Educators at Texans Can Academy - Dallas Oak Cliff stress the importance of local partnerships with representatives from DISD feeder schools.
Texans Can Academy - Dallas Oak Cliff recently held an open house to build partnerships and pursue opportunities with local feeder schools in hopes of making sure every student is provided with the resources they need.

Representatives were very impressed by our program structure and the many services our organization offers students.”
Throughout the day, student ambassadors gave tours of the campus while answering questions about the programs and services. Visitors learned about the Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment (FIE) program, with classes designed to enhance the cognitive functions needed for academic learning through a series of exercises and specialized techniques for students with learning challenges.
