High School Curriculum
High School, called Lycée in France, starts in 10th grade and is a three-year course. Dallas International School offers two different tracks: the French Bac track and the International Baccalaureate track. Dallas International School is the only private school in the Dallas area to offer the French Baccalaureate Program.
Although the school day is very demanding, French high schools in the U.S. offer activities as students’ schedules and faculty resources permit, such as soccer, volleyball, yearbook, or science club.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program is a comprehensive and challenging pre-university course that demands the best from both motivated students and teachers. The sophisticated two-year curriculum covers a wide range of academic subjects and has stood the test of time for over half a million students in 119 countries since 1968. IB Diploma Program graduates are welcomed by the world’s leading universities.
Dallas International School is the only private school in Dallas to offer high school students the choice of the French Baccalaureate or International Baccalaureate Diploma program and has been accredited by the prestigious IB organization since 2007. The program is taught in English by a team of certified teachers who are experienced in multilingual and multicultural settings, thus guaranteeing it is truly an international school in Dallas. DIS International Baccalaureate students receive college credit or placement for much of their course work, as well as experience in a collegiate learning environment.
