GISD’s Middle School Realignment – Nearly One Year in Review

In November 2021, after months of meetings, Galveston community members recommended to GISD’s Board of Trustees a new middle school alignment in an effort to unify students within their grade levels and designate specific campuses to grade-level specific initiatives.

The Board approved, and in 2022 the three middle schools - then Collegiate, Central, and Austin - were reorganized into a 5th-grade campus that now exists at Weis, a 6th-grade campus at Austin, and a combined 7th and 8th-grade campus at Central.
