About Us

The Garland Independent School District exists as a diverse community with a shared vision that serves to provide an exceptional education to all of its students. With a robust tradition of excellence dating back more than 100 years, GISD spans the cities of Garland, Rowlett and Sachse. It ranks as the second-largest district in Dallas County, fifth-largest in Dallas-Fort Worth and 15th-largest in Texas with more than 56,000 students, 7,500 staff members and 72 campuses.

Choice of School

GISD is the only option for true choice when it comes to public schools. Instead of worrying about attendance zones, our families have the opportunity to customize their educational experience with a unique Choice of School program that allows students to attend any campus in the district—whether it’s down the street or across town. Specialized curriculum options engage students in active, hands-on learning, from programming robots to studying stars in a portable planetarium. Students are also encouraged to explore potential passions for everything from piano and business to criminal justice and television production.

Arts and Extracurriculars

The district provides visual and performing arts, athletics and other extracurricular activities at all grade levels so that students can develop their talents, explore their passions and build self-esteem and discipline. From choir to cheerleading, drama to drawing, strings to soccer, and everything in between, there’s truly something for everyone.

College and Careers

As a district, we are committed to ensuring that all Garland ISD students graduate with at least twelve hours of college credit in addition to their high school diplomas.
