    Dear Parents/Guardians:


    Thank you for your interest in Lanier!


    Applications for the 2020-2021 school year will go live on Friday, September 27, 2019.  If you are interested in touring our campus the tour link (on the left side of the page) will take you to the dates and times of our tours.  Lanier follows the district magnet calendar in regards to tours.  We will host tours every Thursday beginning October 3, 2019 and ending December 5, 2019 (except for Thanksgiving and Halloween).  No additional tour dates will be offered.  Tours will begin promptly at 1:00 PM and generally last approximately 60 minutes.  Parking is limited around the Lanier campus, so please allow time for parking and sign-in before tours begin.


    General Program Information:

    Lanier has three programs:  Vanguard (GT), International Baccalaureate MYP programme, and MYP/Pre-AP.  Our International Baccalaureate MYP programme is school wide and incorporated into all areas of study.  Our Vanguard program is for all students identified as GT through HISD.  Our MYP/Pre-AP program is for zoned students who are not identified as GT.


    Zoned Information:

    Lanier is a zoned neighborhood school.  If you live in the Lanier attendance zone, you are automatically guaranteed acceptance to Lanier.  We do not limit the number of zoned spaces.  If you are zoned and your child is identified as GT, your child qualifies for our Vanguard program.  If you are zoned and your child is not identified as GT, your child qualifies for our MYP/Pre-AP program.  If you are not zoned to Lanier, you must apply online, be identified as GT by HISD, and be selected through our lottery.


    Warmest Regards,
