  • GHS and CHHS AP Fine Arts programs earn top marks

     

    AP art The Advanced Placement (AP) Fine Arts programs at both Grapevine High School and Colleyville Heritage High School earned high rankings in the 2016 College Board qualifications. In fact, the AP art history program at Grapevine High School is ranked number one in the state and number five in the nation. Overall, the AP fine arts program at GHS is ranked fourth in state and CHHS is ranked 18th. This ranking comes from advanced placement data, which combine enrollment numbers and passing percentages to determine each ranking.

     

    “The students work extremely hard and the success of the program is a direct reflection of their dedication,” said Jeffrey Nisbet, GHS AP art history teacher. “My goal is to continue to grow the art history program so more students have the ability to take this great subject.”

     

    This year, 95 GHS students took the AP art history exam and 88 received a passing score which resulted in a 93 percent passing rate. Over the past three years the number of students taking the exam has tripled and the program continues to produce high passing rates.

     

    “Mr. Nisbet has created an environment within his classrooms that students flock to,” said David Denning, GHS principal. “His passion about Art History is contagious and the students leave his class with the same passion. I can not be more proud of what he and his students have accomplished.”

BEST Report

  • Happy Thanksgiving

    Posted by Communication Services at 11/17/2016

    On the "Thank-you Thursday" before the Thanksgiving break, I thought I would write the B.E.S.T. Report a day early.

     

    In GCISD, we have so many things for which to be thankful. Terrific students, amazing co-workers, supportive parents and the list could go on and on. I hope we will take the time in the next two days to sincerely thank those around us, for it is the people and the culture in GCISD that sets us apart. Whether a classroom teacher or others who support our students in some way, we are fortunate to live and work in a great place.

     

    We have had a tremendous school year so far, and I thank each of you for doing your part to make this the BEST school district in America. We are a destination district because of the people in GCISD.

     

    I am blessed to be a part.

     

    Happy Thanksgiving,
    RR
