Class Trips

Dallas International School organizes trips to give its students an opportunity to enhance and support their curriculum. Being an international school, the trips organized often comprise visits to foreign countries, such as Canada, France, and a Spanish-speaking destination. In 2012, the 8th grade students took a special trip to Washington, D.C. to attend the inauguration of President Obama. These trips aid in teaching the students the history, geography, diversity and cultural traditions of other peoples and promote an understanding of other nations that follows the mission of Dallas International School.

List of 3 items.

  • Canada

    Every year during the month of March the third grade classes take a trip to Montreal, Canada where they are immersed in a French language environment while learning first-hand about native wildlife, winter activities, and cultural traditions of the native Indians who originally inhabited the area.

    A wide range of activities await the students at “La Base Plein air des Laurentides”, the center near Montreal where they stay. Dog sledding, cross-country skiing, snow- shoeing and ice fishing are some of the outdoor adventures they experience. The group of youngsters also learns how maple syrup is made and how to track animals by their footprints. Special games and workshops focus on the customs of the indigenous people of the area.

    The classes return with not only new experiences, an enriched knowledge of the native cultures, and an increased capability with the French language, but also with a stronger sense of camaraderie with their classmates and teachers.
  • Quebec City

    To enrich the curriculum at the 5th grade level, a trip to Quebec City is undertaken in the spring of each year.
  • Washington, D.C.

    DIS 8th grade students took a special trip to Washington D.C. to attend the Presidential Inauguration in 2012.  This trip was such a great success that DIS has continued to organize annual visits to visit the many of the historical and cultural sites of the area.
