Highland Park to move to District 15-5A
Scots to rekindle rivalries with several area high schools
Highland Park High School will rekindle old rivalries with several area high schools as part of a realignment announced today by the University Interscholastic League (UIL). The Scots will compete in District 15-5A beginning in the 2016-17 school year.  

HPHS was reclassified by the UIL as a 5A school for the next two years based upon enrollment. While HPHS's enrollment had risen to 2,116, the criteria for being classified as a 6A school had risen even further to 2,150, which means that the school's academic, athletic teams and fine arts programs will compete at the 5A level for the 2016-18 school years.

The UIL realigns districts to balance the number of teams and to minimize travel. The following teams will compete with HPHS in District 15-5A:
  • Forney
  • Lucas Lovejoy 
  • Mesquite Poteet 
  • North Forney 
  • Royse City 
  • West Mesquite 
  • Wylie East
