HISD communication

This year, HISD welcomed the inaugural class of the nation’s first Arabic Immersion Magnet School. The school received more than three applications for every available seat and is now filled with a diverse group of students from all around Houston. And this fall, HISD will open the doors of the new Mark White Elementary School, which will house the French Immersion Program, the first of its kind in public education.

HISD is ready to open a French-English immersion program in a Houston public school for the fall of 2016!

We need your support and commitment to make this happen.
