• Magnet Programs

    • HISD has been an open-choice district for more than 40 years. This means that students are not limited to their neighborhood — or zoned — schools, but may apply to the district’s many magnet programs. These include language-immersion schools, Vanguard/GT schools, STEM programs, Montessori, International Baccalaureate, dual language, fine arts, and more. For a complete list of magnet programs, details on how to apply, and deadlines, please see HISD School Choice.

    Shadowbriar STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) Magnet Program:

    We are an all school magnet meaning all students participate in the magnet program.

    We have no attendance boundary so all students will need to apply to our school using the magnet application process.

    The cornerstone of our first magnet year will be our STEAM projects.  Quarterly projects based on science, math, language arts, and social studies.  These projects will be produced in class using the Independent Investigation Method. 


    Magnet Announcement
    Student magnet transfer status will roll over to the 2023/2024 school year.  Students attending Shadowbriar on a boundary option transfer will need to go through the magnet application process in order to attend Shadowbriar next year.
