The Primary Years Program is planned to be offered in "two or three" of the Woodrow elementary feeder schools according to our foundation filings. It will probably be four years until that happens after it is rolled down to J.L. Long Middle School in two years.

I would expect that it will go to Lakewood since those parents are most adept at raising money (they've given Woodrow $12,000 for I.B. already) Stonewall would be a good guess for number two. There is already talk that the competition for third school would be between Lipscomb (exemplary for several years) and Mount Auburn (usually exemplary but missed by a couple of students last year). However, recognized Robert E. Lee has more room.

DISD will have an IB program at Woodrow Wilson High School. They are in the application process now.
I believe that Peak Prep on Live Oak has an Elementary IB program. This school is a charter school and has a lottery to get in.

Actually Woodrow is one of four IB World Candidate Schools in the state of Texas (this is the next-to-the-last step of a two-year process):

TIBS Members

Pre-IB classes for ninth graders will be offered next fall. Parental Public School Choice Applications will be taken this spring for eighth grade students outside the WW attendance zone to transfer in for IB.

For PYP only North Hills (Irving) and Good (Carrollton) Elementaries currently offer the program. St. Anthony in South Dallas is a candidate school.

Original Poster - you stated that you would be 30 miles from Dallas. Where exactly are you going to live? You may be closer than you think to ideal IB schools.

Westlake Academy and North Hills Preparatory are both have the Primary Years Program, Middle Years Program and the Diploma Program~~~grades k-12.

Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD has serveral schools with IB programs. Las Colinas Elementary (Irving section of district), Good Elementary(Carrollton section of district), Bush Middle School (Coppell/Irving side), Ranchview H.S. (Irving side)

There may be a few more elementary but these are definites.

Do you know if everyone in the Lakewood school district would have equal opportunity of attending the MYP, or would those in the district of the neighborhood school chosen (Lakewood, or Stonewall, etc) have first chance at it and the other areas lottery in?

Not that the answer matters too much I guess, since apparently it's not known where it will be so I can't plan around that!

I don't really know about that - I'm glad you brought it up because I really haven't heard it discussed. I will ask around.

As far as the program at Woodrow next fall, applications for transfer are being taken for those outside the attendance zone - to be filed this spring for 2010-11 year - but those already in the attendance zone "will be accomodated first" according to the material I have seen.
