Social Studies

The Youth and Government State Conference was held on January 31st-February 2nd in Austin. Students showcased their political skills by modeling state government in various locations around Austin, including the State Capitol and Travis County Courthouse. The team from Chisholm Trail High School, sponsored by Rachel Head, had a very successful conference. Edward Aitcheson and Haley Salas competed in the Legislative session, and both had their individual bills make it out of committee. Haley Salas earned Distinguished Delegate and Outstanding Club Leader.


We have 80 yearbooks available for pre-order on They are sold first come, first serve. Once they're gone, we're sold out. Order today so your student does not miss out.

Yearbooks will be delivered the week before finals. We will post that information on all of our social media when the time is closer.

We are accepting applications now for students to serve on the yearbook and newspaper staffs. Students can see Mrs. Lee in room 303 for more information.
