Boundary Option Transfer
HISD residents in a limited number of school zones have a Boundary option to attend a designated relief school on a space available option. Other than address, there are no other qualifying criteria. The schools listed below can receive Boundary Option transfers from the designated schools listed below. The School Support Office will determine available space for Boundary Option transfers based upon school enrollment and building capacity. Once a student is accepted on a Boundary option they should be treated as any other zoned student. When the school has received more Boundary Options transfers than seats available, a Boundary Option Lottery will be held by the Office of School Choice.
- Boundary Option to Pin Oak M.S. from Long M.S., Meyerland M.S., & Pershing M.S.
- Boundary Option to West Briar M.S. from Revere M.S.
- Boundary Option to Lamar H.S. from Wisdom H.S.
- Boundary Option to Westside H.S. from Wisdom H.S.
- Boundary Option to Mark White from Briargrove E.S, Emerson E.S., Pilgrim Academy, Piney Point E.S.
