Joseph W. Nixon High School


It gives me great pleasure to welcome the students and families of J.W. Nixon High School, home of the Mighty Mustangs!

Our school was established in 1964 and represents over fifty years of tradition and excellence. At Nixon High School, we are committed to the academic success of students. Our mission is to provide a conducive learning environment that engages all students, centers on a strong instructional program, and sets high expectations for students and staff.

With this in mind, many of our students will be testing STAAR in ELA1, ELA2, Algebra 1, Biology and U.S. History in the coming weeks. Our teachers and students have been preparing for these exams.  We ask that you talk to your child to explain the importance of doing their best. In addition, afterschool and Saturday tutorials are available for students.

Great things are happening at Mustang Land. I am honored and privileged to serve as the Principal of J.W. Nixon High School. I invite you to be part of our success, where you will always be “Forever Green and Gold”!
