HISD Magnet Open House – November 3, 2012 – 9:00am – 12:00pm

Starting Monday, you can apply for HISD Magnet programs for the 2012 – 2013 school year.   Go HERE for all the details.

Magnet schools are specialized schools that have the magnet-like ability draw in students from all backgrounds throughout the city.  Some of HISD’s Magnet programs draw in lots of students, and some do not.

Vanguard is a special program that is designed to meet the needs of gifted and talented students in grades K-12 by providing a learning continuum that is differentiated in depth, complexity, and pacing. These programs require a special application and testing.

Applications for both programs are being accepted November 5, 2012 through January 11, 2013.  Late applications will be accepted on a space-available basis. You can apply to as many Magnet programs as you want. For Vanguard, you only fill out one application and rank your top 3 schools. Testing is required for Vanguard and is held in January.

The Magnet Open House is scheduled for November 3, 2012.  At the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center (4400 West 18th Street) , from 9:00-noon, you can learn about all of HISD’s magnet programs.

Magnet Awareness Week is November 5, 2012 to November 9, 2012.  All magnet schools will be giving tours at 1:00pm.  You do NOT need to tour the school to apply.  If you are accepted, you can schedule a tour before committing to the school.

For important dates, go HERE.
