About Game Development Design School

  •   Game + Development + Design, School at Burleson ISD

    Game Development Design School is a secondary choice school currently offered to students grades 6 through 11, adding a grade level each year as it builds up to the first graduating class in 2023. Grades 6 through 8 students are determined by an application and lottery system. However, students wanting to come to or remain at GDDS for high school must apply and interview in order to be considered for acceptance. 

    Our teachers, staff, and campus leadership are dedicated to providing a uniquely-customized learning experience for the next generation of video game creators and tech giants. We serve students who possess the highest level of passion for game development, game design, computer science, and programming. 

    Student success is our top priority. At GDDS, we are dedicated to delivering the highest quality of education to students that engages them in the rigorous expectations of daily learning. Our collective focus promotes a stimulating culture where excellence occurs daily. 

    GDDS uses the Modern Classrooms Project approach to teaching and learning in which teachers deliver blended learning in a self paced manner by unit that includes enrichment opportunities for each student. As GDDS students work in a self paced manner, our teachers facilitate this process through careful planning, implementation, and monitoring of the blended learning model. To explore Modern Classrooms Project in more detail to see if GDDS is the best fit for you, please visit their website @ HTTP://MODERNCLASSROOMS.ORG

    We look forward to developing each of our students through rigorous education in core content and video game design and development at Game Development Design School!
