Two Dallas ISD elementary schools get IB designation | Dallas Morning News 6/10/15

"Robert E. Lee and Lipscomb elementary schools have earned International Baccalaureate designation, providing a pathway from elementary to high school for the lauded program in Dallas ISD.

Both schools are part of the J.L. Long Middle School and Woodrow Wilson High School feeder pattern. Long and Woodrow already have the IB designation.

Lee and Lipscomb are in the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme for students ages 3 to 12"

And if you don't like your neighborhood elementary and you are in the Long/Woodrow feeder pattern, you can apply for transfer to Mata Montessori. Similarly, I believe if you are in this feeder pattern, you can apply for IB at Lee or Lipscomb. If there are extra spaces, then those from outside the feeder pattern may apply.

Prospect of a Mata Montessori draws families, questions

But in a few big cities with lots of inequality, like Dallas/Preston Hollow, that equation doesn't hold, as you say... and it just seems a little funny that so many people don't worry too much about paying a whole bunch of taxes to DISD for schools that they would never use in a million years... But I suppose it seems normal for people who are used to it. In that area I suppose that both private tuition and DISD tax amount to trivial expenses, hardly worth bothering about.
Well, we live there and property taxes + tuition aren't exactly "trivial" by any stretch. But it is cheaper than paying the mortgage and taxes on a house in HPISD (comprable education).
