    So happy with the school for both my freshman daughter in marching band and my sophomore son in AP. The staff us professional and supportive.

    My son just started his Freshman year at George Ranch. We moved to Richmond from Houston specifically for this school and I am so glad we did! I am so impressed with this school. The look of the campus is impressive enough but the attitude of the staff and the teachers is what I am most impressed with! My son came from a very small private school so moving to a big public high school was scary for both of us. Both my son and I could not be more happy! I highly recommend George Ranch High School!

    I am proud to be affiliated with GRHS. Our principal is a natural leader. She runs the school like a business. She is a careful steward of taxpayers' resources and her employees. I am never in doubt about what is expected of me. She enforces discipline at school and our students are never in doubt about the respect that they should show our teachers. In turn our principal is sensitive to the needs of our students. She expects her teachers to do the same. Our most recent TAKS scores were superb and we are very proud of our students for their performance. As a new school the focus is on involving ALL students in some form of school activity. This is an AWESOME new school (it opened in 2010 - 2011) that has great technology. Our Superintendent has really supported the faculty and staff as we get this great school up and running. I have high-school children myself and I would be thrilled for them to attend GRHS!

    This is a beautiful school. The grandness and ambience of the school is Texan in every way. The decor is vibrant in colors of red white and blue and the state's emblems are located throughout the offices big hallways and high ceilings of the school. Also the staff is just what you expect -- friendly welcoming and always ready to offer you a smile and a cup of coffee.
