At DIS we focus on making our vision and mission the core of our daily work with students, teachers and parents. Multilingualism and bi-literacy play key roles at the school, advocating the positive impact of robust multicultural disciplines in fostering academic excellence, cultural diversity and human values that would position students to become life-long learners, healthy and productive individuals. DIS also maintains small class sizes in all programs to ensure students have a supportive learning environment and a great deal of personal attention.
From preschool through 12th grade, DIS students are introduced to a global perspective through our unique multilingual and multicultural academic programs. Students grow in an international environment and challenge themselves, explore their creativity and increase their confidence and metacognitive skills as they learn in two or more languages.
Dallas International School follows the French national academic curriculum and the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills guidelines in primary and middle school. In high school, students choose one of two baccalaureate programs – the French baccalaureate or the International baccalaureate – for their final two years. Both programs are rigorous, worldwide pre-university courses that meet the needs of highly motivated high school students.
