S.H. Rider High School is a public school in Wichita Falls, Texas (USA). It is part of the Wichita Falls Independent School District and is one of the district's three high schools.

Located at 4611 Cypress Avenue in southwestern Wichita Falls, the school opened in 1961 and serves students in grades nine through twelve.

The school mascot is the Rider Raider.

The Alma Mater was written by the school's choral director, Donald B. Cowan who taught at Rider for 32 years.

The school was named for Stephen H. Rider, a long-time educator in the Wichita Falls Independent School District. He was principal of Wichita Falls High School from 1919 to 1949. He died in 1958, two years before ground was broken for the school that bears his name.

In 2012, the Rider High School Marching Band was invited to participate in the New Year's Day Parade held in London, England. The event was the first of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee which celebrated England's 2012 hosting of the Summer Olympics.

Rivalry[edit]

Rider High School has long had a rivalry with Wichita Falls High School, locally know as "Old High". The week of the football games between the two makes news each year, also sparking vandalism, wrecks and attacks from both sides. Rider holds "The Happening", a tradition that happens the day before the Rider-Old High game that marks the end of the district football season and beginning of the play-off season. "The Happening" usually includes pep rallies, barbecues, fireworks, and a parade through the neighborhood surrounding Rider.

In 2007 the gross expenditure per student was approximately $4,528.

11% percent of students are enrolled in the Special Education. 12.4% are listed as members of the Gifted and Talented Association, though notable the campus has no program to accommodate these students to speak of.
