Equitable Opportunities. Extraordinary Experiences.
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.

GISD Science Teachers were among the presenters at the 6th Annual Greater Houston Area STEM Conference on Saturday, March 4th, 2023.
Lori Williamson, Dr. Jean Langevine, Cathy Nall, Laura Hurt and Catherine Thomas did a great job representing GISD.
Galveston ISD is proud to welcome James Grant as the district’s new Executive Director of Operations.
Grant, who prefers to be called “Jim,” has worked in education for 39 years, including serving 14 years as assistant superintendent of operations.
A shop teacher by trade, Grant joins the GISD team by way of Florence, Texas, having served New Caney ISD for 17 years.
To say that 19-year-old Ball High School alumna Kaylhan Garcia is impressive is an understatement.
A 2021 Ball High School graduate and Galveston native, Garcia is currently a sophomore attending American University in Washington D.C. while pursuing a degree in data science for justice law and criminology with a minor in Spanish.

GISD will host its annual Schools of Choice Fair from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 1, in the Ball High School cafeteria in an effort to display all the reasons why GISD is a fantastic educational choice to current student families and Galveston residents who may be considering the district for their child’s education.
The gymnasium in Galveston ISD’s Austin Middle School was brimming with young scholars and approximately 300 science projects on display recently during the district’s STEM Science Fair.
The fair is only the second of its kind to be hosted by the district, with the first occurring before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Galveston ISD is proud to announce Delton Kelly as the district’s new Director of Maintenance and Operations.
While Delton is new to the role, he is not new to the island, or GISD for that matter. He is a proud “BOI” (born on island) who has attended GISD from kindergarten through graduation from Ball High School in 1983, and he’s worked for the district full-time for 15 years.
The highest priority of Galveston ISD’s leadership surrounds one thing and one thing only: student safety.
To increase security measures at Ball High School, GISD will install a weapons detection system at the school’s entrance in the near 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.
