Family Engagement survey

Each year the schools ask parents to provide feedback about our school family engagement.  This feedback helps us identify our strengths and areas for improvement.  As a parent, please respond to each statement on the survey. Your input is invaluable! 

Parents, welcome to the North Garland High School! Our goal is to provide resources here especially helpful for parents both in supporting your students, and in becoming more involved at North Garland High School.

One important resource available to parents is gained by setting up your Skyward Family Access account. With Skyward, parents and students have an easy-to-access line of communication to current attendance, grades, course schedules and more.

Parents, we also want to invite you to participate in campus and district activities! Volunteer opportunities are an excellent way to become involved. For more information, please visit our Volunteer pages, and our Campus Improvement and Parent Involvement page.

Thank you, and welcome to North Garland High School!

Free and reduced lunch program

Parents and students, the National School Lunch Program is a federally assisted meal program operating in publics schools including North Garland High School. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school day. The program was established under the National School Lunch Act, signed by President Harry Truman in 1946.
