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 follows the Pre-K guidelines developed by TEA providing a rigorous environment to address the developmental and social needs as well as the academic content and the readiness skills essential for them 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.
