Thank you for your interest in HAIS! We want to make your application process as smooth as possible.

Matrix Score Requirement: Students with a 65 or higher matrix score are eligible to be entered into the HAIS HISD Lottery.
The following is used to calculate an applicant's matrix score:
1) 2022-2023 STAAR Results and 2022-2023 Final Core Grades*
2) 2022-2023 Final Core Grades*
* Grades must be earned from an accredited school. If the applicant did not attend an accredited school during the 2022-2023 school year, they must attend their zoned school for the 2024-2025 school year.
A matrix score is automatically calculated for applicants that included their HISD ID# on their application and attended an HISD school during the 2022-2023 school year.
Students that did not attend an HISD school during the 2022-2023 school year must upload their final report card and standardized testing results (ex: STAAR, IOWA, Logramos, TELPAS) to complete the application for consideration.
