The school curriculum follows the academic program laid out by the French Ministry of National Education and used in French schools throughout the world. The French curriculum is supplemented by the advanced elements from the American private-school education. This dual approach produces academically-adept, bilingual students, proficient in both English and French, who can easily matriculate into either the French or the American educational systems. The blending of the French and American educational systems distinguishes the education offered at Dallas International School, and creates graduates who have a deep understanding of both the European and the American education and culture – a sound combination superior to either alternative.
