Garza Independence High School provides an award-winning educational program that offers students personalized pathways to graduation through self-paced curriculum.

Garza is a school of choice for any student with 10 or more credits who has completed two full years of high school. Students may apply at any time, whether they are enrolled in school or are returning after time away.

Garza fosters a community of independence that empowers learners to achieve their greatest potential in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust. The school challenges every student to learn, grow and prepare for a successful future today.

The U.S. Department of Education recognizes Garza among about 40 schools in the country that exemplify the best practices for improving outcomes for at-risk students.

An early leader in 21st-century learning, Garza has pioneered AISD’s online educational opportunities. Throughout the district, high school students may earn select credits from Garza online with the permission of their home campus.

After students complete the graduation requirements to earn a high school diploma, the Garza community comes together to celebrate their accomplishments at a cheer-filled Star Walk through the school.
