About WHS

Wylie High School, home of AHMO pride, is the original high school of Wylie Texas. Our students and staff are proud of the traditions and many student achievements that have occurred since it's opening in 1905. Enrollment has reached a total of 2,596 students and we are still growing. We are known for our strong academics, accomplished fine arts, as well as our winning athletics. Don't be surprised if you hear someone call out "ahmo!".

Mission Statement

The Wylie High School Library Program is the heart of WHS where, in partnership with teachers, students are nurtured to grow and develop a love of reading, deeper understanding of the world of information, and an appreciation of their own abilities, paving the way to their successful future.
