    Dear Parents and Guardians,


    Thank you for your interest in James Hogg Middle School!


    We know that choosing a middle school for your child is an important and exciting step in their educational journey.  Located in the Heart of the Houston Heights area, Hogg Middle School is a wonderful place for students to become part of a community, be challenged academically and learn more about themselves over the next three years.


    • Hogg Middle School boasts a STEM Magnet program that offers opportunities for our students to discover the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.


    • As an International Baccalaureate World School, we also offer a wide variety of core courses and extra-curricular activities to allow students to begin exploring their interests.  Our International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) is school-wide and incorporated into all areas of study.


    • We do also offer a Neighborhood Vanguard program for students who are zoned to Hogg Middle School and identified as G/T (Gift/Talented) by HISD. 


    Because we are considered a zoned neighborhood school, if you live in the Hogg Middle School attendance zone, you are automatically guaranteed acceptance to Hogg.  We do not limit the number of spaces for zoned students.  We do, however, encourage our zoned students to apply for the STEM Magnet Program in order to access those specialty courses.  If you are not zoned to Hogg Middle School, you must apply online and be selected through our lottery.  We are forced to limit the number of spaces for transfer students based on our capacity.   


    Applications for the 2022-2023 school year open on Friday, September 10, 2021 and the deadline for Phase 1 applications is Thursday, November 11, 2021.  You can submit an application online at Choosehisd.com.  We will host virtual tours every Thursday, promptly at 1pm, beginning September 16, 2021 and ending November 11, 2021.  The link to access these virtual tours through Microsoft Teams will be posted on our website. 


    We look forward to meeting you!
