INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE STUDENT PROGRAM
Dallas International School partners with the AEFE, MLF, and IBO offering a global network of schools to send students on exchange trips around the globe. DIS also welcomes students from other countries to Dallas to immerse in our community and in American culture. DIS students travel to Spain, France, Taiwan, and the many other locations that are available to them. Their host brother or sister then comes to Dallas.
The PSAT/NMSQT (National Merit Scholars Qualifying Test) is a standardized test that DIS offers to 10th and 11th grade students. Students may elect to participate in the SAT Prep Program that is offered at the School.
In addition, the National Merit Scholarship Program uses these scores to qualify eligible students.
By taking AP Exams and scoring successfully, students can save on college expenses: most colleges and universities nationwide offer college credits, advanced placement, or both, for qualifying AP Exam scores.
Dallas International School offers students from 9th to 12th grade the possibility to take AP Exams if they wish to do so. Even though we are not an AP school, we recognize the benefit for our students to take these exams.
The SAT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions.
Dallas International School offers the possibility to students to take the SAT test in school on a weekday. This enables students to take the test in a familiar environment, making it less stressful and giving them the best chance of success.
