Since it opened 20 years ago, Dallas ISD’s Anne Frank Elementary School became the biggest elementary school in Texas at one point, serving about 1,400 students. It was also the first school named after Anne Frank in the country, and the first named after a child in the state.
Last month, current and former students, and staff and members of the community celebrated the school’s 20th anniversary in conjunction with its annual Cultural Diversity Night. The evening included a reenactment of the opening ceremony at the school 20 years ago, a world cultural parade, a diverse food court, cultural museum, musical performances and artifacts displayed from the school’s history.
Anne Frank Elementary School is in North Dallas in the Hillcrest High School feeder pattern.
