The 1999 Society

In 1999, dedicated individuals launched The Kessler School, thus reshaping the future of education in North Oak Cliff. The 1999 Society, named in honor of these visionary founders, believes TKS is building an UNLIMITED educational experience second-to-none in Oak Cliff and rivaling all schools in the Metroplex.

The 1999 Society Members support TKS Academics that rigorously prepare students for their next level, enhance the Student Experience that uniquely shapes their world perspective, and empowers Faculty and Staff to strive for excellence to cultivate a continued passion for learning.

You are invited to join this society of families and parents who are building this unique and UNLIMITED experience for our students that values individuality, cultivates a passion for learning, instills respect for others, and promotes leadership and community services.

When you join at the annual $1,999, your name will be listed as a Founding Member of The 1999 Society. You will receive special recognition throughout the year at special TKS events and in the TKS Annual Report. A special Annual Fund sticker for your car and a yard sign will announce your support and let everyone know your committed to the success of The Kessler School. The 1999 Society members will also be asked to participate in the three annual campaigns that support TKS Annual Fund Pillars: North Texas Giving Day, Holiday Giving, and Spring into Springtime.

Thank you for your support and dedication to our school!
