    Houston ISD’s Mandarin Immersion Magnet School is a vibrant language immersion campus that is just over 7 years old and growing fast. Our students are diverse culturally, economically, and academically. Beginning in Pre-Kindergarten-5th grade, all students 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 providing biliteracy and bilingualism.
     
    In Middle School, all students take Pre-AP Middle School courses including accelerated Math and Science with an opportunity to take High School Biology and Algebra in 8th Grade. In grades 6-8, an Advanced Immersion track prepares 8th grade students to take the AP Chinese exam for college credit. 6th Grade students join our campus at the middle school level for a Beginning Immersion Track also.
     
    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. A close partnership with our PTO provides a range of after-school activities such as UIL and Robotics.
