Giesinger Elementary is a Title I suburban school in the greater Houston region with primarily White, Hispanic, and African American students from economically disadvantaged to affluent families who live in neighborhoods, apartments and rural areas.
A keystone of Giesinger’s success is teachers and administrators using data-driven, differentiated instruction. In Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), teachers analyze real-time data to develop intervention and enrichment instructional plans to meet the needs of each student. Both teachers and students recognize their strengths and weaknesses while gaining ownership of their learning.
Parent and community support are crucial to Giesinger’s success. Role models such as the WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students), partnerships with the university, volunteers, and community involvement positively impact student success at Giesinger.
Giesinger Elementary was a Texas Title I Part A Distinguished School from 2010 - 2013 and received TEA "exemplary" ratings from 2009-2011.
