Welcome to MIMS! 欢迎来到休斯顿中文沉浸學校!

  • 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 - May 22nd, 2020


    Dear Parents,


    I hope everyone had a great week.  I just have a couple quick announcements to wrap-up this week. 


    1. Student check-out.  You should have received an email about the pick-up date/time/location for your child’s belongings.  Here are some updates about the pick-up.


    a) If the letter stated, the pick-up location was “side of the building” – it means the school bus lane.  Please park in the teacher’s parking lot.

    b) I sent a second email to middle school parents early this week.  Your child’s belongings will be ready for pick-up regardless his/her teacher came back to school this week. 

    c) The weather report says we will be getting some rain next week.  Please plan accordingly. 

    d) 8th grade biology students – please bring back the textbook

    e) 5th grade students who are not returning to MIMS next year and all 8th grade students – please bring back library books and any technology items you checked out from school.


    2. I want to give middle school teachers and Ms. Colion a shout-out for planning the 8th grade promotion ceremony.  Thank you all for your hard work. 


    Thank you all for your support and I wish everyone a safe and restful Memorial Holiday weekend!


    Chung Ying, Principal
