Caring Community Members [One Love + One Community]
We’re one community and there’s a special bond we have on the island.
We’re all different, but we work hard to understand, celebrate, and learn from each other.

We keep trying, because we’re not afraid of getting knocked down.
We always get back up. Stronger.

We manage our emotions and regulate our behaviors.
We are the leaders of our academic journeys—we own our learning and advocate for what we need to ensure we’re on track for unlimited choices for the future.

It may not be a well-known fact that dyslexia can affect up to 20 percent of a student population. It can, and that presents a significant number of students who struggle with dyslexia-related challenges, such as learning to read or interpret words, letters, and other symbols, to name a few.
While the season is soon coming to an end for Ball High School’s Tor band, the influence of one band member - senior drum captain Colin Thomas – is sure to echo forward even after the marching stops.
During a time when Galveston ISD is looking ahead to exciting new developments such as an upgraded football stadium, an innovative new high school, and other improved realities that will only enhance the district’s educational offerings, Thomas is an example of the kind of student those efforts will impact – students who have the ability to use what they learn during their time at GISD and positively benefit themselves and those around them.
The photography offerings available to students at Galveston ISD’s Ball High School have expanded rapidly recently, growing from one course offered to now four in just a two-year span.
The classes, part of the school’s Media Arts and Digital Technology Community, provide students in grades 9 through 12 with opportunities to gain first-hand digital photography experience in a variety of ways, including photographing district and community events.
A first-of-its-kind unmanned aerial and marine piloting program is gaining momentum for students in Galveston Independent School District’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) program at Ball High School this fall.
Originally taking flight this summer as a prototype internship through a partnership with the National Science Foundation and Texas A&M University, the 16-month pilot project provides students with the opportunity to pilot drones, gather aerial and boat mapping data and utilize geographic information systems (GIS) to assist vulnerable communities with pre-disaster mitigation efforts, such as providing state emergency managers with up-to-date information to assist with decision making and recovery efforts when disasters such as floods, hurricanes and wildfires occur.
