JG Consulting has engaged with the Garland Independent School District to recruit qualified candidates to serve as the Rowlett High School Principal.
Opening its doors in 1996, Rowlett High School is the pride of the city of Rowlett, Texas. Rowlett is a growing city of over 50,000 people along the shores of Lake Ray Hubbard. Exceptional student achievement, a high student attendance rate, powerful athletic teams, and superior fine arts programs characterize the home of the Eagles. RHS has been recognized by US News and World Report as a top American High School. It enjoys a spirited rivalry with another GISD school, Sachse High School. The winner of the annual football game between Rowlett and Sachse is awarded the Hammer Trophy, which the winning school retains and displays during the year.
Incorporated in 1891, the city of Garland is home to more than 236,000 residents, making it the fifth largest city in the DFW Metroplex and twelfth largest in Texas. In spite of its large population, residents value Garland’s small-town feel and outstanding city services. The city of Garland prides itself on the strength of its diverse neighborhoods and offers residents the best of both urban and suburban living. Offering a wide range of housing options, Garland communities include apartments, condos, starter, luxury, and custom homes. The quaint downtown square, which includes a fountain plaza, tree-canopied walkways and shaded rest areas, offers residents and visitors a place where they can come together as a community. Garland is a diverse city working hard to preserve its traditional charm, while advancing into the future. Part of this effort is Garland’s Strategy for Vital Neighborhoods, a groundbreaking plan to encourage development and revitalization.
When it comes to education, parents trust the Garland Independent School District. Garland ISD serves the growing DFW Metroplex communities of Garland, Rowlett and Sachse. Garland ISD is the fourth largest district in the Metroplex and the 10th largest in Texas, but despite its size, remains dedicated to quality teaching for every individual student. One of the district’s most popular advantages is that parents are able to choose the campus they wish to have their child attend. The “Choice of School” period takes place each year in January for the following school year. Each year, between 97% and 98% of GISD students receive their first choice school! All GISD teachers and high school students are issued an iPad.
Garland residents currently enjoy five recreation facilities, four swimming pools, Hawaiian Falls Water Park, a 13-court tennis center, 40 playgrounds, two senior centers, over 2880 acres of parks, a preserve, 73 athletic fields, three greenbelts, 20 miles of trails and beautiful Lake Ray Hubbard. The city also owns the Firewheel Golf Park, a state-of-the-art, 63-hole golf facility consistently ranked as one of the top golf venues in the state.
