Argyle High School is moving to Class 5A starting next year.
The University Interscholastic League released the realignment cutoff enrollment figures for all classifications for the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 school years. The enrollment number for schools in Class 5A is 1,300-1,924. Argyle High School reported an enrollment of 1,342 when figures were submitted in October.
"We will be leaving Class 4A after two of our most successful school years in athletics and we expect to carry that momentum into 5A," Argyle ISD Athletic Director & Head Football Coach Todd Rodgers said. "We have dedicated student-athletes and coaches who are well aware of the challenges programs have in moving up in classification. We will embrace this transition and look forward to starting a new tradition and level of excellence in 5A."
Argyle will compete in football in Class 5A Division II. Argyle ISD is experiencing rapid growth and this move up during this realignment was expected. The UIL will release the newly-aligned districts on Feb. 3, 2022. At that time, Argyle will learn which schools it will compete against.
Argyle has won a record nine consecutive UIL Lone Star Cup Awards and 11 in school history.
This move not only impacts athletics but also fine arts and academic competitions.
