Mentor program 20 years strong

Our students have been receiving guidance, support and tutorials from many community members. The City of Garland Employees Mentoring Program and our school have partnered for two decades.

Are you college ready?

What does it mean to be college ready? For the best chance of making your visions of success a reality, preparing for your future has to start much earlier than graduation. GISD believes that college and career readiness begins in elementary school.

Book fairs

We host two book fairs per school year. Please check with your child for details. We will also post the dates on our website.
