• Thank you for your interest in Askew and our Vanguard program!

    HISD's Vanguard magnet programs serve students who have been identified as gifted and/or talented in intellectual ability or creativity. Vanguard curricula are both accelerated, continually rigorous, and enriched with a foreign language each year throughout a student's academic life.

    The Askew Vanguard Program, for grades K- 5, is part of HISD’s Magnet School Choice System. Askew Vanguard is a program of approximately 300 identified gifted and talented students from across Houston ISD. For over 37 years, Askew has provided concentrated and accelerated instruction in all content areas, making it a stellar gifted program. The program provides for the development and implementation of a curriculum for gifted and talented children who reflect a diverse student body. The overall goals of the Askew Vanguard program are to provide gifted students additional opportunities for developing their exceptional talent and pursuing their special interests within an environment that promotes divergent, creative, and critical thinking and reasoning skills.
