James Bowie High School was originally opened in
1973 and occupied what is presently known as Workman Junior High
School. However, due to the opening of Martin High
School in southwest Arlington and the growth pattern of South
Arlington, Bowie was closed in 1983. In 1991, Bowie reopened
in a beautiful new facility located at 2101 Highbank Drive
at the corner of Highbank and Sherry. Bowie draws attendance
from southeast Arlington and parts of southwest Grand Prairie.
Due to the fast growth in this area of town, new academic wings,
a new gym and an expanded cafeteria were built to keep pace with
the fast growth.
Our feeder junior high schools include Barnett (100%), Ferguson (45%), Gunn (12%), and Workman (35%).
The first principal
of James Bowie High School was Mrs. Jean Richerson until her
retirement. Following Mrs. Richerson was Mrs. Cheryl Rose,
Mr. Davey Jones and Mr. Darrell Sneed who held the position for seven years until 2008. Ms. Michelle Wilmoth, a former Bowie Teacher and Assistant Principal began as Principal in the Fall of 2008.

and honor academic excellence and emphasize success and responsibility

We dedicate ourselves to establishing a challenging and creative
