Education

Public

The Grapevine-Colleyville ISD meets or exceeds all national standards every year. The education of children is a huge consideration when evaluating relocation and the GCISD is most definitely an area draw. Our students surpass state exam standards yearly and we have nine campuses that are rated Exemplary and eleven that have been named National Blue Ribbon schools.

  • Four GCISD schools have been named to the 2011 National Center for Education Achievement's Higher Performing Schools List. Those schools are Colleyville Heritage High School, Colleyville Middle School, O.C. Taylor Elementary and Timberline Elementary.
