 2005. In 2013, the school was rated "Academically Acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency.[2]

The school's namesake was a former principal at Denton High School who later served as assistant to the Denton ISD Superintendent. Initially, officials of Denton ISD expected Guyer to be slow to grow, but those thoughts were soon disproved by the flood of transfers from other high schools in the area to Guyer. This unexpected influx of students made it necessary to add twelve portable classrooms to the original school.

Athletics[edit]

Guyer's football team made it to the Class 4A Division I State Semi-Finals in the 2008–09 and 2009–10 school years and to the Class 5A Division II State Finals in the 2010–11 school year, losing to Cibolo Steele, 24–21. Guyer won the Class 4A Division I State Championship in 2012, beating Georgetown, 48–37. In 2013, Guyer won their second straight Class 4A Division I State Championship, 31–14 over San Antonio Brennan. Guyer lost in the first round of the 2017 class 6A playoffs 28–24, losing to Byron Nelson. It was the first time in the program's history that the football team lost the first playoff game.

In 2013, the Guyer girls' soccer team won their first state title. The Lady Wildcats defeated Highland Park 2–1 in the Class 4A state championship.
