Discover Dallas ISD and find the best-fit school for your child!


Dallas ISD offers something for every student. From innovation at its best to exceptional academics, exciting extracurricular and after-school opportunities, and safe learning environments, the district has a school or program for every child. 

The district is rapidly becoming a district of choice where every child can find a school that best fits their unique interests, needs and aspirations. The academic options offered are as diverse as the learners themselves, and many of the top-tier programs offered at Dallas area private schools can be found in Dallas ISD.

“The academic success of every student is important, and Dallas ISD wants to be the first educational choice for families throughout the area,” said Superintendent of Schools Michael Hinojosa.

Now is the time to discover Dallas ISD—home to excellent neighborhood schools and more than 100 choice schools and specialty programs that prepare students for success now and in the future. 

Families are invited to join the virtual Discover Dallas ISD on Saturday, Nov. 6 at 10 a.m., to learn more about the options offered in the district. 

The district is proud to offer specialty school choice programs and models for students in all grades. The options include programs such as Montessori, International Baccalaureate, Talented and Gifted, Single Gender, Two-Way Dual Language, STEM/STEAM, Visual And Performing Arts, P-Tech/Early College High Schools, Career Institutes, Collegiate Academies, and much more.

At the high school level, students have an opportunity to get ahead and begin preparing for their college education. Incoming freshmen students can begin gaining valuable experience in a professional pathway of their choice where they can simultaneously earn 60 hours of tuition-free college credits and a high school diploma.

In addition to many open-enrollment schools of choice, Dallas ISD offers a variety of choice programs and models at neighborhood schools similar to those offered at Transformation Schools and Magnets. Offerings at neighborhood schools include computer science, robotics, single-gender models, exploratory arts programs, dual-language and much more.

Students at choice schools/programs consistently perform at or above the level of their peers. In addition to strong academic options, students who attend choice schools can attend after-school/extracurricular activities, and free transportation is provided for students who reside two or more miles from their choice school.
