Hello Parents, Guardians, and Students,

I am Mr. Reese, the principal at Wallace High School.

Wallace is many things to many different people, but our campus is really designed to provide options and opportunity for our students. For example, some students are more comfortable in a small, self-paced setting. Some students need to catch up on their credits in order to return to a traditional campus. Some students wish to graduate early and choose to accelerate their progress at Wallace. Whatever a student’s reason is for choosing Wallace, we do our best to support their goals. Wallace just may be the option for you.

Wallace isn’t a discipline campus. Our students enroll here because they choose to. This is not a campus for “the bad kids,” or more appropriately, kids who have made some bad choices. However, Wallace does, sometimes, provide a clean slate for students who wish to take ownership of their learning and who seek an alternative environment.

Wallace uses a computer-based curriculum, in which students work at their own pace. Typically, we expect normal to accelerated progression through the curriculum. Students at Wallace are not exempt from STAAR tests. Students at Wallace may earn the 22 credit hour Foundation Diploma or work toward the 26 credit hour diploma with a focus on multi-disciplinary studies. With a 22 credit hour diploma, students may join military or start out at a two-year college. Students with plans to start out at a four-year college will need to pursue the 26 credit hour diploma.

What should you expect from your Wallace experience? Many do not realize the challenge associated with taking ownership of one’s education. At Wallace, students are responsible for their pace, self-discipline, self-motivation, and self-control. Working without a teacher is not for everyone; therefore, Wallace is not going to be a perfect fit for every student. Students who cannot work independently elsewhere may find Wallace to be more challenging than expected.

We welcome students who wish to take ownership of their learning and who have plans and goals for success.

Believe – Achieve –Succeed

To provide a student-centered environment that cultivates character, promotes academic excellence, and embraces diversity. Students will achieve their maximum potential and become productive citizens that provide a lasting contribution to our society.
