West Dallas Community School was founded in 1995 to serve the families of West Dallas in Texas, an area of extreme poverty that for decades had been a forgotten part of the city. The school offers a college preparatory Christian education for children in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. In the West Dallas Community, one in three families lives in poverty and only 35% of adults finish high school. In contrast, 94% of West Dallas attendees graduate high school.
A portion of every school project Pantheon completes is donated to support West Dallas Community School's educational initiatives.
