Tioga High School is a senior high school in Tioga, Texas and a part of the Tioga Independent School District.

History[edit]

Tioga High School closed in 1961,[1] making Tioga ISD a Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade district.[1] Students in grades nine through twelve attended Gunter High School in the Gunter Independent School District.[2]

However, beginning with the 2012-2013 school year, the District began its own high school, starting with the 9th grade and adding one grade each year until all 12 grades were served in the 2015-2016 school year.[citation needed] At one time the district considered consolidating with another school district. Instead it opted to re-establish its high school.[3]

Previously all grades of Tioga ISD were in the same building but it planned to establish a 62,000-square-foot (5,800 m2) high school building and track. VLK Architects, a company in Fort Worth, Texas, is designing the building.[4] In July 2016 the district voters approved a lease-purchase agreement to buy land for the high school.[5] Groundbreaking occurred in December 2016.[6]
