Principal's Message


Dear GEO Community,

It's a new year, and we are excited to continue to see learning and leadership growth for all students during the second semester! Our teachers work hard to provide engaging lessons that include cooperative learning and language proficiency practice. GEO is also committed to preparing students for post secondary success through enrichment opportunities offered during club time and job shadowing trips to help students consider possible career options. GEO International has incorporated Leader in Me this year, and we are looking forward to seeing students in charge of their own learning experiences.

Throughout the month of January, our students will complete ACCESS testing, a state assessment for language proficiency. Student attendance is important to the completion of ACCESS testing, so please let us know if we can help your student. We are here to assist in any way that we can. 

Parents and families are always welcome at GEO. If there is anything we can do to help, please feel free to visit our school or call us at 270-904-3691.

We are looking forward to a great second semester!
