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.
It’s cool to be kind, and here, there’s nothing but love.

Courageous Learners [Confident in our Abilities + Fearless in the Face of Failure]

We’re confident in our abilities. If we’re not great at something—yet!—we keep working at it.
We’re not afraid to take risks, and when we fail, we learn from it.
We keep trying, because we’re not afraid of getting knocked down.
We always get back up. Stronger.

Confident Leaders [We Own Our Actions + We Lead Our Academic Journeys]

We’re confident in who we are and we know we’re in control of how we show up each day.
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.




At Weis Middle School, we do things the RITE way:


We respect one another’s right to safety and dignity at school.
We will speak to each other with calmness, politeness, and civility


We exercise the moral courage to do the right thing at all times.


We are honest in our communication and in our conduct.
We follow through on what we say we will do and when we say we will do it.


We recognize that learning is hard but we can reach our learning goals with the guidance of our teachers and the support of our friends.

GISD’s Middle School Realignment – Nearly One Year in Review

In November 2021, after months of meetings, Galveston community members recommended to GISD’s Board of Trustees a new middle school alignment in an effort to unify students within their grade levels and designate specific campuses to grade-level specific initiatives.

The Board approved, and in 2022 the three middle schools - then Collegiate, Central, and Austin - were reorganized into a 5th-grade campus that now exists at Weis, a 6th-grade campus at Austin, and a combined 7th and 8th-grade campus at Central.
