Primary and secondary schools

South Dallas is within the Dallas Independent School District. The section is served by the following schools:

Elementary schools (multiple campuses)
  • Charles Rice Learning Center, located in the Queen City area of South Dallas in a red brick, two story building[2]
    • In 2015 Eric Nicholson of the Dallas Observer stated that Rice is "generally regarded by parents as" the best elementary school in South Dallas.[3] According to Nicholson, "regard Charles Rice as a local gem, but its reputation for quality doesn't extend much further than that" partly due to the school's high level of student poverty and partly due to the poor reputation of South Dallas.[4] The school, which as of 2015 had 98% of its students designated as having free or reduced lunch (a marker of being poor), had the highest 2013-2015 School Effectiveness Index (SEI), an internal DISD school index that determines how well a school is performing relative to its community demographics.[4] Nicholson wrote in March 2016 that the SEI ranking "perennially puts Charles Rice neck and neck with [Lakewood Elementary in the Lakewood neighborhood in East Dallas] as the district's best non-magnet school" even though Rice's raw test scores, while above the DISD average, were far below Lakewood's.[2] As of 2015 Rice had earned three of five distinctions from the Texas Education Agency (TEA).[4] While many low income schools have a lot of teacher turnover, Rice, as of 20166, has an average teacher tenure of 23.3 years.[2]
Middle schools
  • Billy Earl Dade
    • The school merged with Pearl C. Anderson Middle School, and opened in a new $36 million building in August 2013. In 2015 Nicholson stated that the combination of the two hostile student populations and poor administration from DISD's central office caused it to become, for a period, "Dallas' Worst Public School".[3]
  • Kennedy-Curry
High schools
