Gus Winston Cain Elementary students are game ready for Success!

Gus Winston Cain Elementary is set in a small town adjacent to the Rose Capital of the United States, specifically in Whitehouse, TX. Whitehouse ISD is recognized for its commitment to students' high academic achievements, family atmosphere, and small town traditions. Gus Winston Cain Elementary lives its vision wholeheartedly and with the belief that failure is not an option. This mindset drives us daily in doing whatever it takes with the belief that each of our students will leave Cain Elementary on or above grade level in reading, writing, and math and well on the road to college. Every student has the right to be educated in a way that prepares them for college and beyond.

Ensuring that every student has the opportunity to be college-ready requires dedication, commitment, and of universal achievement. One way Cain Elementary embraces this culture is evident by simply walking our hallways. You will find college symbols at every turn immersing students in the reality that college is attainable for all students. We believe we have the power to influence every student to be academically successful.

The success of Cain's students and staff is rooted in five core systems: Collaboration, Standards Alignment, Intervention, Assessment, and Data Analysis. In our school's efforts to establish an ever-improving culture of universal achievement, we work daily to build and improve our systems and routines for meeting the needs of every child.

All staff members have made the joint commitment to the academic success of all students, and we refuse to accept defeat.
