GISD Advanced Academics
As a result of education summits that brought together parents, students, teachers, business leaders, and community members to determine the desired skills and characteristics of a Georgetown learner, our Georgetown ISD Learner Profile was conceived. Our advanced academics programs and course offerings have been designed with this Learner Profile in mind, challenging every learner at an appropriate level, and stretching every individual to reach his or her full potential.
Why enroll in advanced courses?
All students in GISD are provided opportunities to develop the skills in the GISD Learner Profile, but students in advanced courses experience challenging learning opportunities on a daily basis that often push them outside of their comfort zones and into the zone of innovation. Additionally, there is a direct correlation between the rigor of courses taken in high school and the successful completion of a college degree.
Does advanced coursework simply mean more work?
Although this is a common misconception, advanced courses do not necessarily require more work from students; however, they do require students to explore and study subject matter with more depth and more complexity.
What advanced academics opportunities does GISD offer?
GISD offers a gifted/talented program, pre-Advanced Placement courses, Advanced Placement courses, dual credit courses, and a variety of enrichment opportunities for its students, from UIL to SeaPerch.
