Ben Mackey for Dallas ISD


I'm Ben Mackey.

I’ve spent the last six years here in Dallas ISD serving as the Principal at the School for the Talented and Gifted (TAG). During my tenure, TAG has been named the #1 high school in the nation four times by U.S. News and World Report. In my experience as Principal at TAG and as a teacher in Mississippi, I’ve seen first-hand the amazing things that all our students are capable of accomplishing.

I’ve worked to build bridges across differences, authentically engage everyone in our community, foster a culture of love and respect for faculty and students alike, and be uncompromising in the pursuit of helping students achieve their fullest potential. I want to continue to serve students and families from across District 7 and Dallas ISD as your school board trustee.
