Thousands attend Discover Dallas ISD school shopping experience


More than 1,300 families—and about 4,000 total people—took a big step toward finding their dream school at the Discover Dallas ISD school shopping experience held Nov. 3 in Downtown Dallas.

Discover Dallas ISD featured representatives from 60 district schools that offer specialty programs such as magnets, Montessori, single-gender and collegiate academies. The district designed the user-friendly, customer-service rich experience with parents in mind.

“I appreciate how Discover puts all these different schools with outstanding programs conveniently under one roof,” said Rachel Castillo, a mother of a young child who will attend first-grade next year. “This is a very worthwhile way to spend a Saturday morning.”
