The vision of the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District is to be THE BEST, which is defined as Building Excellent Schools Together. The Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District inspires, encourages and empowers students to achieve their full potential in a global society.


We will promote good citizenship and prepare, motivate and encourage each student to reach his or her full potential within a safe, caring, cooperative environment by providing an effective and enduring education.


The Board of Trustees holds high expectations for the students of the Grapevine-Colleyville School District. We believe that providing top-quality education is the first priority of the school system. Toward that purpose, we believe that:

  1. Fundamental academic skills are essential for student success and high standards should be held for academic achievement in all subject areas. GCISD must challenge and motivate each student to achieve at the highest level possible.
  2. A comprehensive improvement plan is essential in determining direction and providing a common framework for decision making. GCISD will continuously improve educational programs, methods, services and communication through comprehensive planning.
  3. All children are capable of learning. GCISD must employ various teaching methods and materials to match the learning abilities of all students.
  4. People are the key to educational excellence. GCISD will hire and develop the very best faculty members.
  5. All people make contributions to our world. GCISD expects all members of our education community to demonstrate respect, understanding and sensitivity toward the feelings and beliefs of others.
  6. The family is the primary influence on the development of its members and society. GCISD encourages full participation of parents and care givers in their students’ education.
  7. All members of the community are necessary in the development of a child. GCISD must involve the total community in efforts to provide a top quality education for all students.

The Board of Trustees believes that the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District can and will become a premier school system in the country.
