Message from the Principal

In 1967 the Denison Community School District started collaborating about the possibility of building a new high school.   In December of 1967 a bond issue for approximately $1.4 million was passed by the voters of Denison Community School District by a vote of 1,632 yes votes to 420 no votes.  In the fall of 1970 the high school students of the Denison Community School District moved into the current high school.  Today’s current high school of approximately 720 students and approximately 65 staff members are very thankful to those 1,632 yes voters for providing us with the facility we have today. The collaboration displayed back in 1967 between the Denison Community Schools and the community to build a new high school is the same collaboration we use to prepare our students to be successful employers, employees, and citizens in the 21st century.  “Quality Learning Today; Preparing Citizens of Tomorrow”.
