Brief History

In March 1901, the Mesquite Independent School District was incorporated at the behest of the citizens of Mesquite, Texas to serve the primary and secondary educational needs of the city. The first school was established at the current site of MHS in 1902 with an enrollment of approximately 200 students. A new high school was built on the property in June 1923. MHS was officially recognized as an accredited high school in June 1924 by the Texas State Department of Education.
