• Timberline Elementary was named to the Texas Business & Education Coalition's Honor Roll for 2008 and again for 2009. This is a prestigious award for sustained academic excellence in Texas, with fewer than 4 percent of the state's 8,000 public schools selected to receive this honor.

    The TBEC Honor Roll recognizes schools that have demonstrated three years of consistent, high performance in all subjects compared to other schools serving similar student populations.


    The Grapevine-Colleyville Education Foundation generates and distributes resources to the GCISD for programs and projects that enhance the quality of education and provide students with the opportunity to become contributing citizens in our democratic society and in our increasingly complex world.
