    Dear Parents/Guardians:


    Thank you for your interest in Lanier!


    Applications for the 2018-2019 school year have now closed for Lanier Middle School.  We are no longer accepting magnet applications for any grade level.  


    General Program Information: 

    Lanier has three programs:  Vanguard (GT), International Baccalaureate MYP programme, and Pre-AP/MYP.  Our International Baccalaureate MYP programme is school wide and incorporated into all areas of study.  Our Vanguard program is for all students identified as GT through HISD.  Our Pre-AP/MYP program is for zoned students who are not identified as GT.


    Zone Information: 

    Lanier is a zoned neighborhood school.  If you live in the Lanier attendance zone, you are automatically guaranteed acceptance to Lanier.  We do not limit the number of zoned spaces.  If you are zoned and your child is identified as GT, your child qualifies for our Vanguard program.  If you are zoned and your child is not identified as GT, your child qualifies for our Pre-AP/MYP program.  If you are not zoned to Lanier, you must apply online, be identified as GT by HISD, and be selected through our lottery.


    Warmest Regards,


    Jennifer Garza Pender

    Lanier Vanguard Coordinator
