They are the EIGHT time UIL State Marching Band Gold Medalists and two time Silver Medalists and have won the ATSSB Outstanding Performance Series in concert band numerous times.

Marching Band

The 8 time state champion Argyle High School Marching Band holds the record for most state championships won of any marching band, regardless of classification, in Texas. These students have to advance from the Region marching contest, make finals at area, be in the top 3 or 4 bands at the area level, then place in the top 10 at the State Marching Contest to advance to finals, where these rankings are finalized. The Argyle Marching Band has not only advanced to State, but they have made finals every single year at the UIL State Marching contest.
