Mayde Creek High School (MCHS) is a public high school located on Groschke Road in unincorporated Harris County, Texas and is part of the Katy Independent School District. Mayde Creek serves the portions of the city of Houston located in Katy ISD, including Addicks. Mayde Creek also serves many unincorporated communities in Harris County.

The school opened in 1984. When the school opened it had only two grades, eighth and ninth. By the 1986-1987 academic year it held 9th, 10th and 11th graders; the first class of students graduated in 1988.

The school building is divided into two sections, the smaller of which serves as the "Ninth Grade Center". There is a Performing Arts Center and a Natatorium.

Unusual architectural features of the Mayde Creek High School campus include an open floor-plan cafeteria, a wall, and a large number of glass bricks.
