Lorimer Arendse


Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year where we are Building Our Future Together.  There are many exciting things happening at Grand Prairie High School but none brings greater joy than serving our students.  This year we will experience tremendous academic growth because of the incredible and talented educators that serve our students.

Parents and Guardians, you have an important role in the education of your student(s).  You are the coach that sets the expectation for excellence in all that your student(s) do.  This is not an easy task but it needs to be done.  I believe that together we can help your student(s) achieve unprecedented success.

Students, your obligation is to honor your parents/guardians because I know that they want to see you succeed.  I believe that you can accomplish greatness if we work together toward a single purpose.

You have chosen the best High School in the State of Texas! Be proud to wear the blue and represent Grand Prairie High School Gophers!  Ahhhhh GP!!!
