Snyder High School opened its doors on August 14, 2002 to seventy-four ninth graders.
In 2006, we graduated our first class of seniors.

Snyder High School students, is a college preparatory education coupled with the formation of the three main tenets of our mission: competence, conscience, and compassion.
