WMHS Basics

About WMHS

West Mesquite High School is a secondary school in Mesquite, Texas, United States. The school serves the western portion of Mesquite and most of the MISD portion of Balch Springs.  

The school, which serves grades 9 through 12, is a part of the Mesquite Independent School District. West Mesquite opened as a middle school in 1976, housing 7th, 8th, and 9th grades. The first graduating class received diplomas in 1984!

The school is located near the Mesquite Championship Rodeo at the Mesquite Arena, and was actually built on land once owned by the Rodeo. There was once a pond that horses drank from. If it were there today, it would cover the water fountain, and much of the north end of the Memorial Stadium.

Also located near campus is the the Mesquite Tower which broadcasts the school district's own radio station, KEOM.

HB3 Board Goals

HB3 requires school boards to adopt detailed plans developed by their management teams that achieve goals in two key areas:

  1. Early childhood literacy and mathematics (EC-LM) proficiency
  2. College, career, and military readiness (CCMR)

School boards must review the progress of each plan at least annually at a public meeting. These goals will be posted on the district website for the district level goals and on each campus website for the campus level goals once approved. The Board of Trustees approved these goals at the May 9, 2022, meeting. To view a downloadable, printable document containing these goals, click on the following button.
