Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, our Spanish IB students attended a very special assembly where they were able to speak with esteemed guest, Head of Supervisors of Spanish Social Media of the MLB (Major League Baseball), Daniel Guemechu.
With a brand new 2019-2020 academic year now underway, new faculty and staff have joined the DIS community to continue bring about the best possible learning environment for students and their families.
That’s a question we often hear asked to our DIS students upon returning from summer break. For one DIS senior, Nora Desmond, the summer was spent not travelling the world, suntanning on the beach, or lounging around the pool; but interning at a research lab at UT Dallas. Nora has high hopes for a career in Engineering or Computer Science, and this was the perfect opportunity for her to be immersed in the world of cutting edge research. The internship opportunity was arranged by our DIS Computer Science and Engineering department with UT Dallas and representatives from the SMU Engineering department.
At DIS, we encourage students to be as involved as possible on campus through extracurricular activities and chasing their passions wherever their interests lie. For 9th grade student athlete, Jordon Keener, sports were his calling.
