Gary W. Campbell High School is the alternative school for Kaufman Independent School District. Our flexible learning environment allows students to obtain an accelerated diploma by allowing them to complete graduation requirements in our self-paced program. Using a combination of online and classroom-based instruction, GCHS provides students with a comprehensive, standards-based curriculum designed to meet each individual student’s needs. A low student-to-teacher ratio and individualized instruction helps to ensure student achievement. Any student wishing to attend GCHS must submit an application through the counselor on their home campus.
This small town girl has big dreams. When asked about her intent to compete and attend at Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Andrea said, "The offer--I can't believe it. It's an honor and I'm excited to go and be something. I'm going to major in Pre-med. I've heard it's going to be hard." As a long-term staple on the KHS Girls XC Team, Andrea knows the reward(s) for working hard and the doors that hard work and perseverance can open. Surrounded by a support circle of family, friends, coaches, and administrators, Andrea celebrates her intent to run and attend OLLU this fall. CONGRATULATIONS, Andrea! #KISDLions
ExxonMobil has awarded 1.8 million dollars in grants across the U.S. this year to schools to enhance math and science education. This is the 13th consecutive year for the program. Borders & Long worked with Kaufman ISD Administrators at Monday Primary, Phillips Elementary, Nash Intermediate, O.P. Norman Jr High, Kaufman High School and Gary Campbell High School to complete the paperwork and secure the grants. Each school received $500 and will determine how the funds are used for math and science programs.

School Messenger - District Wide Notification System
Kaufman ISD participates in an alert system called School Messenger for emergency communications using electronic media, computers, and cell phones as the communication tools. This system allows the District to communicateemergencies, like weather closings, to subscribers directly to their home computers or personal cell phones. School Messenger notification service is trusted to deliver large volumes of messages through several channels.
How can I subscribe to receive text messages?

For this feature to work, your child's school must have your cell phone number on file. You can use the newly added Skylert tab in the Family Access Portal of Skyward to view your child's contact information.
