Choose from an array of schools for next year

Choice, not chance, determines our students’ destiny, and one of the things that makes HISD great is that we are a district of choice. That means our students are free to attend any school in the district, as long as they meet the requirements and go through the application process.

There are many different schools in HISD. Our students can earn associates degrees at five early-college high schools, essentially getting two years of college for free. Specialty magnet schools include the High School for Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice, DeBakey High School for Health Professions, Carnegie Vanguard High School, and the newly opened Energy Institute High School.

Visit our School Choice web page to learn more about your options, or, if you prefer to meet face to face, come to the School Choice Open House on Nov. 2 at Northwest Mall. Representatives from HISD schools will be there to answer your questions.

There are also School Choice Fairs going on at elementary and middle schools right now, so come out and get your questions answered. Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, visit the schools you are considering during Magnet Awareness Week the first week in November. See for yourself where your child might be learning, and meet the principal and some of the teachers.

As William Jennings Bryan said, “Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice.” We at HISD are proud of the variety of schools in our district, and we are committed to providing parents and students with the information they need to make the right choice.
