Gary W. Campbell High School 









Gary W. Campbell High School is the alternative school for Kaufman School District. Our accelerated curriculum allows students to complete graduation requirements at their own pace and provides an opportunity for them to graduate within four years of starting high school. Using a combination of online and teacher based instruction, GCHS provides students with a comprehensive, standards-based curriculum designed to meet each individual student’s needs. A low teacher to student ratio and individualized instruction helps to insure student achievement. All students wishing to attend GCHS must submit an application through the counselor on their home campus.

School Messenger - New District Wide Notification System


Kaufman Independent School District is pleased to announce that the district is implementing a new district-wide notification system called School Messenger. Our current system, Flash Alert, ended their services to area school districts on July 1, 2015. The School Messenger notification service is trusted to deliver large volumes of messages through several channels.


How can I subscribe to receive text messages?

  • Text the word, subscribe, to 68453.Please note that while we are excited to offer a text messaging option, the district does not pay for any text message fees you may be charged by your cellular provider.
  • 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.
