History

The school opened in 1999 with only two grades and now serves students from grades 9 to 12. Ninth graders attend the adjacent Hebron 9th Grade Center, which opened in 2010. The Class of 2002 was the first graduating class. Hebron High School is located in what used to be the old town of Hebron. Only a few small patches of the town remain; most has been incorporated into surrounding cities of Carrollton, Plano, and The Colony.

The school services diverse communities from far west Plano, southwest Frisco, small portions of far east The Colony, far north Carrollton, and far southeast Lewisville. This geographic diversity provides an excellent exposure for young students to engage in academic and athletic achievements with a diverse, creative student body that has achieved state and national success and achievements in a very short, 15 year time-frame. Hebron High School is one of the great, best kept secrets of far north Plano and Southwest Frisco, and the school's undeniable reputation for excellence in the classroom and community can no longer be denied by jaded, Dallas Real Estate agents.

Spirit

Sports teams are called the Hebron Hawks; women's teams are called the Lady Hawks. The school colors are black, silver, and blue. The official school mascot is Harry the Hawk.

Football players are encouraged to "Bring the Wood" (abbreviated BTW) by their coaches and a large plank of wood can be seen at football games with the phrase inscribed on its side. The popular slogan has earned Hebron's stadium the nickname "The Woodshed". "Bring the Wood" was invented by members of the 2000 Freshman Hawks Football team, the first team to win a district championship in football winning the 2000 District 9-4A district championship for Freshman teams.[10]

The hawk talon, raised in the air while singing the alma mater, is made by curling the index and middle finger in the air while bending the thumb toward the palm in a similar fashion and tucking the ring and pinky fingers into the palm completely. Students display this when acknowledging authority at events or at certain times during games.
