Parents, children, and staff, thank you for a wonderful First Day of School! Due to everyone's efforts, things went very well. It was exciting to see even our newest Pre-K students using Chinese on day one. Thank you, parents, for supporting our new procedures, and special thanks to the PTO for hosting the Boohoo Coffee and the photo shoot!
Welcome to the homepage of the Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion Magnet School (MCLIMS) in Houston Independent School District! MCLIMS 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 Chinese language immersion program to grade 3 this school year. We are very proud to be the first 100% dedicated Mandarin language immersion magnet school in the Houston area, and look forward to serving our community for a very long time.
In November of 2012, Houston voters approved the HISD bond, which not only meant that MCLIMS would receive a brand new multi-million dollar building, but would also become a campus serving grades K-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.
Our instructional day begins at 7:45 in the cafeteria. Your child's success starts with arriving at school on time. We don't want your child to miss out on valuable learning opportunities because every minute counts! Last year, our attendance was 96% and that cost us about $55,000! When your child is "MISSING SCHOOL", your child is "MISSING OUT".
We welcome your questions and look forward to helping you learn about our unique and exciting educational program.
