• At HISD’s Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion Magnet School, beginning in pre-kindergarten, 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.

    Through rich cultural partnerships and special events, students also gain an awareness of and an appreciation for Chinese traditions and practices that enhance their global citizenship.
