School districts in the Dallas Region are locally administered and independent of one another. District lines generally relate to city boundaries, but they are not exclusive to them. The Dallas Independent School District — or DISD, as it is known locally — is the region’s largest school district, with nearly 160,000 students and a nationally recognized Magnet and Special Programs, School of Choice and Collegiate Academies/Early  College High Schools. Students attending Dallas ISD schools live in Addison, Balch Springs, Carrollton, Cockrell Hill, Dallas, Farmers Branch, Garland, Highland Park, Hutchins, Mesquite, Seagoville, University Park, and Wilmer.
