How can I get my 9 year old into a HISD magnet program?


chicagojlo May 16, 2013

We're moving to Houston this summer and I'd like to send my kids to HISD, but we can't afford to live in the attendance boundaries for the better schools. My 3rd grader would love to attend a Stem or fine arts magnet, and would easily test into a vanguard, but I cannot figure out how to even apply for any of these schools for the 2013-14 school year. Is there even a way to do it? Thanks

Normally magnet applications are accepted in November and awards letters are sent in April. So the magnet process takes place a year prior to the school year. You need to contact the school to see if they can make an exception since you are just moving to the city.
