The Duncanville Independent School District has many exemplary schools  and produces student athletes who go on to compete in competitive collegiate, professional, and Olympic sports. Families from all over the metroplex move to Duncanville every year for our schools and community.

The Duncanville Fieldhouse, located just off US Highway 67, is a Metroplex home to youth athletic events. Huge events like the Great American Shootout (GASO) basketball tournament, American Grappling Federation Championships, Red Bull 3X, Dallas Mavericks Youth Basketball Camps, and many more come to Duncanville, Texas, and the Fieldhouse to display some of the best student-athletes.

Founded in the 1840s, Duncanville experienced rapid growth in the 1950s and ’60s with the construction of Interstate 20 and Highway 67. The population of Duncanville, estimated at 40,948, is characterized  by a stable, hard-working workforce that maintained low levels of unemployment, even during the most  challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite being at 92% buildout, Duncanville continues to be an excellent location for redevelopment and adaptive reuse projects. Its Tier 1 status, short commutes to downtown Dallas, Arlington, and Fort Worth, a gainfully employed workforce, and strategic position in the Southwest Dallas region with easy access to Interstate 35 and 45 via Interstate 20 makes our community a unique place for successful redevelopment.
