I would like to take this opportunity to welcome students and parents to another exciting and rewarding year at Mission High School. For the 2019-2020 school year, Mission HS was rated a B campus, as per the state’s accountability system. Our teachers, staff members, and community are dedicated to continue striving towards improvement and the highest rating possible for next year.
Mission High School offers many opportunities such as a well-rounded, quality, and college ready education with rigor and relevance embedded within the curriculum, multiple athletic programs reaching the playoffs, UIL, JROTC, award winning Cheer, Drill, and Folklorico teams, back to back One-Act Play regional qualifier, back to back second place state Colorguard, and Division One Marching and Concert Bands.
Mission High School is the Home of the Mighty Mission Eagles and home to a rich tradition of excellence and accomplishment. Mission High School has had many students and athletes pave their own history in athletics, Fine Arts, and journalism. Many former athletes and coaches have been named to the Rio Grande Valley and Texas Coaches Hall of Fame. Mission High School is also the home of Tom Landry Hall of Fame Stadium named after mission-native Tom Landry. Our head football coach, Koy Detmer, played at Mission High School, went to college at the University of Colorado, and then, played in the NFL for the Philadelphia Eagles. Now, Coach Detmer leads his alma-mater as the head coach of our Mighty Mission Eagles Football team.
Mission High School is also home of Leo Najo Stadium V.F. Neuhaus Gym, and the newly unveiled Coach Iris G. Iglesias Softball Complex.
Tradition, honor, dedication, respect, and excellence define Mission High School. I am honored and privileged to be the principal at MissionHS and experience students making their own history as they prepare to become tomorrow’s leaders, legends, and contributors to the City of Mission and community.
We look forward to an excellent year. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EAGLES!!!
Mission HS Principal
