Dallas International School:
Located in North Dallas, Dallas County, Texas, Dallas International School offers private, accredited education for students from preschool through high school in English and French and belongs to the Mission Laique Francaise school network. Dallas International School was the first private school in Dallas to offer accredited bilingual and multilingual curriculums oriented towards the French Baccalaureate and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programs. We believe students must be prepared for all domestic and international higher educational institutions and have a mastery of critical thinking and problem solving to compete in our dynamic world.
Our core philosophy of principles that guides our policies and goals focuses on the students’ ability to learn academically, physically, and emotionally. We promote an environment that is classical in education, disciplined in work, respectful of institution, physical in activity, and innovative in spirit. Students are evaluated at least three times a year to help teachers and parents individually adapt instruction style and academic goals.
We believe in creating a learning environment where students are challenged to excel with academic purpose. We believe that education in the early formative years must be familial, encouraging, and small in classroom size. We believe that as students progress within three-year cycles, confidence in their language, math, and science skills builds. As this confidence builds, students become more aware that knowledge imparted has purpose in an innovative world. Although testing is classical and rigorous, the governing pedagogical board maintains a unique flexibility to adapt additional coursework as the marketplace and universities demand.
Dallas International School belongs to the Mission Laïque Française school network along with 70 other schools around the world promoting the French language and multiculturalism.
Dallas International School is also a member of the Independent Schools Association of the Southwest, and the Association of French Schools in America — a network that has 40 schools across the United States.

Our world has become global. As your children grow, they will not only be citizens of their own country, but of the world. As citizens of this new "global country," they will need new skills. They will face daily challenges that you as parents may not have experienced — understanding, communicating and working among other cultures to learn from and succeed through increasingly international relationships. Both the children of families native to Dallas and those who have made North Texas their home need to learn to become global citizens.
At Dallas International School we educate our students with these new challenges in mind, by:
* Following the principle that to really master a language you have to study the culture that goes with it.
* Teaching in two languages: French and English.
* Teaching other languages: Spanish and Chinese.
* Incorporating the best aspects of the American School System.
* Basing its pedagogy on the French model.
After such a strong education, DIS students will have the skills to continue their studies at universities in the United States or abroad and launch a professional career which will take advantage of all the opportunities created by globalization. They will also be prepared to bloom into adulthood with such qualities as tolerance, intellectual curiosity and generosity.
