CityLab High School Advisory Board

The mission of the CityLab High School Advisory Board is to advocate for and support CityLab High School, a new open enrollment Transformation School under the Dallas ISD Public School Choice initiative. Located in downtown Dallas, the school engages students in Architecture, Environmental Science, Urban Planning, Public Policy, and Community Development as possible career options, all while exploring and using the city as a laboratory for learning. Working alongside the campus leadership team, the Advisory Board aims to foster community involvement through mentorship, enrichment programming, internship programs, and innovation & entrepreneurship initiatives. In addition, we raise funds for the school to amplify the impact of public dollars through subsidizing enhancements to the school's academic and extracurricular activities, assisting with student needs, contributing to teacher development, improving facilities, providing access to innovative technology and fulfill our prime long-term goal to enable full student scholarships for qualifying students. When you donate to the CityLab High School Advisory Board, you are contributing to the school's mission to create opportunities for students to become the next generation of engaged citizens, empowered design professionals and compassionate civic leaders ready to participate in the development of tomorrows' city. http://dallasisd.org/citylabhs This entity is currently a fund with Communities Foundation of Texas.
