Garden Ridge Elementary Home

Welcome to Garden Ridge Elementary

Families and Friends of GRES,
 
I want to welcome you and your family to Garden Ridge Elementary, home of the Bobcats!  I have been in education for 15 years and I am in my 6th year at GRES. I am honored to serve as the principal of this amazing school.     
 
At Garden Ridge Elementary, we have skillful and compassionate teachers and staff who focus on creating classroom activities that engage our students in learning.  Our mission is to help every child feel welcome, connected, and a part of the GRES family.  Together, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities and to be college-ready when they graduate from Comal ISD. 
 
We have a very strong PTA program and throughout the year we have multiple opportunities for family members to volunteer at our school.  We hope to see you around campus.  As partners in your child’s education, we encourage you to communicate with us regularly with any successes/questions/concerns that you may have.
 
 
Let’s make this a great year! 
 
With Bobcat Pride,
Jennifer Schultz
Principal
