Welcome to Gatesville Junior High! I am looking forward to working with each of you as the year progresses. Our goal is to ensure that each of our students receives the best education possible. It is our hope that your child will look forward to school each day, as well as the opportunities for academic and social growth. We have a fantastic group of students at Gatesville, along with a supportive community that wants the very best for our students. We encourage all parents/guardians to take an active part in the education of the students at Gatesville Junior High. We feel that when there is a connection between home and school, the students will have a much greater chance of reaching their potential.
