Round Rock High School is a 6A high school within the Round Rock Independent School District in Round Rock, Texas. During the late 1990s, it was the largest high school in Central Texas.[2]

Extracurricular activities[edit]

Round Rock received national attention for its 1994-95 yearbook, believed to be the first ever released in CD-ROM format.[3][4] The yearbook contained 2,000 photographs, 25 minutes of video and 20 minutes of audio material.[5]

In 1996-97, the baseball team won the 5A state championship, defeating Lubbock Monterey by a score of 7-1 in the tournament final.[6]

The Computer Science team won the 5A State Championship in 1998.[7]

The Round Rock High School Drumline has won the statewide Lonestar Drumline Competition twice, first in 2007 and again in 2008, beating the next best competitor by at least 1.5 points out of 100 each time. They also won two state championships in the TCGC State Indoor Drumline Competition Marching Open Class: once in March 2009, and again in March 2010.[8][9][10][11]

The newspaper and yearbook are consistently ranked among the tops in the state and nation. The 2014 Dragon yearbook was named a Gold Crown Finalist by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association.[12]
