Greenville ISD is a district brimming with talented students and dedicated faculty. We lead the marketplace in the instructional practice coined product oriented education, where lessons involve students racing life-sized cardboard boats, building wax museums and erecting electric cars from lawnmower batteries. Rather than the typical “chalk and talk” pedagogy of traditional education, GISD students develop collaborative and sophisticated interpersonal talents while working on Advanced Academic Teams, Independent Study Mentorship and other avant-garde teaching systems.
Students choose from vibrant program offerings. Destination Imagination, Suzuki Strings, athletics, media tech, solar car courses, and any of our 50 dual credit courses are showcased on GISD transcripts. Class schedules are peppered with interactive opportunities designed to develop the whole child. Culinary Arts, Auto Body Shop, Fine Arts, Suzuki Strings, Horticulture, Vocational Agriculture, Naval ROTC and Robotics classes teach more than ABCs. They offer fundamental and sustainable trades and skills, deeper understandings of nuts, bolts and baking. They steer kids into lifelong passions, direct their future, and help students discover vehicles that will drive them to prosperity.
Greenville ISD is rich in spirit, tradition and community. The renowned Flaming Flashes pioneered their trade in the 1930s and our world winning robotics teams are revered nationwide. The reinvigorated Greenville Educational Enrichment Foundation engages community spirit through fundraising efforts and issuance of teacher grants. Booster clubs and Parent Teacher Associations garner additional support and businesses in the area give freely of time and resources. Moreover, the Greenville community showed endearing support recently by voting to pass a $72 Million bond that will build a new elementary school and career tech center, improve technology and security, and renovate buildings across the district.
GISD arms students with a fusion of life and educative lessons that propel them steadfastly into the global society. By educating the whole child, students leave Greenville ISD with lessons for wherever life leads.
