About Our School
Guyer High School opened its doors in 2005, becoming the third comprehensive high school in Denton ISD. The school is named after John Guyer, a former teacher, coach and administrator for Denton ISD. The school is proud of its namesake and continues a dedicated relationship with members of the Guyer family.
Guyer motto is “where tradition begins and excellence continues” and the students and faculty have made that a reality in the school’s short time in existence. Guyer has already developed a top-notch reputation for developing well-rounded students who have routinely shown excellence in academics, athletics and fine arts.
Students at Guyer have the opportunity to take a variety of academic courses, including Advanced Placement, Pre-AP classes and dual-credit college courses. In addition, Guyer’s UIL one-act play was a recent state finalist, had a state champion debater and members of its forensics team finished among the best in the nation. Recent Guyer graduates have gone on to such prestigious academic institutions as Dartmouth College, Amherst College, Rice University, University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University, University of North Texas, and the U.S. Air Force Academy.
There are a variety of extracurricular clubs as well with something for every student’s interest. Students can choose from band, choir, art, ROTC, and FFA as well as unique offerings like League of Friends, a peer support group that offers moral and social support, and the Guyer Bowling Team, which offers a fun and competitive outlet for students.
Guyer athletic teams are already well known throughout the state for their intense competitiveness and good sportsmanship. In just seven years, Wildcat football has reached three state semifinals and played for a state championship. Other sports that have earned state recognition or district accolades include: volleyball, softball, baseball, swimming, track and field, and girls and boys soccer.
