The West Dallas STEM School, a Dallas ISD campus serving the West Dallas community, opened its doors in 2021 to serve 7th and 8th grade and has since added a 50/50 transformation school for pre-K through 6th grade. Through a generous multi-million-dollar investment from Toyota USA Foundation, the school completed its Phase 1 development and is now moving to Phase 2. Beyond offering a STEM program, the school is becoming a hub for the community in bringing together nonprofits to address community needs and systemic inequities. This program will feature this innovative community school model, led by SMU’s Budd Center, and how its collective impact effort is working towards systemic transformation within the 75212 ZIP code.

  1. It is the best time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy.
    I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you few
    interesting things or advice. Perhaps you
    can write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read even more things
    about it!

  2. I’m not that much of a online reader to
    be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back in the
    future. Cheers

  3. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog
    that’s equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few people
    are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.
