Principal's Message

Welcome to Giddings High School!

As GHS Principal, it is my honor to work with the best students and staff in the state. At Giddings High School, we don’t want to be just a great high school, we want to be the best high school in Texas, and together, we can achieve that goal. Excellence has been a tradition at GHS, and our students have earned the reputation of being winners both academically and athletically. As the future of GHS, I hope you will continue that tradition.

As current GHS students, I challenge you to get the most out of your high school experience. Aim high and commit yourself to give your best effort in everything you do. GHS offers its student many opportunities in which to achieve and excel, through organizations, academics and athletics, and I want to encourage you to get involved.

You can join one or more of GHS’s clubs and organizations, there are more than twenty to choose from, play a sport, or participate in a UIL Academic contest. Whether it is band, athletics, FFA, FCCLA, DECA, you can represent GHS proudly.

At Giddings High School, our staff also stresses to all students the importance of high achievement in the classroom and college readiness. We offer numerous Advanced Placement classes and dual-credit college courses throughout our core classes. These classes are open to all GHS students who want to challenge themselves academically.

The Future is Bright at GHS. Let’s have a great year. Go BUFFS!!!
