Buckner Preparatory Opens August 2019!

Dear East Grand Prep Family,

Five years ago, we moved our campus to our current location on East Grand Avenue. With your help and support, the school has grown from under 200 students to over 850 students.   We are almost at capacity at the East Grand Preparatory (EGP) campus.  So, I am excited to announce Cityscape Schools is opening a new campus, Buckner Preparatory, this August for the 2019-2020 school year, at 8510 Military Parkway, Dallas, TX, 75227 (east of Buckner Blvd).  

Buckner Preparatory will open with 250 students, grades Pre-K 3 through 3rd grade.  Buckner Preparatory will expand one grade each year until it reaches 8th grade.  Cityscape will be building a new state-of-the-art Early Childhood Center to open August 2020 as well as a brand-new high school on that same property.  

East Dallas High School will open August 2020 in the current facility until a new high school can be built.   The high school will serve students from EGP and the new Buckner Preparatory campus.  The new location is approximately a 12-minute drive from our current campus on East Grand Ave.  This new 13-acre property will eventually provide a Pre-K through 12 pathway that will include two Pre-K – 8 Lower Schools and one 9 – 12 Upper School which will serve 3000 students.  

I will be offering four parent meetings to offer more information and answer questions about the new school expansion.  I will also explain the school’s transfer policy in case you will want to transfer your child to the new school.  Cityscape will allow transfers between our schools for currently enrolled students at EGP.   The intent of this transfer policy is to accommodate families who live or work closer to Buckner Preparatory than East Grand Preparatory.  You will have until June 17th to contact the district’s registrar office at (214)-545-6571 if you would like to request a transfer. After June 17th, we will start filling all open student spots from our waitlists.

Cityscape needs your help to fill the new campus.  Please tell your family and friends about the great opportunity to enroll their children at Buckner Preparatory.  The school will be offering a $50 Visa Reward card for every student you refer and enrolls in either EGP or Buckner Preparatory. These gift cards will be delivered after confirmed attendance during the first week of school in August.

I know many of you had to wait on the EGP waiting list to get your child enrolled.  Over the last five years, there have been thousands of children patiently waiting to get into EGP.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to immediately enroll in another great Cityscape school.

The staff is working hard to get everything ready for Buckner’s opening this August.  My commitment is to provide as many Dallas urban children a high-quality education regardless of their zip code.  Thank you for being part of the Cityscape family and for your continued support.
