At that time the high school also served students from Melissa Texas until the 2004-2005 school year, until Melissa High School opened. Anna High has been located at several campuses since the 1980s. The site that opened in 1987 now houses the ISD’s DAEP program and school board. The site that opened in 2000 is now Anna Middle School. The current location opened for the 2011-2012 school year, and due to growth, will be expanded in the coming years.
