Middle School Realignment Information
At the November 17, 2021 Galveston Independent School District board of trustees meeting, trustees voted to realign the middle school experience for GISD students.
Beginning with the 2022-23 school year:
- Fifth-grade students will attend the Weis campus at 7100 Stewart Road
- Sixth-grade students will attend the Austin campus at 1514 Avenue N 1/2
- Seventh and eighth-grade students will attend the Central Middle School campus at 3014 Sealy Avenue
This transformation is being undertaken with the belief that student outcomes will be improved. We value community input and realize that there will be questions along the way. This webpage will be updated with frequently asked questions and answers. If you would like to submit a question, please do so at MSquestions@gisd.org.
