High School Classes

The Argyle High School band is the largest organization at Argyle High School and has a rich history of success in both the fall during marching season and the spring during concert season.

They have also been named the TMEA Honor Band 3 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.

Colorguard / Winterguard

Our Colorguard is the group of students who performs choreographed dances and routines along with various equipment from flags, to sabers and rifles. They perform and travel with the Argyle High School Marching Band!

There will also be a standalone winterguard season. Please email Ms. King (Erica.King@argyleisd.com) for details or if you have any questions or concerns!

 

We are trying to grow our colorguard program, so if you know of any students who are interested in dance, choreography, etc (especially if they aren't currently in band!) please let them know they can reach out to us for more information!
