Estacado High School
Estacado High School, 1504 E. Itasca Ave., opened in the fall of 1967 and was named for the early South Plains community of Estacado, which was located east of Lubbock on the Lubbock-Crosby county line.

The mostly Quaker settlers of Estacado began arriving in the area in 1879.

The name itself is derived from the Spaniards' designation of the area as the Llano Estacado, or Land of the Staked Plains. The high school was designed for 1,600 students and total cost for the facility was $3.8 million.

Olan Rice was the first principal of the school and served in that role through the 1969-70 school year. The school has held ninth through 12th grades for most of its history.

It currently offers a variety of magnet courses unique to the campus - medical, law and criminal justice, engineering and architecture and the U.S. Army Junior ROTC program.
