New Era Begins at Argyle High School!
A new era began last week for Argyle High School with the opening of the new campus in Canyon Falls.

The campus still has construction being completed through September.
Phase II of Argyle High School includes these additions:
- New instructional wing and more than 40 additional classrooms
- Black box theatre
- Band Hall
- Choir Room
- Expanded Library/Cafeteria
- Dedicated Band practice lot
- Athletic Practice Fields

Additionally, Argyle ISD has created a COVID-19 dashboard to keep parents, staff, students and the community aware of the positive case totals at the campuses. The dashboard is updated by 6 p.m. each school day. The numbers are based on only cases confirmed through documentation.
