A Message from Adan Casas:

I am so blessed to have the opportunity to lead the students and staff  of Waxahachie High School. The excitement of opening this brand new campus can be felt by the students, staff, and the community. The state of the art facilities here in WISD provide great opportunities and resources for the community. Waxahachie ISD is rich in tradition with the successes of its programs and I am thrilled to be a part of these traditions.  

I am a firm believer that every student can be successful given the opportunities and tools to flourish. Creating a positive learning environment is very important to me. Staff support is vital for success of the students at WHS. Waxahachie High School has high expectations for the students. My desire is for each to student to leave WHS to enter the next phase of their lives as productive citizens. This next phase looks different for each student.  Having them prepared academically and socially is a priority.
