ESD can be found on three campuses and will continue to develop. It currently has 248,000 feet square (23,000 m²) in facilities. The campus housing the guts and Upper Schools can be found on Midway Road and spans greater than 39 acres (160,000 m2). The very first building – the gymnasium – was finished in the late 1970s. Classes were held during a workout session before the main building was finished in 1981. A serious growth of the main building was carried out 1986. This expansion included a library, publication suite, fine arts facilities, classrooms, and offices. The Cook Math and Science building was finished in 1994. It houses the science labs, math classrooms, and a couple computer labs. All Saints Chapel was opened in 2002 previously, daily chapel ended up held in the gym. The Susan M. Frank Center for Arts and Humanities Building opened in 2005. Along with humanities classrooms and expanded music facilities, it includes a higher-tech proscenium theater, a black box theater, ceramic studio, along with a darkroom/digital imaging suite. A brand new inclusions in the Merrell Road campus certainly are a 55,000 sq . ft . (5,100 m²) center for arts and humanities as well as a new Episcopal School of Dallas stadium filled with state-of-the-art athletic turf, locker rooms, and accommodations for home and visiting fans. ESD’s rural outdoor education center, situated in northern Collin County, is on 165 acres (.67 km²). The Stephen B. Swann Athletic and Wellness Center opened in 2010, it houses the Dining Commons, sports and physical eduction facilities, and auxiliary offices. The 100,000+ sq . ft . building carries a competition gymnasium, indoor track, strength and conditioning, and also cardio work-out rooms, sports medicine facilities, a multi-purpose dance studio, expanded locker rooms, a team room and coaching offices, campus bookstore, and concessions. The brand new Dining Commons supplies a 480-seat dining room overlooking the quarry and also the Louise Crespi Benners Courtyard, a cutting-edge kitchen and meal serving area, and offices for varsity auxiliary services. The kitchen functions as a “laboratory” where students and parents can study from nutritional experts and professional chefs. Nutrition-based curriculum continues to be built-into the bottom, Middle, and Upper Schools, under the guidance of the Center for Human Nutrition in the University of Texas Southwest Clinic as well as the recently formed ESD Nutrition Curriculum Committee. The greatest goal would be to influence the city long after they graduate. One of the schools rivals is St. Phillips School and Community Center.
