News and Updates
Board of Trustees Announcement (July 18, 2019).
Dear TKS Family -
I’m writing to share some big news with you: The Kessler School is under contract to purchase a potential new campus!
Located just a few minutes away at what’s currently Calvary Baptist Church (1822 W. 10th Street in the Sunset Hills neighborhood), the expansive, historic campus allows for the school’s future growth and supports our mission to provide high-quality, personalized education in Oak Cliff, particularly as we expand through 8th grade. It will also provide The Kessler School a valuable opportunity to build equity in its facilities and secure our future for decades to come.
Below is a photo taken after the educational building (on the left) was added in the late 1950s.
We’re currently in the inspections period and will also need to apply for a Special Use Permit from the City. Both are fully in the works, but it’s important to keep in mind that it’s not a done deal. That said, if things go as planned, it could open for some students in the 2020-2021 academic year.
We will keep you posted as we have more updates. The Trustees and staff appreciate your enthusiasm about this exciting news.
Best wishes -
President, Board of Trustees
