One Observer staffer loves to tell the story of when he realized that BTW is the exception to the rule for DISD schools. Early in his daughter's freshman year, she saw a crowd of kids rush over to surround some commotion in the courtyard. She assumed what any other kid fresh from a DISD middle school would and asked an onlooker, "Ooh, who's fighting?" but got a quizzical look in response. The girl made her way forward in the crowd and saw what was the source of the hubbub: a breakdancing competition. Those are the kind of kids who get accepted into the prestigious, national award-winning arts magnet. It's like Glee or High School Musical come to life. Too bad the vast majority of DISD high schoolers' experience is more like Stand and Deliver except without the savior teacher.
