J. L. Long Middle School, which feeds into Woodrow, was accredited as an IB World School in March. It has been using the MYP curriculum for two years as a candidate school. Earlier this year I know that 85% of the teachers had been IB-trained. Current planning is for Robert E. Lee and Lipscomb elementaries (Long/Woodrow feeders) to begin the IB application process (takes around 3 years). Also in the WW feeder pattern is Mata Montessori, opening this fall. Mata is planning to apply for international Montessori certification http://ami-global.org/.

We have an excellent area administrator, Tracie Fraley, who is former Booker T. Washington principal. She and school trustee Mike Morath have worked diligently with the Woodrow Community Council and Woodrow Foundation to implement strategic planning.

Woodrow graduated its first IB class last Saturday. They have currently have 75 slots for IB for the freshmen coming in this fall. Applications were made in February.

I don't know about Franklin and Hillcrest but I heard an elementary (was it Kramer?) in their feeder pattern wants to apply for IB PYP.

As far as I know, RISD has no IB schools.

Lakewooder,

What's your source that Mata will apply for AMI certification ? If true, why hasn't DISD done the same for Dealey or Stone?

The dirt is going for more than $600k in HP/UP now.

The board has apparently approved IB for HHS, Franklin, and Preston Hollow Elementary ( Is IB enough to sway the attitude toward public schools in Preston Hollow? » Advocate Magazine)

I question the logic of opening a second IB school neighboring the attendance zone of the existing IB school. It seems ludicrous to put another IB school at another over-capacity northern Dallas school, but apparently IB is Morath's pet issue while other trustees don't care. The 'trustee micromanagement' criticism of DISD is generally targeted at the trustees for districts 5, 6, and 9, but in the past 3 years Morath has if anything been tge worst offender.
