Welcome to the homepage of the Mandarin Immersion Magnet School (MIMS) in Houston Independent School District! MIMS is located in Bellaire, Texas and serves the entire HISD community.
The school opened in August 2012, initially serving grades PK-2. We are expanding our Mandarin Immersion program to grade 6 this school year (2016-17). We are very proud to be the first 100% dedicated Mandarin language immersion magnet school in Texas, and look forward to serving our community for a long time.
In November of 2012, Houston voters approved the HISD bond, which not only meant that MIMS would receive a brand new multi-million dollar building, but would also become a campus serving grades PK-8! In the coming years we will work to develop a middle school immersion curriculum which continues our commitment to excellent instruction and rigorous academics.
We welcome your questions and look forward to helping you learn about our unique and exciting educational program.
