McKinney, Texas – Serenity High, the nation’s longest-tenured public recovery high school, has been helping students from Collin and surrounding counties get their lives back on track for 19 years. During which time, Serenity has been operating out of four portable buildings.

On September 22, 2018, a ribbon cutting celebration was held at the location of Serenity High’s new permanent home, 2550 Wilmeth Drive, adjacent to the south side of McKinney North High School.

Serenity Board Members, staff and school supporters attended this milestone event in the life of the recovery community of North Texas. The ceremony included an address from a Serenity High graduate, Principal Stephen Issa, Retired Principal Juli Ferraro and MISD Superintendent Dr. Rick McDaniel.  

Serenity High is a fully accredited high school in the McKinney I.S.D. It is a school for students who have completed drug and alcohol rehab and been advised not to go back into their old school environments. Serenity is open to students from other districts as well. Many of those districts partner with MISD so that their students can attend without further cost to their parents. Confidence and self-esteem are rebuilt while sobriety is celebrated at Serenity High in McKinney.
