School History

The Mansfield school district was a one high school district for many years. In 1998, the current Summit High School building was opened on Turner-Warnell Road in Arlington. It was originally the north campus center housing mainly juniors and seniors in the entire district. Mansfield High School was composed of two campuses – North and South Campus. But in 2002, students who would be seniors in the 2002–2003 school year had the option to choose which school they would graduate from. The Mansfield High School name moved to a new building, while the old North Campus building became the site for Summit High School. The South Campus became Brooks Wester Middle School.

Mansfield Timberview High School opened on highway 360 as Summit approached capacity. Again in 2007 another school opened, named Mansfield Legacy High School. Once again, students had the choice to pick which school they wished to attend. MISD now has five high schools: Mansfield, Mansfield Summit, Mansfield Timberview, Mansfield Legacy, and Mansfield Lake Ridge built in 2012. It also has a high school facility titled, Ben Barber Career and Technology Academy, in which students from the high schools are bused to and from their home campuses.
