Mandarin Immersion

Magnet School



Welcome to MIMS! 欢迎来到休斯顿中国浸会学校!

  • Welcome to the homepage of the Mandarin Immersion Magnet School (MIMS) in Houston Independent School District! MIMS is located in Houston, Texas and serves the entire HISD community.
    Mandarin Immersion Magnet School is a vibrant language immersion campus. Our students are diverse culturally, economically, and academically. In Pre-Kindergarten-5th grade, students typically 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 developing biliteracy and bilingualism. In Middle School, all students take Pre-AP courses including accelerated Math and Science. In Grades 6-8, an Advanced Immersion track prepares 8th grade students to take the AP Chinese exam for college credit while 6th Grade students also join our campus at Middle School level for a Beginning Immersion Track.


    Through rich cultural partnerships and special events, students also gain an awareness of and an appreciation for Chinese culture, traditions and practices that enhance their global citizenship.We welcome your questions and look forward to introducing you to our unique and exciting educational program!

Mr. Ying's Weekly Updates

  • Weekly Updates - February 10th, 2020


    Dear Parents,


    I hope everyone had a great weekend!  Please see below for this week’s newsletter. 


    Morning Assembly Recap


    We are temporarily putting morning assembly on hold to improve the safety of morning drop-off traffic.


    Morning Drop-off


    We are adding more cones and using them to form one lane.  We observed that cars were driving around other cars stopped in front of them.  We understand the reason to drive around others, but at the same time it adds unnecessary stress for crossing guard.  Limiting drop-off to one lane allows for a safer crossing zone. 


    Please DO NOT park in the drop-off lane.  If you must stop for more than 30 seconds (approx.), please park your vehicle in the parking lot.  We value kindness and courtesy in our school.  Your thoughtfulness is appreciated.

    Parent Concerns Regarding Coronavirus


    Some of the parents have approached the school admins and expressed their concerns about Coronavirus.  The school district is aware of the situation and they are monitoring the development of this epidemic through close contact with local, state, and federal health organizations.  At this time, we are addressing this concern by reiterating the importance of personal hygiene.  In keeping with the on-going flu season, we ask students and staff to wash hands often, to wear appropriate clothing for the environment/temperature, to be aware of their personal well-being, and see the school nurse and/or go to the doctor if they aren’t feeling well.  If, or when the district receives further instructions from the local or state health departments or CDC, Houston ISD will communicate with the parents in the appropriate manner. Parents should be directed to Nurse Stubblefield with their questions.


    Reserved Parking Spots


    Parents, please be respectful of the reserved parking spots by not park your vehicle there.  Our teachers have reserved parking so that they don’t have to spend extra time finding parking spaces in the morning.  Our generous donors donated thousands of dollars to improve our school, to help us provide highest quality education to our students.  We thank their generosity and show our appreciation by dedicating parking spaces for them.  Once again, please do not park your vehicle at any reserved parking spot.
