Dear Parents, Students, and Colleagues,

The month of December is upon us and a new year is fast approaching.  Students at GECHS will be taking their End Of Course Exams and are ready to take on the challenge.  They will meet it because they are determined to excel and I am certain that with the students’ diligence and hard work, they will be successful.   Now, the holidays are to rest and recharge in order to take on any new challenges the new semester may bring. 

Personally, I want to thank each and everyone one of you for your support throughout the year.  2017 leaves us with great accomplishments, one of them being the honor and distinction to be named as a National Blue Ribbon School by the U. S. Department of Education.  The Hector J. Garcia Early College High School was one of 342 nationwide schools that received this most coveted award.  We are elated to receive this recognition because of the job we do daily.  It validates our mission to prepare our students for their future.

  Parents, you are the accelerant of our drive to continue to provide the best for all our students.  Teachers, you are the driving force that keeps the engine of our vision and mission of our campus in a steady pace to succeed.  Students, you are the engine that we fine-tune to exceed and excel in all endeavors.

We will continue to provide the support and guidance to help all our students achieve their goals. With great enthusiasm and a warm heart, the Faculty, Staff, and Administration at the Hector J. Garcia Early College High School wish you a restful and joyful holiday season.




Israel Castilla,
