The mission of G-PISD is to educate, inspire, and empower our students to succeed in life and become the next generation of leaders.
In G-PISD, we believe our ...
STUDENTS are leaders and critical thinkers who embrace diversity and pursue excellence in all endeavors.
PARENTS / FAMILIES are true partners, have a voice, and have high expectations.
FACULTY AND STAFF build inclusive relationships and maximize student success with integrity, compassion, and talent.
PRINCIPALS AND CAMPUS LEADERSHIP are courageous leaders who show grace, empower others, embrace diversity, and cultivate G-P pride.
SUPERINTENDENT AND CENTRAL OFFICE advance our vision with intention, collaboration, and purpose-driven leadership.
BOARD OF TRUSTEES are strategic, collaborative leaders who model good governance and empower and inspire others to serve the G-P community.
High-performing public schools change lives. What happens here determines what is possible next. What happens here opens doors, removes barriers, and provides abounding opportunities for a lifetime.
Here at G-PISD we EDUCATE, INSPIRE, and EMPOWER based on the beliefs and values collectively embraced for the benefit of our PEOPLE —children, and children at heart— who live, learn, work, and grow together in our schools and community. Here, we commit to continuous personal and professional improvement and the truth that every student, every person is capable of progress that leads to success.
High-performing schools are created by high-performing people. People who find their place to belong within a team, within a culture where caring comes first and mistakes are opportunities for growth. A culture that fosters communication, courage, inclusion, integrity, and selflessness. A culture requiring practiced behaviors that exhibit those values; a culture based on common good, common need, and a common vision. A culture where our strength is found in relationships. Where success is discovered together through the adventure of overcoming challenges and being vulnerable enough to take the risk necessary to rise. A culture where people know, believe, and prove that their success is without limit when they choose to be kind, compassionate, generous, and genuine -- to be real and relatable with one another.

The G-PISD Board of Trustees has several Board Goals for the school district, and each year specific plans are outlined for every campus and district office to support those goals as well as improve additional focus areas identified by Administration and/or community (via surveys, district and campus committees, individual suggestions/comments, etc.). The most recent versions of these annual Improvement Plans are listed below for public view.
