Munday High School is a public high school located in Munday, Texas (USA) and classified as a 1A school by the UIL. It is part of the Munday Consolidated Independent School District located in southeastern Knox County. In 2003, neighboring Goree High School in Goree, Texas was consolidated with Munday and all high school grades began attending Munday. Munday High School became known "officially" as Munday Secondary School not long after the merger with Goree. The Goree school became a junior high school for the district until 2009 when the school closed and those students were transferred to Munday. In 2015, the school was rated "Met Standard" by the Texas Education Agency.[2]
