Students learn about the origins of several fruits and vegetables during an International Fruit and Vegetable Festival at Briscoe Elementary.
HISD is rich with diversity, mirroring Houston. Our specialty schools — dual language, language immersion, International Baccalaureate, and internationally focused high schools — offer students the opportunity for broader language study, multicultural explorations, and the skills to function smoothly in a shrinking global environment.
Dual language campuses promote instruction in two languages as equally important, giving English speakers the gift of bilingualism and allowing English-as-a-second-language students to retain their own language while mastering English.
The programs in 30-plus HISD schools not only prepare students for a world that increasingly requires aptitude in more than one language but also teaches the importance and value of respecting other cultures.
