• Scarborough High School
    Our History 

    Named after G.C. Scarborough, a deputy HISD superintendent in the early 1950's. Scarborough High School was opened on May 27, 1968. The school was built to relieve the congestion of Waltrip High School. It is located in the North Division of Houston Independent School District. 


    The school was originally built as a Junior High, opening for the Spring Semester of 1968, became a Junior-Senior High in 1970, and finally transformed itself again as a High School when Clifton Middle School opened several years later. Even then, the school always seemed to be changing.


    Scarborough High School Principal, Lilly Rincon, sought to create a unique school experience as the only high school to offer a dual language program. Students who are zoned to Scarborough as well as those who apply through the Office of School Choice Magnet program will be able to access the program. The World Language Program was established in 2022.
