Is your student college ready?
For the best chance of making your visions of success a reality, preparing for your student's future has to start much earlier than graduation. GISD believes that "college and career readiness" begins in prekindergarten and encompasses a strong academic foundation including all aspects of the GISD Portrait of a Graduate. At Cisneros we have a College Day every month to let our students know that going to college is an important goal in life.
