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!
