Grand Prairie ISD Athletics Philosophy

The GPISD Department of Athletics program serves as a functioning part of the school system and offers a myriad of participation opportunities to represent the Grand Prairie Independent School District.  Participation in athletics assists in helping students develop positive relationships, increase academic success, and build good citizenship qualities.

Sports offered include football, volleyball, basketball, cross country, tennis, wrestling, swimming/diving, soccer, softball, baseball, golf, and track and field.

Grand Prairie ISD works to ensure that the District is comparable to other districts with the number of teacher/coaches, types of facilities, and programs offered. The goal is to maintain quality programs that preserve high expectations of students and staff.

The GPISD goal for athletics is to provide the tools necessary for student-athletes to achieve academic success, improve leadership capabilities, exhibit good citizenship qualities, and learn the importance of maintaining team-minded concepts.
