Unfortunately, it looks like the majority are sticking with the same kind of horns on this one, though. In other words, it sounds like most high schools have the same type of thing. The Yamaha is a classic, while the King is actually a good version of it. The MW, Miraphone, etc. mentioned...well, most of them are the same (similar size, rotary valves, etc.). So, it looks like high schools basically have the same type of thing.
Certain horns, in fact, do work better for high school bands, and certain horns are more often used by high school bands.
