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!

  • Revised Dismissal Plan - August 23rd, 2021


    Dear Parents,


    Thank you for your patience today. I understand that today’s dismissal was unusually long. Below are some of the changes we are making to improve dismissal speed.


    We observed that our original plan had lots of room for communication disconnect, which led to major delays. Our revised plan focuses on streamlining communication/student name announcement.




    1. If you are walking up with your child’s placard, please go to the phoenix door to pick up your child. For your child’s safety, you must present your placard. We won’t be able to release your child without the placard. Also, you will not be able to walk up to the front door or the dragon door to pick up your child.
    2. All car riders will exit from the dragon door. Please give your placard to the staff at the gate as you drive into our school.
    3. Middle school walkers
    1. No sibling – exit at the emergency door by the front door
    2. With younger sibling – pick up sibling in the cafeteria and exit from the dragon door
    1. All bus riders will report to the blacktop (outdoor basketball court) to line up for buses 


    We will communicate this revised dismissal plan with the students over the morning announcement. Please ask your child to pay close attention to tomorrow’s morning announcement.


    Thank you all,
