Please do not cut through businesses to get into line. It is illegal and can result in a fine. Do not block business entrances.

Lower School drop-off begins at 7:15 and ends promptly at 7:40. If you enter the parking lot after 7:40, you will need to park and walk your students to be signed in at the front desk. It is unsafe to let your students out in the Green Line without teachers present. On full days, Lower School student pick-up begins at 3:15 and ends at 3:40. On early-release Fridays, pick-up begins at 1:20 and ends at 1:45. All students must be picked up by these times unless they are enrolled in an after-school activity. A charge may be incurred for students picked up late. The White Line must turn right out of the parking lot.

College Counselor News: GPA

To understand Grade Point Average (GPA), it is important to know how they are measured. The scale is either weighted, considers course difficulty, or unweighted. At Great Hearts Irving, we have an Honors Curriculum, weighted on a 5.0 scale. Students may obtain over a 4.0 GPA, which speaks to the rigor of our program.
Coffee with the Headmaster

Openings remain for the Eleventh grade Coffee with the Upper School Headmaster  tomorrow, Wednesday, October 9 at 8:00 a.m. To sign up, please click  here.
