Welcome!

  • 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!

    Dear Parents,

    I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Please see below for this week’s newsletter.

     

     

    Morning Assembly Recap

     

     

    This week we sang 新年歌曲-新年好 (Happy New Year) in the morning.

    We learned 千里之行,始于足下, a thousand miles begin with a single step.

    Idiom of the day 温故知新, it means you gain new understanding, new insight as you review old materials.

     

     

    Reserved Parking Spots

     

     

    Parents, please be respectful of the reserved parking spots by not parking your vehicle there.  Our teachers have reserved parking so that they don’t have to spend extra time finding parking spaces in the morning.  Our generous donors donated thousands of dollars to improve our school, to help us provide the highest quality education to our students.  We thank their generosity and show our appreciation by dedicating parking spaces for them.  Once again, please do not park your vehicle at any reserved parking spot.

     

     

    Used Book Exchange Fair

     

     

    A parent came to me with a brilliant idea of starting a used book exchange fair.  I am so excited about this idea I want to put it out there.  I will work out the details with our staff and parent volunteers.  Stay tuned for more information.

     

     

    Morning Drop Off

     

     

    1. If you wish to walk your child to the front door in the morning, please park your car in the designated parking area; not in the fire lane. 
    2. If you wish to drop off your child and have them walk to the front door by themselves, please use the drop off lane and NOT drive through the parking lot area.  You CANNOT drop off your child in the parking lot area because it is UNSAFE.
    3. If you are in the drop off lane, please stay in the car – do not exit the car because it’ll delay morning drop off. 

     

    Thank you all for your understanding and for keeping all of our precious children safe.
