  • Heritage Eagles celebrate College Week, visit Collegiate Academy


    HES visits CA In celebration of College Week at Heritage Elementary School, third, fourth and fifth graders took the opportunity to visit GCISD's Collegiate Academy at Tarrant County College (TCC) Northeast on Tuesday, Sept. 29. Students have been learning about the five attributes of the GCISD portrait of a graduate and how these attributes prepare them to be career- and college-ready.


    During their visit, students watched a skit in the Center Corner followed by a tour of the TCC campus and the Collegiate Academy building. The elementary students were excited to walk around the campus and see areas, such as the library, science lab, and study center. A few comments from students included:

    • "Look! It's a giant building full of books."
    • "It's a vending machine where you can buy school supplies. I want one of those!"
    • "I'm so going to school here one day!" (Heritage ES Principal Stacey Voigt's favorite comment of the day.) 


    "It was an enjoyable and memorable experience for our students," Voigt said. "Staff members were also excited to see former students who were attending the Collegiate Academy. We hope to make this an annual tradition during College Week at Heritage Elementary School."

  • GCISD High Schools Outperform Statewide Averages
    Colleyville Heritage and Grapevine High Schools Post Remarkably Similar Results
    In a side-by-side comparison of scores on college entrance scores, AP exam results, graduation rates and other data, GCISD’s two traditional high schools easily outpace average scores from around the state, while posting nearly identical numbers to one another.
    Each school currently has 10 National Merit Semifinalists. Grapevine High has 28 National Merit commended students and Colleyville Heritage High has 27. Both schools average in the 1,600’s for combined SAT scores. The schools posted comparable ACT composite scores, with GHS averaging 25.1 and CHHS at 24.6, both well above the 20.9 statewide average. Across the board, CHHS and GHS easily outpace the average statewide end of course scores with very comparable numbers from each campus.
    Review the 2015 High School Stats chart for a look on the outstanding performance of both schools.

  • CHHS Band named Overall Champions in US Bands in Motion Competition


    CHHS Band Champ092615 On Saturday, September 26, the Colleyville Heritage High School Panther Band traveled to Houston for the US Bands Music in Motion Houston Competition, where they were named overall champion. They also won caption awards for best Visual, Overall Effect, Color Guard and Percussion!


    "What an incredible leap forward for the CHHS Panther Band Program," said Patrick Antinone, GCISD director of Fine Arts. "In just over one calendar year, the leadership team of Head Director Nick Thomas, Associate Directors Laura Hunt and Nick Beaudet, along with an extended ancillary staff and a small army of parent supporters have transformed Panther Band into a regional champion."

B.E.S.T. Report

  • Constructive Feedback

    Posted by Communication Services at 9/18/2015
    As you might imagine, I receive a few emails every day. Some are positive, but it has been my experience that people who are happy with the way things are going seldom write... because they are happy. Sometimes, I get the occasional email with some "constructive" feedback. That's OK because we are always searching for ways to improve our service to the patrons of GCISD. 
    The other day, I received an email that was so positive and such a testament to the team we have in GCISD that I just had to pass it along. I understand that we have wonderful people in every department and on every campus. Our employees often go the extra mile to help others. This email says it all. (As an Aggie, it was very difficult not to edit out a few words of the email, but I resisted the temptation.) 
    The following email is just one example of why GCISD is the BEST!

    ---Forwarded Email---
    I am a Retired HS & College FB Coach in the great State of Texas. I played Football @ Abilene HS & The Texas Longhorns of Coach Darrell Royal. I coached for 40 years here in Texas with the chance to play & coach at some of the best FB programs in the state. These opportunities have allowed me, along with my playing experience, to see close some of this states best FB venues through the years. Now my name is not famous, and the things I say will not draw the attention of any sports writer or broadcaster, but I want you to know they come from my heart and I do know what I'm talking about.
    I attended the Abilene High & Colleyville Heritage game Friday night @ Mustang Panther Stadium and was a guest of Abilene High, in the locker room and on the sideline. I had Dbl Knee Replacement surgery 2 months ago and it was not easy to stand that long. The stadium workers were without a doubt my greatest pleasure during the night. From the moment I walked up to the gate until 1 of your workers gave me a courtesy ride to my car in a golf cart after the game, every need I could even imagine was not only met but met with a smile & friendly manner, often before I could even ask. I wish I knew the names of at least 6 or 7 of your staff who treated me like a king Friday night. In 53 years of FB as a player & Coach, I have seen lots of stadiums & even more stadium workers, but the best I have ever seen or experienced were all dressed in red Friday night @ Mustang Panther Stadium. If these people are a reflection of the way things are done in your district, and I'm sure they are, any student going to your schools is blessed indeed.
    GOD Bless Your School District & Every Person In It.
