Public Schools
The Lochwood area public schools are served entirely by the Dallas Independent School District (DISD).  In addition to the elementary, middle and high schools that lie in the Lochwood attendance zone, DISD also has several specialized magnet programs, and a there are many choices of private schools available close to Lochwood.
Martha T. Reilly Elementary is located at 11230 Lippitt, which is centrally located in Lochwood and walking distance from many homes in the neighborhood. During the past few years, Martha Turner Reilly Elementary School has implemented the Institute for Learning model of instruction, which includes the Principles of Learning and learning walks. The use of these research-based practices has resulted in increased student achievement and performance. The school has seen its Academic Excellence Indicator System rating improve from academically acceptable to recognized for two consecutive years. These practices also provide for more academic rigor in the classroom and collaboration among teachers.
The school hosts many activities that serve as a connection with parents and the community and help to enhance student success. Parents are valued partners in education and are encouraged to participate in school activities. Parent involvement includes assisting in the classrooms, participation in the PTA and on the Site-Based Decision Making committee as well as other various activities. The school also hosts frequent parent workshops, such as conversation groups, that assist parents in learning conversational English.
Robert T. Hill Middle School is located a short distance west of Lochwood at 505 Easton Road and is walking distance from some areas of Lochwood. At Robert T. Hill Middle School, our goal is to provide academic and   extracurricular learning opportunities that develop the whole child and prepare students for high school.
The faculty and staff use a collaborative team approach in order to provide a rigorous curriculum to all students. Each grade level is organized by core subjects that allow teachers to establish long-term relationships with their students. Within this structure, students become more organized and develop socially and emotionally at the middle school level.
After-school tutoring is provided in all core subjects. Students needing tutoring assistance are identified through early interventions. The PTA and Site-Based Decision Making committee are actively involved and support the mission and goals of the school.

Bryan Adams Leadership Academy High School is located a short distance southeast of Lochwood at 2101 Millmar. BA plans to phase-in a school-wide Leadership model designed to produce confident, empathetic, communicative leaders who are prepared to tackle the complex problems of tomorrow. The core feature of the model is that, in sophomore and senior year, all students will take part in a culminating portfolio defense of their leadership skills and academic achievements in front of a committee of educators and community leaders. Bryan Adams would continue to enroll its students from the traditional attendance zone.
