This letter is to inform you of exciting changes being proposed at Ball High School for the incoming freshmen class of 2015-16! In connection with the APEX2 Grant, Ball High has created four small learning communities which allow students to pursue areas of academic and career interest while achieving state endorsements and industry driven and recognized certifications. Galveston ISD students have some amazing choices ahead of them!
As we continue to implement and expand these options for our students, we have determined that a better system for aligning GPA and class rank is needed to reflect student achievement in these four learning communities. We thank you for your support of GISD schools and look forward to the next four years with your Golden Tor
Remember these changes would only affect the graduating class of 2019 and all subsequent years henceforth. All current High School students will graduate under the current GPA rating system.
