Dear Bullpups,


I am excited to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year at McPherson High School!  McPherson High School is a wonderful school with talented staff and strong community support!  Together, we help each student find their “Greatness” to achieve their maximum potential while tailoring personalized learning plans to meet each student’s postsecondary goals.  We celebrate with our students as they realize each personal moment of greatness, no matter how big or small. At McPherson High School, we are committed to helping each student find greatness and reach their maximum potential.    


During the 2021-2022 school year, US News & World Report ranked McPherson High School #40 among Kansas High Schools!  McPherson High School earned this honor by offering a rigorous curriculum, robust course offerings, and a multitude of programs that prepare each student for their postsecondary endeavors.  


It is also an honor to also share that McPherson High School has earned the title of a 2022 APPLY Kansas All Star High School by the Kansas Board of Regents!  Both of these honors speak to our mission of preparing students for life beyond high school and equipping each of our graduates with the skills and knowledge to pursue their dreams and future plans.


Staff members at McPherson High School take great pride in knowing that each student will be equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to successfully contribute to society and become tomorrow’s leaders.  We would like to say thank you for continued support from our students, families, alumni, community members, and local businesses.  We are successful because of your continued support.
