  • Grand Prairie ISD is honored that you are considering placing your child at one of our Pre-K facilities. We want to make the process of applying for Pre-K as simple as possible, so we have developed these guidelines to help along the way. 
    The Pre-K program in GPISD has been developed using the TEA’s guidelines and early education best practices, including Dual Language at a majority of our campuses.  Our program provides a rigorous environment to address developmental and social needs as well as the academic content and the readiness skills essential for children to be successful.   
    Our focus is bringing families together in an educational community that helps to provide a rich environment in which students can develop and reach their potential.  We intentionally develop strong relationships with students, their families and our community.
