Welcome to MIMS! 欢迎来到休斯顿中国浸会学校!

  • Welcome to the homepage of the Mandarin Immersion Magnet School (MIMS) in Houston Independent School District! MIMS is located in Houston, Texas and serves the entire HISD community.
    Mandarin Immersion Magnet School is a vibrant language immersion campus. Our students are diverse culturally, economically, and academically. In Pre-Kindergarten-5th grade, students typically spend half of the instructional day in a Mandarin class and the remaining half in an English class with native speakers in each language.This balanced approach employs rigorous academic standards in core subjects while developing biliteracy and bilingualism. In Middle School, all students take Pre-AP courses including accelerated Math and Science. In Grades 6-8, an Advanced Immersion track prepares 8th grade students to take the AP Chinese exam for college credit while 6th Grade students also join our campus at Middle School level for a Beginning Immersion Track.


    Through rich cultural partnerships and special events, students also gain an awareness of and an appreciation for Chinese culture, traditions and practices that enhance their global citizenship.We welcome your questions and look forward to introducing you to our unique and exciting educational program!

Mr. Ying's Weekly Updates

  • Weekly Updates - April 7th, 2020


    Dear Parents,


    I hope you and your family are well and healthy.  Please see the following for my mid-week update. 


    1. I will be making a morning announcement to all MIMS students next Monday, 4/13/20 at 8:30 AM.  Your child(ren) has already been invited to my virtual morning announcement via Teams.  If you and your child have no access to Teams, you may still join us with this link.  You don’t need Microsoft Teams to watch.  If you aren’t available at that time, we will record the message and send you a link at a later date.  
    2. Transportation survey.  If your child(ren) needs to take school bus in the 2020-2021 school year, please complete this survey
    3. Would you like to be more involved at MIMS?  We need YOUR help!  The PTO is looking for more parents to get involved.  We welcome everyone’s help.  Please contact for more information. 
    4. Speaking of PTO, as you may have heard from Nhi, we will be cancelling our April general meeting, and further, will need to postpone elections for next year’s board until the beginning of next school year. 
    5. Do you know anyone in distress during this difficult time?  Here is a link to lots of resources that’ll help families get through this tough time. 
    6. HISD has designated next week, April 13-17, as Virtual Spirit Week to celebrate our new distance learning and add a little fun to the daily curriculum. Each day will be designated with a different theme, and everyone is invited to take part in the daily challenge.


    As you participate in the daily activities, take photos or short videos and share them on your social media accounts using the hashtag #HISDSpiritWeek. The idea is to flood social media with positive learning activities to create a sense of community, school spirit, and inclusivity. Here is the schedule:


    Monday, April 13: Move-it Monday

    It’s important to keep moving while staying home. It could be dancing, yoga, walking or running or participating in a virtual fitness class. What’s your P.E. routine? Share a photo or short video of your activity.


    Tuesday, April 14: Career Day

    Think about your future and picture yourself in your dream job. Do you want to be an astronaut, a doctor, a teacher or a scientist? Dress up and share a photo of yourself dressed for your career of choice.


    Wednesday, April 15: Whatcha Reading Wednesday

    What’s on your current reading list? Share a photo of your book or a video of yourself reciting a favorite passage.


    Thursday, April 16: College Colors Day

    No matter your age, it’s important to start thinking about college. It could be a college that your brother, sister, parent or teacher attended – or a college you’ve already been accepted to attend! Dress in the colors of that school or wear a college T-shirt and share your photo.


    Friday, April 17: Fine Arts Friday

    This is your day to be creative! Draw or paint a picture, sing a song, play an instrument, or read a poem. Share with your fellow students how you are expressing your creativity at home with a photo or short video.


    Don’t forget to share your photos and videos on social media each day, using the hashtag #HISDSpiritWeek, and we will share your posts on the district’s Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts. Thanks for participating, and Happy Virtual Spirit Week!
