    Dear Parents/Guardians:


    Thank you for your interest in Lanier!


    General Program Information:

    Lanier offers three programs:  Vanguard (GT), International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IBMYP), and Pre-AP. 

    Our International Baccalaureate MYP programme is school wide, incorporated into all areas of study, and all students particpate in our IBMYP programme so no additional application is necessary.  Our Vanguard program is for all students identified as GT through HISD and our MYP/Pre-AP program is for zoned students who are not identified as GT.


    Zoned Information

    If you reside 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/MYP program.  If you are zoned and your child is not identified as GT, your child qualifies for our Pre-AP/MYP program.  Zoned students will automatically roll over into our HISD Connect/Power School system, so there is no need to apply online or fill out any registration paperwork prior to the start of school. 


    Magnet Information 

    If you do not reside in the Lanier attendance zone, your child must apply online and must be identified as GT by HISD in order to be placed and selected through our lottery.  We are only accepting 6th grade magnet applications for the 22-23 school year, no other transfers are offered for Lanier MS.
