Parents may go to www.granburyisd.org/zones in order to determine the school that their child will be attending for grades PK-8. 

STARS Accelerated High School will begin accepting applications for new students for the new school year on Monday, July 15.  There will be Open Campus for all students and parents on Monday, August 12 from 1:00-4:00 P.M. 

For all returning students previously enrolled in GISD, the Skyward online registration process will begin in late July or early August.  A date will be announced later.

Enrollment for new GISD students in grades 9-12 at Granbury High School will be Wednesday, July 31 and Thursday, August 1 from 8:30 A.M.-12:30 P.M. 

For returning students, registration will be completed online through Skyward similar to last year.  Class schedules will be available once the parent completes this online process. 

Students may purchase parking permits for assigned spaces on Wednesday, August 7 from 9:00 A.M. until 12:00 P.M. and Thursday, August 8 from 1:00-4:00 P.M.  All student parking will be in Lot E (in back of school by the Career and Technical Education Center) or Lot F (next to Tidwell Field baseball stadium).  The fee is $40, and students and families must have completed the online registration process and not have any textbook, supply, or fee holds in order to obtain a permit.  Students must bring their valid driver’s license, current proof of insurance, license plate number, and vehicle description. 

Freshman Orientation will be Tuesday, August 6 from 4-7pm with administrators, teachers, and student council members leading the new high school students through a campus tour and overview of procedures and other important information.  This will be like a mock “first day of school,” and there will be separate sessions for parents.  Both students and parents are invited to attend for the entire time period.
