Way over-rated. It once was a blue ribbon school, but not anymore . Poor college prep programs. The teachers are doing their best with a "skeleton crew " due to how poor this district has become. The board thought they could save GHS by sending all the poor kids to Eastview, but it hasn't helped. ...  Read more

You PAY, ...  Read more

School district and especially the high school have taken a dramatic turn for the worse in the last 3 years. Administration places very little emphasis on preparing the kids for life after high school. Little discipline or high standards. Very disappointed in the education my two kids received.

crowded, they have a great new building, but only for 9th graders,,,,guess football is more important than academics. Sports are great, but in Georgetown, its sports or die.

I was a student at Georgetown High School and I had a chance to get to know some of the best teachers in the world there. However I did encounter some problems with the administration.

I have been very impressed with Randy Wiesenger as he is very knowledgeable and maintains an open door policy with all of the parents. The administrative team was very helpful to us as parents.

We moved to Gtown from the Austin area, where our sons attended private school until 8th grade. We visited several area school districts before finding Gtown right up the road. The principals and counselors were friendly, honest and helpful. They are truly committed to educating EVERY child, not just ...  Read more
