Justin Wakeland High School is a public high school located in the city of Frisco, Texas (USA). It is classified as a 5A school by the UIL. It is a part of the Frisco Independent School District, and is one of nine district high schools. It opened on August 14, 2006. Most sophomores and juniors were transferred from Frisco High School due to the expansion of the city and Frisco ISD. Incoming freshmen usually come from Griffin Middle School, Cobb Middle School, and others from Staley Middle School. In 2015, the school was rated "Met Standard" by the Texas Education Agency.[3]

The school was originally to be named Legacy High School.[4] During construction, it was instead named for Justin Wakeland, who served as the superintendent of the Frisco ISD for 19 years from 1978 to 1997.[5]
