HISD has been an open-choice district for
more than 40 years. This means that students are not limited to their
neighborhood — or zoned — schools, but may apply to the district’s many magnet
programs. These include language-immersion schools, Vanguard/GT schools, STEM programs,
Montessori, International Baccalaureate, dual language, fine arts, and more.
