Welcome to The Rice School
The Rice School/La Escuela Rice is an HISD Magnet School for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), serving grades K-8. Our middle school is a relatively small one (approximately 480 students) that shares a campus with our elementary school of approximately 680 students. All of our students are admitted on a magnet transfer; therefore, we have no zoned attendance.
Mirroring the diverse population of Houston, over ninety percent of our students are either Hispanic (48%) or African American (47%). We have approximately 68% of our students who are economically disadvantaged. Special education students are comprised of about 6% of our students, while English language learners account for 17%. Parents, students, teachers and staff agree that The Rice School/La Escuela Rice offers a unique opportunity to grow in a community of diverse STEM-focused learners.
